Jann Arden - Insensitive - Lyrics

Title: Insensitive
Performed by: Jann Arden
Written By: Anne Loree

"Insensitive", released as the second single from Jann Arden's 1994 album, Living Under June, remains by far Arden's most successful single to date outside of Canada (where it hit #1 on the RPM 100 national singles chart on January 30, 1995 & remained there for 3 weeks), peaking at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 (US) and also reaching Top Ten on Billboard's Adult Contemporary charts.

The song's US success was assisted by its presence in the film Bed of Roses. Although Bed of Roses was not a major success, the video for "Insensitive" was aired on an episode of Entertainment Tonight on which the film had been promoted. Even before its Canadian chart success, "Insensitive" had accorded Arden a hit in Italy, reaching #14 in December 1994 following its use as a jingle in a TV ad campaign for a brand of jeans. "Insensitive" reached #1 on the Australian charts in 1995/96 and also charted in New Zealand at #44 and the UK at #40. At the Juno Awards of 1996 "Insensitive" was named Single of the Year.

"Insensitive" was also included on Arden's 2001 greatest hits album, Greatest Hurts, in both the original and live versions.

The success of "Insensitive" propelled Arden to winning the Juno Awards 1995 Female Artist of the Year.

The writer, Anne Loree, recalls writing "Insensitive":
"I sat down at my electric piano in the basement of a rented house I shared with four roommates, broke and broken hearted, full of pain and angst, and wrote 'Insensitive'. It took me probably less than half an hour and I walked away feeling much better for it and much hipper to Prince Charmings who aren't really into you."

Lyrics

How do you cool your lips, after a summer's kiss
How do you rid the sweat, after the body bliss

How do you turn your eyes, from the romantic glare
How do you block the sound, of a voice you'd know anywhere

I really should have known by the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, the casual good-byes

By the chill in your embrace, the expression on your face
That told me maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be... insensitive

How do you numb your skin, after the warmest touch
How do you slow your blood, after the body rush

How do you free your soul, after you've found a friend
How do you teach your heart, it's a crime to fall in love again

Oh, you probably won't remember me, it's probably ancient history
I'm one of the chosen few who went ahead and fell for you

I'm out of vogue, I'm out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much

I thought that you might have, some advice to give
On how to be... insensitive

I really should have known by the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, the casual good-byes

By the chill in your embrace, the expression on your face
That told me maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be... insensitive

Come to me...
Come to me...
Come to me...
