Umm, what's wrong with her office? Why weren't they singing along?!?

Is it just me or do other people get wildly depressed when they hear this song? It's made me sad since I was a child

[-] profdc9 29 points 4 months ago

"Please don't take my sunshine away" is both a plea and wistful longing.

[-] [email protected] 18 points 4 months ago

For me it's an overwhelming nostalgia bomb which definitely can feel melancholy, as I had a good childhood, and I guess am pining for those good times.

[-] RememberTheApollo_ 11 points 4 months ago

Some think it’s a song alluding to unrequited love. So that is maybe why we get to feel a little down when we hear it. We’re missing something. Maybe the person who sang it to us, the nostalgia for childhood, or maybe we just get the idea that the lyrics sound just as pleading as they are declarative.

The melody is depressing.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 months ago

Literally can't sing it myself without crying

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

The lyrics are pretty dark, tbh

[-] douglasg14b 30 points 4 months ago

Damn, I texted mine recently and she told me to get over it and grow up :/

Hurts man.

[-] WoahWoah 3 points 4 months ago

Sometimes that's the right mom response too though. 🥰

It's unfortunate that sometimes parents can't be there for their little ones because of their own issues, but it doesn't mean you aren't deserving of compassion (be it as a child or adult). As a therapist, I hope your week goes well and remember today is a new day for something good to happen.

I don't even text mine, don't have that type of connection with her. I just pay obligatory visits every few months, and then we talk about the news and share nothing personal.

My mom was the worst. Violent, loveless, cruel and egocentric. Spend my life in care homes and boarding schools just like my little sister. I still see a shrink 35 years later.

My son has a loving ma and pa. He doesn't like my singing tho...

[-] PorradaVFR 15 points 4 months ago

He might not like it, but he loves it. I have no doubt it makes him feel loved and safe.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

He turned 18 last year and he knows this is his home as long as he likes. We always made him feel we are living together in this house, our house.

I never felt welcome at home in my childhood, my son will never ever have this feeling.

Funny thing is I had a record contract with a now defunkt label when he was born. He must have heard a lot of noise inside his mom's womb, I was just signing up when he was born, heheh.

This is very sweet for them. If I imagine it happening to me, it makes me want to shrivel up.

[-] time_fo_that 2 points 4 months ago

I'd die of second-hand embarrassment

[-] bazus1 9 points 4 months ago

We all deserve the good moms out there.

The bad moms are a coincidence.

[-] Jarix 8 points 4 months ago

After readinf the lyrics i dont understand how people think this song is uplifting and positive.

Its about how absolutely shattered the person singing the song is because of their love leaving them and loving someone else.

Its a song of sadness and melancholy not hope.

Weird how much of the song gets ignored

[-] BilboBargains 6 points 4 months ago

Wholesome 💯

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 months ago

Fuck this hit me hard. I miss having parents.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago

cherish those memories, my parents suck.

[-] anarchy79 4 points 4 months ago

That would have driven me insane. I love you too mom, now just stop please.

[-] [email protected] -2 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

You're an adult and your mom still hasn't been able to retire? What a shitty country this is.

[-] Hagdos 3 points 4 months ago

I'm really curious how the math works for where you think people can retire as soon as their kids start working. Retire at 50? Get kids at 40? Start working at 30?

[-] tcrash 2 points 4 months ago

Don't jump to conclusions
