Broken by Seether ft. Amy Lee --The Beast's song…He is for sure a little broken and a lot lonesome.
♫'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you've gone away
You've gone away
You don't feel me here anymore♫
Maybe, there is just one to many retellings of Beauty and the Beast for me, and I'm feeling a little burned out on them. I don't know…I just didn't feel this one as much as other readers did, or even as much as I did with other Beauty and the Beast retellings. I was mostly bored while listening to this, it just couldn't hold my attention for long, although, towards the last 1/3 it did pick up.
Overall, when I really pondered how I felt about this, I realized this story is really deep in a lot of meaningful ways. It was probably, for the most part anyway, just lost on me, because my head is elsewhere, lately.
