“Every once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life…

…love gives us a fairy tale.”

Listen I know it’s been hard
You know it’s no different for me
We’re less than a zero-sum game now
And baby, we both know that’s not how it’s supposed to be

The writing’s on the wall
It seems like forever
Since we had a good day
The writing’s on the wall

But I, just want to get you high tonight
I just want to see some pleasure in your eyes
Some pleasure in your eyes

I go too high, and you go too cold
And we both fall apart
Then you bring your mind, to rest against mine
But the mind has no say on affairs of the heart

The writing’s on the wall
It seems like forever
Since we had a good day
The writing’s on the wall

But I, just want to get you high tonight
I just want to see some pleasure in your eyes
Some pleasure in your eyes

Then you bring your mind, to rest against mine
But the mind has no say on affairs of the heart

I, just want to get you high
Just want to get you high
Just want to get you high
Even if it’s the last thing we do together

Even if it’s the last thing we do together

I’ve long heard friends rave about Haruki Murakami’s books, yet never felt inclined to pick up a copy whenever I’m at the bookstore. But after stumbling across some quotes from his books…

…I think perhaps it’s time to start.

“Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive.”

“But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives.”

“What we seek is some kind of compensation for what we put up with.”

“I was always attracted not by some quantifiable, external beauty, but by something deep down, something absolute. Just as some people have a secret love for rainstorms, earthquakes, or blackouts, I liked that certain undefinable something directed my way by members of the opposite sex. For want of a better word, call it magnetism. Like it or not, it’s a kind of power that snares people and reels them in.”

“What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for and to do it so unconsciously.”

“Even chance meetings are the result of karma… Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.”

Now this is a beautiful quote…

There are two reasons why people don’t talk about things;
either it doesn’t mean anything to them,
or it means everything.

words with no meaning.

26 May 2014 § Leave a comment

Beautiful things are waiting to be found at 1am in the morning when sleep is elusive.

Here’s another gem of a song by Birdy:

You’ve been searching
Have you found many things?
Time for learning
Why have I not learnt a thing?

Words with no meaning
Have kept me dreaming
But they don’t tell me anything

All you never say is that you love me so
All I’ll never know is if you want me oh
If only I could look into your mind
Maybe then I’d find a sign
Of all I want to hear you say to me

Are you uncertain?
Or just scared to drop your guard?
Have you been broken?
Are you afraid to show your heart?

Life can be unkind
But only sometimes
You’re giving up before you start

All you never say is that you love me so
All I’ll never know is if you want me oh
If only I could look into your mind
Maybe then I’d find a sign
Of all I want to hear you say to me
To me

All you never say is that you love me so
All I’ll never know is if you want me oh
If only I could look into your mind
Maybe then I’d find a sign
Of all I want to hear you say to me
To me
