I have mixed feelings about the song by Simply Red – If You Don’t Know Me By Now. My husband requested this one night and had the band dedicate it to us and so it was a lovely romantic gesture but it came at a rough spot in our marriage, not long after I learned of an infidelity. It had been a few months since the incident and I was trying to forgive him. The words to this song were his way of telling me that I could believe him.
Unfortunately, that was a lie, as I later learned.
But all of that is water under the bridge. really. 1989 was a long time ago.
I have created an album on my facebook page called Words to Sing By to accompany this weekly post. Check it out!
