Sick and tired (Anastacia)

A song about a failed relationship: I can't live with you anymore.

You can sing to the karaoke version here.

- Hi, I'm Donna Stone and I'm auditioning for Holly
- Hey, ah... my name is Mickey Stevenson ...
- ... and I'm here to audition for the role of Mateo
- I'm Sarah Forest, auditioning for Holly

My love is on the line
My love is on the line
My love is on the line
My love is on the line...

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal

A little late for all the things you didn't say
I'm not sad for you
But I'm sad for all the time I had to waste
'Cause I learned the truth
Your heart is in a place I no longer wanna be
I knew there'd come a day
I'd set you free
'Cause I'm sick and tired
Of always being sick and tired

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal


Your love isn't fair
You live in a world where you didn't listen
And you didn't care
So I'm floating
I’m floating on air

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal


No warning of such a sad song
Of broken hearts
My dreams of fairy tales and fantasies, oh
Were torn apart, oh
I lost my peace of mind
Somewhere along the way
I knew there'd come a time
You'd hear me say
I'm sick and tired
of always being sick and tired

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal


Your love isn't fair
You live in a world where you didn't listen
And you didn't care
So I'm floating
I’m floating on air

My love is on the line
My love is on the line
My love is on the line
My love is on the line

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal
Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal


My love is on the line, my love

It's over

Your love isn't fair
I said, you live in a world where you didn't listen
And you didn't care
So I'm floating
I’m Floating on air

Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal...

Your love isn't fair
You live in a world where you didn't listen
And you didn't care
So I'm floating
I’m Floating on air

Yeah, they don't wanna hire me
Blondes are out Brunettes are in..

AUDITIONING= /ɔ:dɪʃənɪŋ/ An audition is a trial performance, as by an actor, dancer, or musician, to demonstrate suitability or skill. The verb "to audition" is to perform that trial, to act as a test.

The man sings in Punjabi Language 'Dil La Liya Be-parvah dey naal'. This means 'I gave my heart to someone who does not care'.

MY LOVE IS ON THE LINE= if something is on the line it is at risk. For instance, if you say "my job is on the line", that means that your job is at risk (right on the line separating I-have-a-job from I-don’t-have-a-job). So when she says "my love is on the line", she’s talking about the same risky situation. It means that she hasn’t decided yet, but she very probably will stop loving him.

WANNA= want to

SET YOU FREE= liberate you, let you go

'CAUSE= because

I’M SICK AND TIRED= If you are sick and tired of something, you are really fed up with something, you don't want it anymore. You can say "I'm tired of this music" or "I'm tired of telling you to hurry up", but it is more emphatic to say "I'm sick and tired of telling you to hurry up" (that sounds like you are angry and can't take it anymore)

FAIR= correct, proper,  just (from justice)

I’M FLOATING ON AIR= It is usually a positive feeling, like when you’re in love. But in this song it is a negative feeling. She feels so confused about everything, so undecided, that she doesn’t feel real anymore.

FAIRY TALES= fairies are magical beings. "Fairy tales" is the name we use to refer in general to all those traditional European tales with witches, ogres, princes and princesses, magicians, animals that can speak, etc. Fairy tales always have a good ending.

TORN APART= broken in two pieces

IT'S OVER= This is the end, it finished. To be over is to be finished.

HIRE= If you hire a person, you employ them to work for you.

BLONDS= /blɒndz/ Women with blond hair.

ARE OUT= (They) are not in fashion anymore.

BRUNETTES= /brʊnets/ Women with dark hair.

ARE IN= (They) are in fashion.

Nothing mysterious about this song, everything quite plain and crystal clear: she was in love with a selfish man who didn't care too much about her. She put up with lots of things because she was so in love, but finally she got sick and tired and she's planning to break up (to leave him).
