Allen Centeno | Intoxicated

The inertia of love is the only thing that makes you go forth even though you know that it is not working anymore…

 

This is Allen Centeno’s “Intoxicated”.  A song about a toxic relationship.  It tells the story of his past relationship where his ex-boyfriend cheats on him on speed dating apps like “Tinder”.  The funny thing was that his ex, even though caught in the act, thought cheating didn’t mean anything and couldn’t even realize that what he was doing was hurtful and was destroying Allen’s trust for him.

Maybe out of being a martyr, out of love or just out of mere stupidity, even after all the lies, Allen, frustrated, angry but so in love, couldn’t let go of him.  This track is the prelude of the second single “How To Forget A Fucker” where the story revolves on the difficulty on how to get over an ex even though that person broke your heart into million pieces.

 

Here are the lyrics:

Intoxicated

1.

You used to bring so much love at making me feel nice

That kind of lust was so awesome you’re making me feel right

Now you’re intoxicating, yeah

You were so blind you couldn’t see what was missing in my life

Mouth was so dry you couldn’t kiss me right, left me hanging on my side

Now you’re intoxicating, yeah

 

Chorus

You made me see what was lacking in me

You feed me poison so I can’t escape the trap that you built

I’m not naive, bitch, don’t call me “baby”

Just keep your Tinder on and maybe you’ll find just what you need

What’s up with me? I can’t seem to break free

Intoxicating, suffocating, gosh, you’re hurting my brain

Hey

 

2.

You think that I’m privileged ’cause you’re staying by my side

Like the hundred boys that you’re fucking then you look into my eyes

Now I’m intoxicated, yeah

You sound so dumb you’re so convinced what you did wasn’t so bad

But I guess that I’m just stupid I’m still falling for your lies

Now I’m intoxicated, yeah

 

Chorus

You made me see what was lacking in me

You feed me poison so I can’t escape the trap that you built

I’m not naive, bitch, don’t call me “baby”

Just keep your Tinder on and maybe you’ll find just what you need

What’s up with me? I can’t seem to break free

Intoxicating, suffocating, gosh, you’re hurting my brain

Hey

 

3.

You used to bring so much love at making me feel nice

That kind of lust was so awesome you’re making me right

Now you’re intoxicating, yeah

 

Chorus

You made me see what was lacking in me

You feed me poison so I can’t escape the trap that you built

I’m not naive, bitch, don’t call me “baby”

Just keep your Tinder on and maybe you’ll find just what you need

What’s up with me? I can’t seem to break free

Intoxicating, suffocating, gosh, you’re hurting my brain

Hey

 

 

Allen Centeno | How To Forget A Fucker

Allen Centeno – How To Forget A Fucker

This is a song about a break-up, a broken heart…

But this is not your typical heart-break song.  I did not intend to show that I got my heart pierced, slashed and shattered then heal, be happy and move on.  No.  That’s the typical bullshit.

This song shows how I was suffering and hurting and not being able to get up and cease to be stronger.  The agony of love is not like any other.  When you lose someone you love, either real or metaphorical death, it scars your very existence.  You fail to see what’s good about anything.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  Perhaps, it’s true in many cases.  Sometimes, though, what doesn’t kill you makes you suffer for a very long time.

 

“How To Forget A Fucker”

(verse 1)

I thought that staying with you could be so damn cool

You’ve given me up

You said you would not let me down but still, I’m on the ground

Stuck in the mud

(hook)

I wanted to forget the pain

And I’ve been looking for creative ways to fuck up this game

Been hoping to find who’s to blame

While I’ve been hurting for a decade just to forget your name

Fucker

(verse 2)

You said you would not get away; that you’d stay in the flames

But you let me burn

Just like when you fucked up my world ‘cause you were getting so bored

I should have known

(hook)

I wanted to forget the pain

And I’ve been looking for creative ways to fuck up this game

Been hoping to find who’s to blame

While I’ve been hurting for a decade just to forget your name

Fucker

(bridge)

I’ve been hurting myself just to forget your face

I’ve been standing alone just to learn my mistake

(pre-hook)

I wanted to forget the pain

And I’ve been looking for creative ways to fuck up this game

(hook)

I wanted to forget the pain

And I’ve been looking for creative ways to fuck up this game

Been hoping to find who’s to blame

While I’ve been hurting for a decade just to forget your name

Fucker

(outro)

Been hoping to find who’s to blame

While I’ve been hurting for a decade just to forget your name

Fucker
