Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I’m sitting here listening to Yahoo music and doing my work when suddenly “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” song comes on. What a story I have that goes with this.

I went out with a frat guy 2 years older than me who had his own apartment during my freshman year of college. We were only together for 3 months when he just dumped me for no reason and in an awful way. I was really crushed, he was my 1st.

One day he sends me a letter saying he heard I was saying to everyone “he took my virginity and dumped me” which I had never said in those words but people sure like to twist things around. So in the letter he says “when I hear Breakfast at Tiffany’s it reminds me of our relationship” and I swear that song haunted me for months. I even told my friend Sussussudio one day it was haunting me and she didn’t believe me so I turned on the radio and THERE IT WAS.

Here are the lyrics:

You say we’ve got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we’re falling apart
You say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don’t care

And I said “What about Breakfast at Tiffany’s?”
She said “I think I remember the film
And as I recall, I think we both kinda liked it”
And I said “Well, that’s the one thing we’ve got”

I see you, the only one who knew me
But now your eyes see through me
I guess I was wrong
So what now? It’s plain to see we’re over
I hate when things are over
When so much is left undone

It used to really upset me to hear it but now I kind of agree with him although it was I think a harsh way to put it at the time. I really learned so much and grew up so much because of him.

    I really liked that song, but now it still gets on my last nerve… they played it SOOOOOO much on the radio, that I could go the rest of my life and never hear it again.

    Lol Duane.

    I love that song, even my mum likes it. Well Robin, it’s growing up pains. Those were the years. I’m still learning new things each and every day. Oh dear Lord, I wish I knew more about men.

    duane – you figure he could have picked a more obscure song instead of one that was top 40 at the time.

    Angel – yeah I’m still learning too…day by day by day…
