The written words
If you haven’t heard Cline’s original version of the song here is a video for you to enjoy.
The song talks about the singers’ devotion to her lover. The singer repeatedly forgives her lover after all the hardship and pain she got from him.
“After all you’ve put me through
Well I can’t help it, I just do”
Even though the lover keeps on cheating or did something wrong the singer still take him back in a heartbeat. Can you imagine that, if someone special to you did something terribly wrong will you still take them back? Will you just hide the pain you feel for the sake of saving a relationship?
“Imagine this if you can
I’ve stood more, more than I should stand
But I’d still take you back again…”
It’s easy to answer No unless you are in someone’s shoes. If you can relate to Patsy Cline’s song, “Imagine That,” will you do anything just to save the love that you think is still there? Or will you walk away from a bad relationship?
“Can you believe, I’d swallow my pride
Well yes, yes, I guess you can
‘cause you know you’ve always had my foolish heart
Right in the palm of your hands…”
