i could lie to be gentle
we will never be the same
the more adamant i am that it’s the surface
the more the walls begin to flake
one year later and i can finally say that i am completely over you. i think of you often and i think of the time we shared and i smile. but that chapter in my life has closed, and i’m excited to be opening a new one. i want to thank you for the countless of things you’ve taught me about myself and life, things that i am proud to say have made me into who i am today. you are such a sweet, genuine human being and you deserve the best. i’m sorry that i couldn’t be that for you, but i’m confident that someone else can be. i will always carry a little piece of you and keep it close to my heart, and i hope that you do the same.
in my head you tell me things you’ve never said
and i choose to forget
and take the good and leave the rest
oh, the illusion’s getting old.
a love story, from eden to glory
that stretches as deep as it stretches wide
and all of it matters
the centerpiece was shattered and could not be fixed
so it was made perfect
perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon after church.
you kissed my lips and you changed your mind
but its alright
cause the sun is high, the sky is blue and the world is wide
time is never time at all,
you can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth.
and our lives are forever changed,
we will never be the same,
the more you change the less you feel.
When I say that I love you,
I guess what I mean is that I love you like a home I have to leave
And I’m thinkin how nothing can stay
How the sun stains the curtains
And the paint flakes away
But it’ll always be home, till the memory fades
I love you, thanks for the golden age
When I say that I’m grateful
I guess what I mean is how the sapling is grateful for the seed
And I’m thinking how all things change
How the branches grow tall
But our initials remain
I’ll remember you well when the summer is gone
Another year another ring round my bones
When I say that I’ll miss you I guess what I mean is that I’ll miss you
I’ll miss you like autumn misses spring
And I’ve been thinking how everything dies
Like the reds and the blues on their way cross the sky
And the sunset explodes when it knows that it’s time
Before hello, sometimes goodbye
Kiss me once more
Then leave me forever
I know I’m too heavy to hold
Grab both my hands
Kiss me like you mean it
And I’ll never know you again
When I say that I love you I guess what I mean is
There’s a Power that moves everything
And it pushes the river to sea
And it takes all the years and makes regret into peace
you can’t die alone, if you are free
You didn’t mean to, but thank you for showing me
this entire song is my life right now.
when you take it away, do it slowly and easily
make it as if i were dying in my sleep instead of in my life
this album is just….amazing.
calm down, let the world spin round
there ain’t no other place to be
take this lifeline
skin tears, but the flesh will weave back together again
only scars now
i’ve recently been bombarded by an unusual amount of amazing music, so be prepared to be bombarded as well.
i’ve always loved bloc party and i recently found out they had a new album released last year (how did i not know?!). anyways, this is my favorite off their new album, “four.”
