Here are some lyrics that have been stuck in my head lately. I can't say it any better than these.
"I know the last page so well I can't read the first
So I just don't start
It's getting worse
I wanna know what it's like
On the inside of love
I'm standing at the gates
I see the beauty above
I can't find my way in
I try again and again
Must be a different view
To be a 'me' with a 'you'."
"Inside of Love" by Nada Surf
"Not for me the happy home
Though it sometimes touches me
For the likes of such as me
It's a fine, fine life!"
"It's a Fine Life", Oliver!
"I want a moment to be real
Want to touch things I can't feel
Want to hold on and feel I belong
Why does the world want me to change?
They're the ones who stay the same
They can't see me
But I'm still here."
"I'm Still Here" by Johnny Rzeznik
"I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more."
"A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri
Pretty much all of "The A-Team" by Ed Sheeran
"All the odds are in my favor
Something's bound to begin
It's gotta happen
Maybe this time
Maybe this time I'll win!"
"Maybe This Time", Cabaret
As is probably apparent, it's been an unusually melancholy week.
