Learning the Sad Truth about Love
This hit single tells the sad story of two individuals who are so in love with each other until one woman departs for a long time and returns to find out that their relationship and the feelings of his man towards her have changed. And every time she reminisced on their sweet memories as a couple, the memory of the joy from falling in love was replaced by pure sadness and loneliness.
It is true that finding “the one” and falling in love with them may be the best things that we want to last forever in our lives. Unfortunately, this is not the case sometimes — and that is the saddest truth about love and relationships. Change is the only constant thing in this world.
But don’t be hopeless. You can still find happiness someday. For now, let’s just enjoy the song “You Don’t Seem to Miss Me” by Patty Loveless by clicking the video here.
