You may or may not know that Dawn Penn (a Jamaican reggae singer) sang the once popular song – “You Don’t Love Me (No, No, No)” (1994)
Every time I sing this song, despite being catchy, the words stand out to me.
That’s because I’m a literal thinker and I find fault in the lyrics.
I’m going to dissect this song in 3 posts; comparing it to real life and I’m sure some of you will directly or indirectly identify with the points we are about to explore.
However, what you do with this awareness is important.
*NB: The below comparison is based on the premise that one person in the relationship has done something wrong whilst the other person has been ‘good’ to them.
1) “No no no, You don’t Love me and I Know Now”
Many times I’ve heard some one say, “He/She doesn’t love me any more”… or “I don’t think he/she loved me from the start”.
In reply I’ve heard people say “He/She is just not in to you”. – This could be true..
The song says “you don’t love me AND I KNOW NOW” – As soon as you know someone doesn’t love you any more, something is supposed to; happen, change, react or evolve within you or around you. News like this would provoke some sort of reaction or response from you; i.e feel upset, hurt, unhappy, wanting to let go of things with that person, moving out, changing your perception and the like.
But time and time again, they find themselves in the same ol’ situation, nothing changes, no improvement made, no new declarations of ones undying love to make them stay. Yet the girl or guy still remains in the unhealthy relationship.
I call it unhealthy relationship because if you were in a healthy relationship, shouldn’t you both experience Love, Commitment, Faithfulness, Time, Effort, Companionship, Dedication, Trust & Respect that you rightly deserve?
What do you think you deserve?
