She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly.

This is the classic song “Brick” by Ben Folds Five. This tells the story about a girl getting an abortion. The lyrics are so powerful yet simple. Here are some of my favorites:

“Now that I have found someone, I’m feeling more alone than I ever have before.”

(I think everyone has felt this way before. Mainly when you’re truly unhappy about the way things are going in your relationship. It’s so clear, simple and true.)

“Can’t you see, it’s not me you’re dying for?”

(This part kills me, for obvious reasons.)

When I saw Ben Folds he played this song and was really passionate about it. He told us this was an experience he had gone through with an ex-girlfriend. He said the experience broke him and his girlfriend. Broke them apart and individually.
