Love, romance and heartbreak... some of the most favorite subjects that many songs have been written about.
And rightfully so, because who doesn't need love and maybe a little bit of romance, if the stars are aligned?
And while most men mostly sing about unrequited love, women on the other hand sing their hearts out about the darker side of love and romance: the heartbreak! Few crooners put pen to paper to approach that issue from their perspective, but when they do, you could end up with "
I Got The Blues (Radio Mix)"
by internationally acclaimed independent recording artist AMARU.


"I Got The Blues (Radio Mix)" tackles heartbreak from a man's point of view and while the underlying message of the song is love, the singer ventilates plenty of anger, frustration, sadness and disbelieve. While love doesn't and should never hurt, heartbreak and growing pains are part of life and what perfect subject matter to set to music!


I got the blues
I don't know what to do
You gave yourself to some other guy
I got the blues
What am I to do
I never had the chance to say goodbye


Well you said you were my baby
But that was just a lie
You took off with the homey
I thought I was your guy


I got the blues
But I refuse
To let the pain take over my heart
I got the blues
What is this abuse
I gave you everything that you desired


You took my love for granted
You played me for a fool
I was infatuated
Guess I'm not the one for you


Now I got the blues
It's something we go through
As I slowly watch the days turn into night
I got the blues
You've always been my muse
But to love you is to let you live your life


I felt so very doubtful
Threw caution to the wind
I was right to be distrustful
You were my everything


Mama warned me 'bout that woman
She said you were the kind
The kind to F you over
And trample all over your heart


Now I got the blues
I don't know what to do
You gave yourself to some other guy
I got the blues
What am I to do
I never had the chance to say goodbye
