words with no meaning.

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

if your heart was full of love, could you give it up?

How strange to have stumbled upon this haunting music video, part of the official soundtrack from the movie, The Fault In Our Stars, today, of all days.

It’s heartbreakingly beautiful to watch, and perfectly encapsulates the spirit of one of my favorite books…especially with all the quotes from the book being used as a backdrop.

We know full well there’s just time
So is it wrong to toss this line?
If your heart was full of love
Could you give it up?

‘Cause what about, what about angels?
They will come, they will go, make us special

Don’t give me up
Don’t give…
Me up

How unfair, it’s just our luck
Found something real that’s out of touch
But if you’d searched the whole wide world
Would you dare to let it go?

‘Cause what about, what about angels?
They will come, they will go, make us special

Don’t give me up
Don’t give…
Me up

‘Cause what about, what about angels?
They will come, they will go, make us special

It’s not about not about angels, angels

life.

They say bad things (and good), happens in threes. That’s two down, then.

A good friend told me today:

“You’ve gotta live and love every single day like there’s no tomorrow.”

And I was immediately reminded of this quote – an excerpt of my favorite portions forms part of the header to this blog since I started it – it truly encapsulates all that I’m feeling right now.

I’m glad I’ve done almost everything there.

Life’s too short not to.

“As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.”

feels like home.

In the midst of a self-indulgent weekend:

Curled up in bed, watching soppy, romantic movies…

The Notebook – check.
Love Actually – check.
Sweet Home Alabama – check.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days – check.

…while snacking on home-baked salted caramel chocolate chip cookies.

Mmm.

Am totally loving this song from the soundtrack of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days…the lyrics reminds me of how a good hug in the right pair of arms feels like:

Home…=)

Somethin’ in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There’s somethin’ in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I’ve been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you’ve done

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

A window breaks, down a long, dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I’m alright, ’cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see, through the dark there is light

Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I’ve waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I’d love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

Where Am I?
