split screen sadness

Recently, this song is always in my playlist. Split Screen Sadness by John Mayer, taken from the Heavier Things album. Awesome song, if i could say. Honestly i still cant figure out what is the meaning of ‘split screen sadness’ john mayer has said. But if we read the lyric completely, the song tell the story about two persons apart although they feel that they need each other. ok, maybe not each other, but the man is trying to put them back together. Sort of cliche old story but distance complicate the story, yes, distance is the matter. Maybe ‘split screen’ is the way john mayer figuring the distance between. When we saw movie, sometimes the screen splitted to show the condition of two person separated at the same scene.

Well, you may have your opinion about this song, but for me this this such a nice song. Please hear if you have some spare time and enjoy the words.

And I don’t know where you went when you left me but
Says here in the water you must be gone by now
I can tell somehow
One hand on the trigger of a telephone
Wondering when the call comes
Where you say it’s alright
You got your heart right

Maybe I’ll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on the porch ’til you come back home
Oh, right
I can’t find a flight

We share the sadness
Split screen sadness

Two wrongs make it all alright tonight

ALl you need is love is a lie cause
We had love but we still said goodbye
Now we’re tired, battered fighters

And it stings when it’s nobody’s fault
Cause there’s nothing to blame at the drop of your name
It’s only the air you took and the breath you left

Maybe I’ll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on the porch ’til you come back home
Oh, right
I can’t find a flight
So I’ll check the weather wherever you are
Cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight
It might be my only right

We share the sadness
Split screen sadness

I called
Because
I just
Need to feel you on the line
Don’t hang up this time
And I know it was me who called it over but
I still wish you’d fought me ’til your dying day
Don’t let me get away

Cause I can’t wait to figure out what’s wrong with me
So I can say this is the way that I used to be
There’s no substitute for time
Or for the sadness
Split screen sadness
We share the sadness
