Now I’m pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door.

Tune of the day CXXIII.

Today, when the door opened and I saw you – my breath caught. As sappy as it sounds, I’m completely taken by you. When you come in like that, looking like the incarnation of Holden Caulfield, I can’t help but melt. And, against my better judgement, I revel in it. And you’re just being your lovely, preckly self, oblivious of how you affect me. When you give me that shy smile, you inadvertently feed the flame. Actually, you set me aflame. Whenever you look at me, it sends a wave of heat through my body. I imagine it’s an elevated version of what blushing feels like. I’ve fallen for you. And though I know there’s a big chance that I’ll crash. Hard. I just know that I’ve never felt so alive. And if falling is what it takes for me to live, then let me free fall for the rest of my life. This tune is for you Phreckles. Every single word is for you. Because it really was enchanting to meet you. And it still is. Every fucking time.

(Due to (idiotic) copyrights, I can’t find a version of the song that hasn’t had its pitch changed. It irritates me, so I’m not even bothering. Instead, I’m putting up a cover by the very lovely Meghan Tonjes. I kind of adore her, so check out her YouTube channel. Incredibly talented.)

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonder-struck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

You gave me roses and I left them there to die…

Tune of the day CIV, a song that’s been playing practically every second this weekend. If not in my ear buds, then in my head. It’s kind of perfect in every way.

These days I haven’t been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving
When your birthday passed and I didn’t call
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side and
Realized I loved you in the fall
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye  

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night
And I’d go back to December all the time
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine
I’d go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
I go back to December all the time

Once upon a time, I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye.

We caught on to something…

I borrowed home Fearless, by Taylor Swift, the other day. I previously hadn’t given her a chance because I thought that her songs were a bit too Disney for me but when I had the chance I thought: Eh, what the heck? Might as well give it a shot. And I must say, I found a couple of gems. Sure, some of them seemed a little too…sugary, but honestly, the lyrics hit me so hard that I was able to overlook that. My favourite song was Forever &  Always, but while listening to it, I couldn’t help but feel like it wasn’t reaching its full potential. So I thought I’d surf a bit on the Tube (good ol’ Tube, wink wink) and see if there were any interpretations that fitted me better, and surely, I found this:

Typically, I look down upon this type of American teen rock style (Come on, you know you do too!) but I’ve always had a soft spot for it at the same time. For instance, I’ve always loved the song Kelsey, by Metro Station (I know, Trace Cyrus, ugh) and now I’ve learned to accept it. I think a sign of the fact that I like it more than I think is that I always do that side-to-side move while listening to, or singing, a song like this. I’ve tried to stop sooo many times but it just comes naturally haha, but I’ve learned to embrace it. I do it to like every upbeat Paramore song for instance. Anyways, this song is seriously perfect like this,I love the style of the girl and the boy…totally contradicting, I know. But yeah, this is a really awesome song. And I’ve learned to not judge a genre, just go after that special gut-feeling. So I’ll just shut up and listen. Hah.

So you might as well check out their channel as well, since they’re wicked: lovecommarobot

Oh, and apparently they have a band called Love, Robot. So I’m gonna be cool and support them by pimping them out to my nonexistent readers, link to their myspace below

Love, Robot   <—– Yep, there it is.
