    You ruin me is a song concerning the father daughter relationship. She talks about being this man's greatest masterpiece, he has shaped who she is, yet he has used her wrong. The man has had an affair, she sings to him that he may have loved her, but through abandoning her mother he is abandoning her. He thought that they would not notice. Yet she did, he acted peculiarly and distanced himself. She talks about being rendered numb at his hand, by this she means that she has lost her identity amidst the hatred and pain. She asks him whether the mistress was worth it, the loss of his family. In the bridge she ruminates on how he refused to participate in something that could he beautiful (i.e. family) "that song you wouldn't sing" and in not participating he has broken the family "broken melody" and he has destroyed his daughter "you're killing me". When she sings about the curtain being drawn and no one being left at home, she refers to how he has lost his family in favor of a cheap affair. Don't cry to me you played me wrong refers to how she feels little sympathy for his cause seeing as he did the wrong to himself.
