    I really like this song. She is right you can do damage. Damaged people damage other people and that is not fair or right. She really hit on the head with this song. Some people missed what she is telling them.

    H.E.R’s Damage speaks to how one may become vulnerable, due to their frailties. When one becomes vulnerable, that’s the truest form openness, but be careful, as that state lends itself to being manipulated

    I love this song. It means to me that in a relationship that is supposed to be built on trust and love, that continued slip ups can cause permanent damage to that love. Once that love is damaged, the person who was the recipient of that love never looks the same in the other person’s eyes.
