Music Monday: A Lover I Don’t Have To Love by Bright Eyes

Often, a part of a lyric will intoxicate our minds. Then the fever sets in, and our obsession grows. We must hear this song. Only then will our fever cease. That is how I feel about ‘A Lover I Don’t Have to Love’ by Bright Eyes today. It’s one of those songs where the lyrics are part tragic and part beautiful.  It’s not quite a pop song, but not entirely rock. Some happy medium. The lyrics, to me, represent the consequences of addiction. I see the song as telling a story about using addiction, whether substance or sex, to mask real emotions.  It’s such a beautiful and haunting song. So this Music Monday is dedicated to the mesmerizing and tragic, ‘Lover I Don’t Have to Love.’
