My favorite music: Gareth Emery feat. Christina Novelli – Concrete Angel, w/ lyrics: Rebound Relationships?

I love the music production on Gareth Emery’s track featuring Christina Novelli – “Concrete Angel”, the overall mix is super smooth, and Christina’s angelic vocals are simply amazing. I especially like the bridge in the song, where the electro sounding synth cuts through the mix and takes over. This video is banging too! If you make music, then you know what the “meters” are doing in the buildings…lol.

This is a dating and relationships song….the lyrics are so sad…but so true if you think about it. I guess the song is about trying to get to know someone who’s been hurt, and them pushing a new person away because they’re not over the pain of the last love/betrayal/whatever. Listen peeps, we ALL have baggage from our last relationship, sometimes its closer in time so it hurts more, but that is no reason to push someone away because you don’t “think” you’re ready. (How do you know what you want anyway, if you keep agonizing about something that’s obviously over and not looking at what’s right in front of you?)

Do rebound relationships work? Sometimes rebound relationships do work, and If you could just stop thinking about the douchebag who broke your heart before you just met this new person, then you might actually be happy! Yeah, its easy to say, but so hard to apply. We all struggle with trust issues after being hurt…so why not take a chance? Ever heard the trite saying “When one door closes, another opens?”, well it’s actually true, because its impossible to stay in the closet of your broken heart forever. Eventually you have to break out of your crybaby cycle and start dating again, so why wait? If someone is trying to get to know you, you’re attracted to them, and they are sincerely trying to make you happy, then what do you have to lose? Who cares if it’s on the ruins of the demolition from your breakup…flowers do grow in the sand.

Here is the video of Concrete Angel:

Here are the lyrics to Gareth Emery featuring Christina Novelli – “Concrete Angel”:

Let me breath you in, and breath the words in your mouth,
Inside your shivering, the silence shouts so loud.
I just want to, I just want to stay around,
And while my heart beats I promise I won’t let you down.

If I’m somewhere else it doesn’t mean that I don’t see,
That you don’t trust yourself, that’s why you don’t trust me,
It makes me crazy, when you’re crazy, you don’t speak,
You think you know me, but what you know is just skin deep

If you keep building these walls
Brick by brick towers so tall
Soon I won’t see you at all
Till the concrete angel falls
I knew who you were from the start
But now I don’t know who you are
Soon there will be nothing at all
Till the concrete angel falls
