Rhyming and Lyrics – The Underside of Love

The Underside of Love by Melodie Yvonne

The underside of you and me lies right below the surface
It waits and smiles and tries to hide, but it will always hurt us
It really doesn’t matter what I do or what I say
‘Cause the underside of you might hide, but it won’t go away

I fight with everything I have to try to make us better
I used to rage but now I’m calm through all your stormy weather
But is it really fixin’ things for me to just pretend?
Wish that I could just believe in you and all of this would end

Wish that I could just believe in every single word you say
I wanna have some faith that you can make it go away
But every time your lips are movin’ all I hear are lies
You’re just spewin’ out excuses, makin’ up your alibis

You shift the blame and try to make it everybody else
You’re pointin’ all those fingers, but not lookin’ at yourself
You’re talkin’ ’bout how Jesus would do this and would do that
But you’re just a selfish glutton suckin’ souls and gettin’ fat

The underside of you’s no longer right below the surface
It’s bubbled up so much that all this heartache isn’t worth it
It really doesn’t matter what I do or what I say
‘Cause I’m done with all your bullshit and wish you’d just go away

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
