The Anthems For People (Not Places)









If life was a song, would you spend most of it worrying about how it ended?

If life was a song, would there be meaning in the sound?

If life was a song, would you, please, sing it with me?

I wouldnt mind singing it, as long as its a happy song, if my life was a song, it would be the song that everytime you listen to it, you cry....

A song is only 3 minutes long. If life was that long I wouldn't worry. I know some insects only live a couple of weeks. I don't think they worry cos they never have time to regret their actions, they don't think... They just do.
With a long life, you have the potential to achieve something amazing, or wait for something great to happen or you can struggle to survive, hope to love and the longer you struggle, the more hopeless you can become.
Maybe that's another hidden dimension why love hurts and why people always pretend long term relationships are rivers of unending happiness.
I just miss the intimacy...

Many of the most beautiful songs never end. Not because they last forever, but because they were never sung.

Hey. This is the first time I write to you despite I've been reading you for a long time. Weekly more or less since 2007. Since the very first time I've been in love with the way you write but I didn't understand the real meaning that your words had .

I was fifteen and did not understand many of the things you wrote here, then I started dating and gradually understand and suddenly start to get that this is more tha a buch of cute words. One day one of your posts you made me realize how much I was hurting another person and how much I was hurting myself so I left and since then I've been alone. That because of you, and I'm not trying to blame you. Actually I really appreciate it. Thanks to you I am a much more selective, although many times I feel alone, also thanks to you I became much more realistic and I'm not waiting for a prince charming but for a person that would rock my world in their own rare and inexplicable way as "she" did you.

I don't really know if ur going to read this but I just felt like telling you. Hope you are great and hope you to keep writing this amazing blog.

And about this.. I wouldn't sing it but, I would definitely dance with you

I went a year without singing once. And then I found my voice again, but have no one to sing with. It's not all bad, though. Sometimes you need to sing solo to soar.

JayThom said...

wow, this is so me right now.

jac y. said...

Yes. And I'd sing it back to you.

If music be the food of love, play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.That strain again! it had a dying fall: O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound. That breathes upon a bank of violets, Stealing and giving odour! William Shakespeare, "Twelfth Night", Act 1 scene 1 Greatest English dramatist & poet (1564 - 1616)

your life is a song as it is the way the planets move around the Sun, it is all about harmony

Used to be one of the rotten ones, and I liked you for that
Now you're all gone got your make-up on and you're not coming back

Oh.. the last bit. <3

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away
- Aerosmith, Dream On

My greatest wish for this year is to sing with you, at least once. Just the two of us. No one else.

Life is many songs all blended in harmony. I sing it and dance it everyday with you.

Music in the language of angels, and love is the purest gift from God, so how dare you to think that I wouldn't Dude!
