This week's LSS is from one of my favorite artisits - Kelly Clarkson.
"Because of You" is a song recorded by American pop singer Kelly Clarkson for her second studio album, Breakaway (2004). via
Clarkson originally wrote "Because of You" when she was 16 years old to cope with the emotional distress caused by her parents' divorce.
Lyrically, "Because of You" explores the pain of a deteriorating relationship. Critics noted that the lyrics are Clarkson's ode to her father.
I can so relate to this song. If Dance with My Father is for Momcy, this is probably my song dedicated to Popcy.
My favorite lines?
The song's accompanying music video was directed by Vadim Perelman. Clarkson wrote the treatment for the video herself in order to reflect the pain that she felt due to her parents' divorce. The video's plot centers on Clarkson engaging in a heated argument with her husband in front of her child before realizing that she was repeating her parents' mistake.
Here's the lyrics.
