MM tagged me with I Love Lucy's latest tag (rules here).
So what's our song, V's and mine? Shakira's Underneath Your Clothes.
V and I had recently got together. Late one night I was listening to this song when I realised that it described V and me pretty well. He picked up the pieces and taught me to feel again. That sounds melodramatic but you don't know how low I'd got. For nearly 6 weeks I had stayed at home mostly, sitting in silence against my bedroom wall, waiting to feel better, dying inside trying to accept that the love of my life was going, that I couldn't even dream about him any more. And then came V and late night calls that kept me distracted, and excursions out, and constant teasing, and slowly, I came alive again. It was a long time ago but the pain feels like it's only just gone. And I hope I never forget how it felt to let the pain and love go.
The next time V came over I sang it for him. And I remember the look in his eyes. And it's been our song since then.
I seem to be getting some new readers these days. And mostly, I don't know their stories. So you know, if you've started reading Sunny Days in these last six months, do pick up this tag and come and tell me. I'd love to hear the story behind your song.
