beach house - take care

here it is

"It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing.

Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that it’s over, that I’ll never see him again like this… well yes, I’ll bump into him, we’ll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we’ll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drink up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well.

There’s a moment in life where you can’t recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else’s kisses."

the bobby fuller four - let her dance

we could connect or we could not

i came home last night to find you in the bath. walked in to a humidifier. you've got your drinks, your smokes, you've got your memories all stored up in the brain box that quietly scans each piece of data, compresses, stores, with reassuring hum and beep. you've got these thoughts you take out and look at when it's been time enough, when time enough has passed. sometimes i come in to where you're not. it's not you there, or if it is, it's a you i never met, being so young whenever it was. you tell me, i was crazy.
you tell me, i was crazy about her.

train, train, come and gone

your trick pony, he don't know me, he don't know me at all.

gold and warm

if only! i left the house today wearing two pairs of socks, tights, leggings, a dress, two sweaters and a coat, hat, scarf, etc. sigh. this is how it begins... soon i won't be able to go outside without feeling like my face is going to fall off with cold. i'd enjoy winter a lot more if i didn't have to go out into it so much.

in the meantime, however, i've also put on a seasonally inappropriate song from benjamin davis and sebastien schultz, aka bad veins. i'll always hold dear the time that i've spent here. i want to hear your heart beating loud. and i want to see you stand up proud. as we go where sunlight is gold and warm.
