Out of My Head - John Newman




The Experience: Broken love is a nightmare so strong that some people never even try. Why would you want to love somebody when love hurts in the end?

Music Video: John Newman in a ruined mansion while the pages of his life story burn away. 

Meaning of Out of My Head: You can walk away from a one-night stand, but true love means commitment... and pain if commitment meets betrayal, or doesn't stand the test of time. That's why so many people settle for sex instead of trying for true love. Sex without love is easy. Free to see the world now as my own, sleep with any woman that I want. However, sex without love is just an empty wrapper, glitter without any real happiness inside. But anytime anyone gets close, breaks through my mind, what I have lost. So the real question isn't sex or love. The real question is, how do you make sure your love starts - and stays - true.

Ask Yourself: Are you strong enough to love?


LYRICS:

Living in a broken home alone
16 weeks since you've been gone
As time goes by there's no pieces left
No memories of you & me

To shut out feeling lonely; I get out of my head
Lost everything around me
Not dealing with it well
To shut out feeling lonely; I get out of my head
Why would you want to love somebody when love hurts in the end?

Free to see the world now as my own
Sleep with any woman that I want
But anytime anyone gets close
Breaks through my mind, what I have lost

To shut out feeling lonely; I get out of my head
Lost everything around me
Not dealing with it well
To shut out feeling lonely; I get out of my head
Why would you want to love somebody when love hurts in the end?

You called to say you're missing me, but never ask how I feel
I'm beaten, I'm broke
I'm out of my mind, but learning to get on by fine

To shut out being lonely; I get out of my head
Lost everything around me
Not dealing with it well
To shut out being lonely; I get out of my head
Why would you want to love somebody when love hurts in the end?
