Weird reactions and crappy people

    Can a person do something flattering for someone and not get shit on? Or is it not possible?

    I wrote a song for this person I know and played it for her, and she told me today, "I felt violated when you sang it, I wasn't expecting it."
    This is three weeks after not seeing her at all.

    It's like WTF?
    Not a week before she floated the idea of taking a road trip together, me and her, and then she gets all bent out of shape over a song written about her.
    Doesn't make sense to me.

    It's like, if you feel violated when someone does something nice for you, what's your reaction when someone pisses you off?

    May I ask what the song included? Was it sexual or extremely personal?

    Violated? Did you include some lines from NIN's "Closer" or something?

    You're not that guy who sang to Paula Abdul on the first American Idol, are you?

    OK, here it is without her name included for obvious reasons...

    "You make me smile, (name)"
    "you make me smile, (name)l"

    I wanna hold you close, I wanna hold you close, I wanna hold you close, to me"

    There are days when I'm feeling down, there are days when I'm not right, there are days when I'm feeling blue, and then there are days when I'm with you"

    You make me smile, (name)
    you make me smile, (name)"

    "Like a rolling stone" it's not, but I really thought this girl dug me, but I guess I was wrong.

    Yeah, that was creepy. And yet funny at the same time.

    Maybe he just reworked the lyrics to Mind of a Lunatic by the Geto Boys :)

    I don't think it's a great song, like you said, but there's no reason she should feel "violated," like she claimed.

    Maybe you reminded her about something in her past or it struck an awkward chord. Other than that, my friend, I've got nothing.

    Sorry about what happened, Jake.

    For everybody's enjoyment:

    Sounds like you (unintentially) overstepped the relationship's boundaries. Having someone sing a song to you that they wrote about you is pretty intensely personal, and she must not be there. I'm guessing she felt less "violated" than embarrassed.

    Eh, ya I suppose. Feels like I lost out on her based on a technicality...Like the replay judge found that my foot was half an inch out of bounds on the catch. Pretty lame, but those are the breaks I guess.

    Could have sung this one...

    you dont know how much i need you
    while youre near me i dont feel blue
    and when we kiss i know you need me too
    i cant believe i found a love thats so pure and true
    but it all was bull sh*t
    it was a god damn joke
    and when i think of you Linda
    i hope you f***ing choke
    i hope your glad with what youve done to me
    i lay in bed all day long feeling melancholy
    you left me here all alone tears running constantly
    oh somebody kill me please
    somebody kill me please
    I'm on my knees
    pretty pretty please
    kill me!
    i want to die!
    put a bullet in my head
