life

I'm feeling like this in my life right now:

staying home alone on a Friday
flat on the floor looking back
on old love
or lack thereof
after all the crushes are faded
and all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
get here

searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
when I see you
until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
staying up all night just to write
a love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
could I have missed my chance
and watched you walk away?
oh no way

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
could I have missed my chance
and watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here oh yeah

I'm tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
so hurry up and get here

you'll be so good
you'll be so good for me

(John Mayer "Love Song for No One")

I want to have someone feel this way about me:

sitting here, on this lonely dock
watch the rain play on the ocean top
all the things I feel I need to say
I can't explain in any other way

I need to be bold
need to jump in the cold water
need to grow older with a girl like you
finally see you are naturally
the one to make it so easy
when you show me the truth
yeah, I'd rather be with you
say you want the same thing too

now here's the sun, come to dry the rain
warm my shoulders and relieve my pain
you're the one thing that I'm missing here
with you beside me I no longer fear

I need to be bold
need to jump in the cold water
need to grow older with a girl like you
finally see you are naturally
the one to make it so easy
when you show me the truth
yeah, I'd rather be with you
say you want the same thing too

I could have saved so much time for us
had I seen the way to get to where I am today
you waited on me for so long
so now, listen to me say:

I need to be bold
need to jump in the cold water
need to grow older with a girl like you
finally see you are naturally
the one to make it so easy
when you show me the truth
yeah, I'd rather be with you
say you want the same thing too
say you feel the way I do

(Joshua Radin "I'd Rather Be With You")


And I discovered the lyrics to this song today:

time to tell me the truth
to burden your mouth for what you say
no pieces of paper in the way
cause I can't continue pretending to choose
the opposite sides on which we fall
the loving you laters if at all
no right minds could wrong me this many times

my memory is cruel
I'm queen of attention to details
defending intentions if he fails
until now, he told me her name
it sounded familiar in a way
I could have sworn I'd heard him say it ten thousand times
if only I had been listening

leave unsaid unspoken
eyes wide shut unopened
you and me
always between the lines
between the lines

I thought I, thought I was ready to bleed
that we'd move from the shadows on the wall
and stand in the center of it all
too late two choices to stay or to leave
mine was so easy to uncover
he'd already left with the other
so I've learned to listen through silence

leave unsaid unspoken
eyes wide shut unopened
you and me always be
you and me always be

I tell myself all the words he surely meant to say
I'll talk until the conversation doesn't stay on
wait for me I'm almost ready
when he meant let go

leave unsaid unspoken
eyes wide shut unopened
you and me
always be
you and me
always between the lines


(Sara Bareilles "Between the Lines")

My favorite lines are:

no right minds could wrong me this many times

my memory is cruel
I'm queen of attention to details
defending intentions if he fails

um, yes. I totally know where she is coming from.
