Peter Gabriel, “In Your Eyes”, Live 1993, because

"Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are…”

She deserves better, you say. I say: You’re a goddamn coward. What she deserves is an actual person she can connect with. She deserves you, or me or the entire world; she deserves someone achingly real and honest. She deserves a human being equally raw to pursue her and love her and, perhaps, destroy her emotionally, but she deserves all that as well. She doesn’t deserve anyone’s sugary fairytale. She deserves to float freely, with you, or me, or the world, into the very depths of her own psychosynthesis. She deserves to explore the meaning of the word "intimacy", with someone beside her that will care regardless. She fucking deserves all of it. So, pluck up the courage and be with her or leave her in peace but don’t you dare "sell" her your own "inadequacy" as a lie so that, again, you manage to comfort your conscience and eventually come to feel that you love her exactly because you’re letting her go. Because, darling, that’s bullshit. That’s only your own little self-created lie laying behind a much bigger lie; it’s not even properly concealed within itself, you fucking idiot.”
“There is more to life than meets the eye. Never allow what you are looking at determine what you believe. Never allow what you can see with your eyes lure you into the belief that there is nothing more. Always allow your spiritual eyes to take you beneath the surface.”

#TBT….I was working out this morning and had this song on my MP3 player and I found myself jamming because I started remembering ”those special times, that just go on and on, In the back of my mind.”

Aja Monet x What I’ve Learned

"I know books can make you disappear..

I like my hair down more than when it’s all pinned up..

I know we all get lonely..

Longing can be confused for love..

I know if I jumped off a building, I wouldn’t fly. I know someone who tried..

I know a casket is expensive..

I know you can be more than one person at the same time..

I know insanity sometimes means coping..

I know a Holy Ghost when I see one..

I know prayer is about speaking things into existence..

I know I don’t know very much outside of what I know.”
