Love Triangle – RaeLynn




The Experience: What is it like to grow up in a family broken by divorce? In Love Triangle RaeLynn gives us a window into this broken world that she grew up in.



Music videoIn the video we watch RaeLynn as a young girl running back in forth between her two separated parents and their respective lives. She loves being with each of them, but deep down she is always missing the one who is not there at the moment. Deep down in her little girl heart she knows she ought to have them both there all the time to give her the loving home she deserves. This makes the real time RaeLynn in the dark room particularly interesting. She is curled up there alone in a jumpsuit as she recounts her childhood through her tears, a powerful image of how alone and vulnerable she felt as a child without her parents presence.

The Meaning of Love Triangle: This song is actually RaeLynn's true story growing up in a broken family. Deep down every child needs the presence of both of their parents to give them the unconditional love that helps them grow, but so many do not have this and get stuck in a love triangle. Like RaeLynn they spend their childhood in the limbo between their separated parents with two homes, two families, two lives; wandering if love in a straight line really exists.

Ask yourself: If this was your story growing up. What can you do to break the cycle and build a succsessful relationship in your own life?

LYRICS:

Sittin’ on the front step
Little white suitcase
Hearing that diesel
‘Fore it hit the front gate
His headlights burnin’ down a Friday night

Southern Belle statue
Standing in the screen door
Watching her whole world
Head for an old Ford
With a man that can’t look her in the eye

Then I run, to him
Big hug, jump in
And I cry for her
Out the window

Some mommas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to heart
And take a long sweet ride
But some mommas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle
And some of us get stuck
In a love triangle

Bowling alley burger
Fries and a milkshake
Heading to the same old
Two-dollar matinee
Baby, how’s your school been
and how’s your mom?

Patsy Cline echoes
Back off the dashboard
Staring at my boots
And the dusty old floorboards
Baby, two weeks ain’t really all that long

Then I run, to her
Wrap my arms, around her skirt
And I cry for him
Out the window

Some mommas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to heart
And take a long sweet ride
But some mommas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle
And some of us get stuck
In a love triangle (ooh)

Ooh

In a love triangle, yeah

Ooh
Ooh

Some mommas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to heart
And take a long sweet ride
But some mommas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle, oh

And some mommas and daddies
Ran outta love in ninety-four
And some mommas and daddies
Don’t even talk no more
And some mommas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle

And some of us get stuck
And some of us grow up
In a love triangle

Ooh
Ooh
