When You Love Someone
James TW Lyrics


Come home early after class
Don't be hanging 'round the back of the schoolyard
I've been called up by a teacher
She says she can't even reach you 'cause you're so far
You've been talking with your fist
We didn't raise you up like this, now did we
There have been changes in this house
Things that you don't know about in this family

It don't make sense, but nevertheless
You gotta believe us, it's all for the best
It don't make sense
The way things go
Son you should know

Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
Sometimes two homes are better than one
Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
Yeah you'll understand
When you love someone

There ain't no one here to blame
Nothing's going to change with your old friends
Your room will stay the same
'Cause you'll only be away on the weekends

It don't make sense but nevertheless
You gotta believe us, it's all for the best
It don't make sense
It don't add up
We'll always love you no matter what

Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
Sometimes two homes are better than one
Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
Yeah you'll understand
When you love someone
When you love someone

Come home early after class
Don't be hanging 'round the back of the schoolyard
And if we're crying on the couch
Don't let it freak you out
This has been so hard

Sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
Sometimes the best intentions just ain't enough
Some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
Yeah you'll understand
When you love someone
When you love someone
When you love someone
When you love someone

Crazy Q

@XxLiving ForGodxX tips for you and any one else.
P.s. my parent's aren't divorced yet entirely either and it's been years, money issues

1. Don't put on a fake smile, it's hard but if your truly upset speak your mind even if you hurt there feelings you need to remember your not a robot.

2. Don't hurt anyone, if you hurt someone it won't solve a thing and you'll just get in trouble. This includes hurting yourself! RED FLAG DON'T DO IT!!!

3. Write yourself notes, if you write about your feelings your experiences it'll help a lot. You can even look back to see what you wrote and see if you even remember them. Then if you want once everything heals you can burn them in a bonfire for smores or keep them.

4. Hold people close, keep people close it'll help you feel like you can trust them a lot more.

5. Seek help if needed, if all your feelings become way to much seek help from some one you trust like a friend, a pet, or a blade of grass. I sometimes will talk to a tree cuz I won't talk back trying to make me feel worse.

That's all but if you need more tips I got some just comment back.🌺
P.s. remember that people care about you💛

Thanks for this song. I grew up in a broken home, my parents divorced right after my 1st birthday.

I know some people that grew up with whole families only to have their parents split up when they were older. That sounds really hard to go through and in a way, I'm glad that I never had to deal with that kind of loss.

Still, growing up without ever knowing what a whole family felt like was tough. I switched homes every single week for my entire life (to keep things fair for my parents, of course), so the "2 homes are better than one" line really hit home, because I never had one home.

Every week, I was driven across town for the handoff, more than often they'd fight. I grew up with a weekly reminder of how much my parents hated each other. And no matter how much I wanted to ignore it, it hurt.

When I was 15, my parents got into another intense custody battle and this time, I was brought into the conversation (great). I had to talk to lawyers on both sides, while being told by each of my parents to bad mouth the other. They hired psychologists to meet with me 2-3 times a week at the court's recommendation because they assumed that there could be something wrong with me while going through all of that.

There was a lot wrong with me. Maybe not in a dangerous way, but in a really sad and hurtful way. I was really socially awkward, never had the chance to develop normal social skills, no one ever wanted to hang out with me and I didn't blame them. I remember eating my lunches in a dark hallway alone for most of high school. Even if the other kids found me mildly interesting, I didn't have time to be around anyone else since I was completely occupied with meetings with lawyers and psychologists.

I never felt like I had a home. I'm still young (24 now) but I've healed a lot since then. Still, a part of me will always wish that I had some kind of normal childhood.

There's a light at the end of my story. I was able to take that sadness and committed myself to a dream of making sure that my future kids NEVER have to go through anything like that. They're going to grow up in a loving home without a care in the world. That's what I tell myself when I'm reminded of the past.

I've let that pain really fuel me to make the most of my life.

Fast forward to the present day, I started my own small business that was funded on Kickstarter (didn't make a lot of money, don't worry, I'm not rich, haha), landed my dream job working for Google, and now I'm pouring myself into a new web comic (I used to draw a lot of silly comics on pieces of paper to cheer myself up when I didn't have anyone else to talk to as a kid, so this is very much a childhood dream come true).

I just ended my 2nd long-term relationship, and it's hard to imagine building that family when I haven't met the right match yet, but I know things will fall into place when they're meant to, I just have to be ready.

I don't know if anyone will read this, but it feels good to get my story out there. This song really opened that up for me, so thank you.

Who knows, maybe someone's going through what I did, or maybe something even worse. I wished someone out there would have told me that things would turn around as long as I had a positive outlook on life, even when it seemed impossible to at the moment.

Maybe this will reach one person like me, maybe it'll help in some way. The pain doesn't go away, but "it gets better", is what I'd say to my old self hiding from my parents in the pantry closet.

I was also a victim of divorce and still are.

I relate to this song so, so much.

My parents got a divorce when I was six. My sister (the youngest) was two.
I had to deal with my dad being verbally abusive to me, and to my mom.

I tried so hard to protect them.
All of them.
But it wasn't enough.
I was given the role from my mom to protect them at a very young age. I was their mom practically. At the age of 9 my dad got remarried. She is so cruel and mean.
She hates my mom and me.
I left visitation at 13.
I was cornered twice by my dad and step-mom. They yelled at me. They told me that I am going to hell, and my mom was leading me their.
No one saved me. They broke me.

So I used music and eventually writing as an outlet.
My sister got molested at the age of 6.
I was the first to know.

I promise you that you will make this through.
You will win. You will find love. Just....
Don't rush into love. Wait until the perfect person comes along and sweeps you off your feet. Also, I have a favor to ask you reader,
If you will be willing to read my poetry on wattpad. (It is called hurt, pain, words, and everything inbetween.) That would mean the world to me.
Thanks for reading.
