Eels _ Ugly Love

It’s time for another music sharing (crowd cheers). I just came across this song by Eels, “Ugly Love, and decided to share it with all of you.

Dear cousin,
I got your letter
It was more than I thought I deserved
Well she sounds perfect, all I dream of
And I dream about so much it is absurd
But when I get there and she sees me
I’ll be impressed if she does not run screaming

My kind of love is an ugly love
But it’s real and it lasts a long, long time

I had a thought while I was sleeping
And I dreamed about a place for us to rest
Eternity under the old oak tree
But I go too far I guess
Maybe I’ll think about tomorrow
And maybe I can get her to stay that long

‘Cause my kind of love is an ugly love
But it’s real and it lasts a long, long time

And if she finds me repulsive
She wouldn’t be the first to wretch
Well I decided one day long ago
I was never gonna be the greatest catch
And if she cares about the car I drive
Then she can get in hers
The moment I arrive

‘Cause my kind of love is an ugly love
But it’s real and it lasts a long, long time

I feel such sorrow in this song as it depicts how repulsive the guy feels about himself and how he would never be perfect enough to deserve love. The things that he can offer to this lover of his is an ugly one, so unsatisfactory that it could never be turned to the purest love. It goes to show how low his self-esteem is and how he is selling himself short and hurting himself unknowingly.

I’d like to think that this song reflects my situation but almost everyone has that emphatic connection to a song they are listening to.

UNTIL NEXT TIME
