Welcome to the 3rd Ear Dictionary. The language may not translate well in the ‘real’ world but is essential in the 3rd Ear World. First official entry is Broke Boaster.
A lyric about a failed relationship from the 3rd Ear Wordz vault.
“I’ve had enough. I’m sick and tired of you taking me for granted.
Now I’m toughening up, cutting the ties that keep us banded.
Guys like you are too selfish, caught up in your own game.
Always promising changes, yet things remain the same.
Well I’ve tried, given you all that I could.
You fail to recognise how I feel.
And telling me you’re the one who’s been misunderstood.
You just don’t know when you’ve got something good.
So believe me cause this time it’s true.
I’m giving up on you.
Lost count of the times I had your back.
Whilst you were cheating behind mine.
Gave up on my dreams only for you to treat me so blatantly unkind
Oh why! Tell me one time that I ever did you wrong?
I’ve been such a fool to put up with you so long.
You used to love me, hold me, be there for me baby.
Now you walk over me, crush my pride and say that you care for me baby.
Well no more. I’m tired of being your fool.
Believe me boy, I’m giving up on you.
Now my eyes are open and I can see through the haze.
When I see you on the street, I’ll be looking the other way.
Cause I don’t want to see the tears in your eyes,
Or hear about how you’re hurting inside.
Because I know its all lies.
How many times do you want to throw your love on me?
Then when I don’t live up to your expectations, take it back from me.
I’m worth more than the drama you put me through.
Believe me boy, I’m giving up on you.”

This reflection comes from something TV Judge, Judy Sheindlin says very often on her show, and it’s true. If something somebody tells you makes no logical sense, it’s most likely to be bullshit.
Recently, many things have been told/explained/fed to me that don’t make no sense at all. Am I stupid? Paranoid maybe? Or is my life just one senseless lie?

I came up with this quote after seeing some ruthless actions from the family and friends of a dear person I once knew.
A short introduction into 3rd Ear Girls new project ‘Stand Out Memories’. A deconstructed memoir of a colourful life, the struggles, the pain, the influences and a lot of naughtiness.
As a writer (struggling) and someone who has gone through a rollercoaster of experiences and emotions in life, people often tell me that I should write an autobiography… If I could write the whole truth and nothing but, I probably would. However, I’m loyal and discreet to those who I regard as ‘my fam’ in life and telling the whole truth could upset people I don’t want to hurt or expose those who’ve put a past mistake to bed and have moved on.
Sharing some of my Stand Out Memories gives me the chance to tell some unforgettable and cherished stories and pay tribute to the wonderful people who I’ve come across in life. I can also shake off some bad memories of the many villains I’ve had to endure along the way. I’m just changing a few names, settings and dates whilst the core of the story remains the truth.
The theme of my Stand Out Memories is aptly labelled, Chaos And Disorder, because even in the most tranquil and happiest moments in life, there’s always some chaos and disorder in the mix. Chaos and Disorder is also the title of a song written by my favourite musician, the late Prince Rogers Nelson.
“ I’m just a no-name reporter
I wish I had nothin’ to say
Looking through my new camcorder
Tryna find a crime that pays…
I get hit by mortars, everywhere I go I’m loitering
Chaos and disorder ruining my world today ”
Chaos and Disorder – Prince (1996) NPG Records
There’s no chronological structure or rule of narrative, I will just write as I feel, when I feel it. I’ve always struggled when it comes to writing about myself, but I’m enjoying this project so far. I hope you will enjoy reading it.

This self-loathing lyric was written at a bad period in my life. Even though you’re free, have you ever felt trapped, not only in love, but in friendships or by hurtful family members? You can see all the wrongs, but to avoid further drama, you don’t say nothing. You stop standing up for yourself and let the hurt roll whilst you’re hurting badly inside.
Must’ve been born with pussy written on my forehead
My only explanation for believing in all the things you said
Thought you loved me but I’m just a fool
Cuz I’m stupid me
I’ve let you see me cry 2 many a time
Let you play silly games with my mind
Why I let you do this I just don’t know
The doors wide open but I don’t wanna go
Cuz I’m stupid me
CHORUS: You put me down, you mess around
Spread the word all over town
“That girls stupid”
Break my heart and make me cry
Tell me anything cuz I’ll believe your lies
Cuz I’m stupid. Stupid motherfuckin me
Rejections something I’m kind of getting used too
Cuz if i’m waiting 4 affection, I ain’t getting it from you
You say you love me when you run out of honey
My emotions you walk all over. Ha Ha so funny!
Cuz i’m stupid me (CHORUS)
Why do I let you hurt me?
Why do I let you make me cry?
I know it’s wrong but I let you carry on
Why, oh why! Oh why! Cuz i’m stupid me

A relationship broken down. The woman has given it her all but isn’t getting much of a response from her man. Does she fight for love or should she walk away from it? What is she supposed to do?
You know how I feel for you
So why d’ya keep trying to make me prove
What’s perfectly clear
Pushing me away, double siding me
Is only gonna make me disappear
There’s only so much I can take
Damn it! I got feelings too
Wanna share my dreams with you
But you’re making it so hard for me
So hard for me
So what am I supposed to do?
It’s fair to say, I’ve gotta share the blame
Trying to steer you from the reality and pain
Tried to paint a perfect picture fantasy
Even though we were suffering in the misery
But please, you must always remember
Right or wrong I’ve always been there for ya
From January through to December
Stood there strong by your side
Trying to guide you through life
Now you’re pushing me, fighting me
Double siding me
After all that we’ve been through
Be honest with yourself
You know I’d never do that to you
So tell me what am I supposed to do?
I don’t wanna see you in misery
I don’t wanna see you in pain
But if it means a replay of all the hell we’ve been through
Then I don’t wanna see you again
You see trust means a lot to me
And you’ve broken mine too many times
Then you say you realise
And tell me you wanna give our relationship another try
But how do I know that you’re not just spinning another lie
I have feelings for you and always will do
But when you’re fighting me, double siding me. Tell me
What am I supposed to do?
