Last summer I remember hearing Rihanna's "Umbrella" so many times that I wanted to find an umbrella and break it across my head. That, along with Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls." The summer before that it was "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley with any of Bob Sinclair's songs ("World Hold On", "Love Generation") in close second. "Hollaback Girl" from Miss Stefani may have been summer '05? Anyway, after a weekend of driving around out east, with only the radio as our musical host, there is no question that Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Heart" is set to be this Summer's tune. I'm not sure how this was decided as it's not even related to summer, but I do know that over the span of 4 hours we must have heard this song played over eight times, not exaggerating. "

How can someone so young possibly have experienced this much pain in their life?" Good question, Claire. I don't have your answer, but if the airwaves continually make a joint decision to abuse this song each weekend, my ears are going to keep bleeding, keep keep bleeding... If you're interested in just how angst driven Leona has been feeling check out the lyrics below:

Closed off from love I didn't need the pain Once or twice was enough And it was all in vain Time starts to pass Before you know it you're frozen

But something happened For the very first time with you My heart melts into the ground Found something true And everyone's looking round Thinking I'm going crazy

But I don't care what they say I'm in love with you They try to pull me away But they don't know the truth My heart's crippled by the vein That I keep on closing You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love I keep bleeding I keep, keep bleeding love Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear But they talk so loud Their piercing sounds fill my ears Try to fill me with doubt Yet I know that the goal Is to keep me from falling

But nothing's greater Than the rush that comes with your embrace And in this world of loneliness I see your face Yet everyone around me Thinks that I'm going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don't care what they say [ Bleeding Love lyrics found on http://www.completealbumlyrics.com ] I'm in love with you They try to pull me away But they don't know the truth My heart's crippled by the vein That I keep on closing You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love I keep bleeding I keep, keep bleeding love Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love You cut me open

And it's draining all of me Oh they find it hard to believe I'll be wearing these scars For everyone to see

But I don't care what they say I'm in love with you They try to pull me away But they don't know the truth My heart's crippled by the vein That I keep on closing You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love I keep bleeding I keep, keep bleeding love Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love I keep bleeding I keep, keep bleeding love Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love You cut me open and I Keep bleeding Keep, keep bleeding love
