Sisters of Mercy “When You Don’t See Me” (Goth/Rock) [Music/Track]

Year: 1990
Genre: Goth/Rock
From: ”Vision Thing” LP and ”When You Don’t See Me” EP

I’m not a big love song person, that’s why I have a hard time with for example, early The Beatles and other ”She loves me yeah, yeah” songs or a lot of slow paced ”love me” soul from the 1960’s. It doesn’t give me anything, but that can have to do with how we define love and what’s sleazy and what genuine. I also have a hard time to express why I like the love songs that I like. Maybe because I think early love is more pain than pleasure? Maybe I don’t really like love? I have often wished for myself that I wouldn’t love so I could have gone on and done other things in my life, but maybe I would have then missed out … who knows? Maybe that’s a task for some psychology major somewhere. But when I get the question of what I would choose when it comes to this category, I always think of this one and Depeche Mode ”It’s No Good” first and then I have to think about other titles.

“When You Don’t See Me”

When you don’t see me…

It’s not a matter of going to grow
It’s not a matter of time or how I feel
I’m throwing off the shadow of a better man now
What you see is what you never had

Get real
Get another

I don’t exist when you don’t see me
I don’t exist when you’re not here
What the eye don’t see won’t break the heart
You can make believe when we’re apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you don’t see me…

Oh, it’s kind of different when you’re there
You can lease the peace of mind
You bought a mask, I put it on
You never thought to ask me
If I wear it when you’re gone

Get real
Get another

I don’t exist when you don’t see me
I don’t exist when you’re not here
What the eye don’t see won’t break the heart
You can make believe when we’re apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you don’t see me…

You never learned
You bought me
Everything and less
I turned
You couldn’t let me move
I guess, I don’t deny, it don’t disprove
What you see is what you lost
If I were you I wouldn’t try

Get real
Get another

I don’t exist when you don’t see me
I don’t exist when you’re not here
What the eye don’t see won’t break the heart
You can make believe when we’re apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you don’t see me…
