You Ruin Me - The Veronicas




The ExperienceYou play me like a symphony, play me till your fingers bleed. I'm your greatest masterpiece. You ruin me... Every relationship is a workshop where you help others become a true masterpiece, or a ruin...



Music video: The video for You Ruin Me brings out the sexual undertones already present in the lyrics - you play me like a symphony. But they explore infidelity from a very specific angle, that of a young ballet dancer who thought she was special and in love, until she finds out that her instructor is married, and that she destroyed that marriage every time that she shared his bed - Tonight again? It was an affair, not a romance. Her anger at being used and guilt at being the cause of another woman's heartbreak are what truly ruin her.

The Meaning of You Ruin Me: You play me like a symphony, play me till your fingers bleed. I'm your greatest masterpiece... you ruin me. Each of us has more power over others than we can imagine. Everything we say or do can have far reaching consequences, and when we get close to someone, that power grows. The person you love the most is your masterpiece, the thing that shows you for what you are. You can nurture and love... but you can also destroy. The Veronicas explore that idea in depth in You Ruin Me.

Ask yourself: Do you ruin others?

LYRICS:

 Job well done
Standing ovation
Yeah you got what you wanted
I guess you won
And I don't want to hear, they don't know you like I do
Even I could've told you
But now we're done

'Cause you play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I'm your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one's there for you back home
Don't cry to me, you played me wrong
You ruin me

I know you thought
That I wouldn't notice
You were acting so strange
I'm not that dumb
And in the end I hope she was worth it
I don't care if you loved me, you make me numb

'Cause you play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I'm your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one's there for you back home
Don't cry to me, you played me wrong
You ruin me

We're that song you wouldn't sing
Just a broken melody
You're killing me

You play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I'm your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtains drawn
And no one's there for you back home
Don't cry to me you played me wrong
You ruin me
