Turning Tables

When Chasing Pavements was introduced to me, I started liking other songs of Adele. I love the lyrics of her songs. And recently, another song struck me, when it was performed by Gwyneth Paltrow in Glee.

Close enough to start a war,
All that I have is on the floor.
God only knows what we're fighting for,
all that I say, you always say more.

I can't keep up with your turning tables.
Under your thumb, I can't breathe.

So I won't let you close enough to hurt me.
No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me.
I can't give you what you think you gave me.
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables,
To turning tables.

Under hard? The skies I see, ooh.
where love is lost, your ghost is found.
I've lived a hundred storms to leave you.
As hard as you try, no I will never be knocked down.

I can't keep up with your turning tables.
Under your thumb, I can't breathe.

So I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no.

I won't ask you, you to just desert me.
I can't give you what you think you gave me.
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables,
Turning tables.

Next time I'll be braver,
I'll be my own savior.
And if I'm the cause for me,
Next time I'll be braver,
I'll be my own savior,
Standing on two feet.

I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no.
I won't ask you, you to just desert me.
I can't give you what you think you gave me.
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables.
To turning tables,
Turning tables, yeah,
Turning, ooh.


The song helped me realize that I've been blaming him for all our arguments especially in times when I feel like he has not matched what I have given in our relationship, so I turn the tables back at him so he always lose.
