“Oh simple thing, where have you gone? I’m getting old and I need something to rely on. So tell me, when you gonna let me in? I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin. And if you have a minute, why don’t we go talk about it somewhere only we know? This could be the end of everything, so why don’t we go somewhere only we know?” — Keane, Somewhere...
“Love is not proud. Love does not boast. Love in the end, matters the most. Love does not run. Love does not hide. Love does not keep locked inside. Love is a river that flows through. And love never fails you.” — Brandon Heath, Love Never Fails
Don’t feel stupid if you don’t like what everyone else pretends to love.– Emma Watson (via letusbeinfinite)
Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to...– Barbara Kingsolver (via letusbeinfinite)
Dried pineapple is one of my favorite things. Not even joking.
“You make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed, sing like a bird dizzy in my head, spin like a record crazy on a Sunday night. You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe, shine like gold, buzz like a bee. Just the thought of you can drive me wild. Oh, you make me smile.” — Uncle Kracker, Smile
“So honey, let me sing you a song. And listen to my words as they come out wrong, but don’t run away, run away this time. And honey, let me look in your eyes - you can open them one at a time, but don’t look away, look away this time. Oh, I’m walking on a wire cause you’re all I want now. So don’t feed me to the fire and I won’t let you down. And please...
“This is looking like a contest of who can act like they care less, but I liked it better when you were on my side. The battle’s in your hands now, but I would lay my armor down if you said you’d rather love than fight. So many things that you wish I knew, but the story of us might be ending soon. Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room and we’re not speaking....
“If I could go back now, I wouldn’t change a thing. Oh, it feels so good to say… Guess we made it this far, guess we’re doing alright. Looks like we made it out alive. Yeah, we made our mistakes, but we followed our hearts, even though we drift apart. For always, forever, weathered yellow still frames in my head. For always, forever.” — Every Avenue, For...
“You’re inches from my fingertips. I’ve come as close as I can get. I’m reaching, but the rest is up to you. Cause I don’t ever wanna miss being here with you like this. I’m trying, but it’s all that I can do. I’m reaching, but the rest is up to you.” — Jason Reeves, Reaching
“City lights as far as the eye can see. You and I - we will live differently. With our hearts in our hands like loaded guns, we’re taking a chance - we’re the lucky ones. This moment is yours, this moment is mine. And we’re gonna be fine.” — Brendan James, The Lucky Ones
“I know you want me to see, don’t lie to me. So why you gotta go be so shy to me? I ain’t buying the false anxiety - let your fortress fall. What is it gonna take to get you there? If it was money, you’d be a millionaire. All alone in a leather swivel chair, counting stacks of gold. Oh, you are my Manhattan from the sky. You look so neat and tidy when I’m way up...
“If time came to an end today and we left too many things to say, if we could turn it back, what would we want to change? Now’s the time to take a chance, come on, we’ve gotta make a stand. What have we got to lose? The choice is in our hands. And we can find a way to to anything if we try to… Live like there’s no tomorrow. Love like it’s all that we know....
“So many lines we tried to draw - anything there to break the fall. Even on the way down, even on the way down. You were the one who always said, “Don’t let the doubts go to your head.” Even on the way down, even on the way down. It’s out of my hands, breaking your heart. Letting you go, and it’s my fault. Fooling ourselves - there’s no easy way out....
“I am no prince, I am no saint, I am not anyone’s wildest dream - but I will stand behind and be someone to fall back on.” “I’ll be the one who waits and for as long as you let me, I will be the one you need. I’ll be someone to fall back on” — Aly Michalka, Someone To Fall Back On
“And this is me praying that this was the very first page, not where the storyline ends. My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again. These are the words I held back as I was leaving too soon. I was enchanted to meet you. Please don’t be in love with someone else. Please don’t have somebody waiting on you…” — Taylor Swift, Enchanted
There comes a point where you just love someone. Not because they’re good, or...– (via letusbeinfinite)

“So I’ll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep. And I’ll feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe. And I’ll keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are - hope it’s nice where you are. And I hope the sun shines, and it’s a beautiful day. And something reminds you you wish you had stayed. You can plan for a change in...
I study best with note cards. Bring it AP Calculus exam.
Sixteen is my favorite number.
“You are an expert at sorry and keeping the lines blurry, and never impressed by me acing your tests. All the girls that you’ve run dry have tired lifeless eyes cause you’ve burnt them out. But I took your matches before fire could catch me, so don’t look now—I’m shining like fireworks over your sad empty town.” — Taylor Swift, Dear John
I have an issue with having an odd number of posts, so I always have to post in two’s.
“I want it to be like that again - like the first time. Will it ever be like that again? Like the first time, like a happy accident. Love is so unexpected, can’t just go out and get it. Love is so unexpected, just like a happy accident.” — Jason Reeves, Happy Accident
Number of things I’ve written about you or with you in mind: 16
Plugging in for missing pieces Trying to fill the empty holes with simple fixes Allowing temporary solutions Though complex situtations remain. Incorrect calculations surface An operator error The answer is more than it seems. And when the substitutions fall away A lone variable will stay Equation unsatisfied Unsolved A blank.
Claire: Now, would you quit trying to break up with me? You know, you’re always trying to break up with me and we’re not even together. Drew: I know…we’re not? Claire: Of course not. We’re the substitute people, remember? Elizabethtown
Claire: …but that’s what they say. Drew: That’s what they say, huh? Claire: Yes, that’s what they say. Drew: I’ve always wondered this. Who are “they”? Claire: You know - “them.” Drew: “Them.” Claire: The inimitable collective “them.” Drew: And who says we’re supposed to listen to them? Claire: They do! ...
I love finding things in books
You know, like a reminder, a note to a past reader, a forgotten bookmark. As I began Wuthering Heights this afternoon, a small scrap of yellow paper fluttered out from somewhere in the middle of the book. Typed in small print: “At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be...
“Cause it’s not over, til it’s over. Every ending’s a new beginning - one more chance to get it right, one more chance to get it wrong. And it’s not over, til it’s over. Sometimes nowhere leads to somewhere. And it starts again, yeah, it all starts again - in the end. And it’s such a scary place to be…” — Jason Reeves, The End
There’s a peace I’ve come to know, though my heart and flesh may fail. There’s an anchor for my soul - I can say it is well. Jesus has overcome and the grave is overwhelmed. The victory is won! He is risen from the dead. And I will rise when He calls my name. No more sorrow, nor more pain. I will rise on eagle’s wings. Before my God, fall on my knees…and rise. I...
“Drinking old cheap bottles of wine, sit talking up all night, saying things we haven’t for a while. We’re smiling, but we’re close to tears. Even after all these years, we just now got the feeling that we’re meeting for the first time.” — The Script, For the First Time
“We’re tryin to be lazy, the journey is perfect, the pace is so crazy, the race is so worth it. I will be with you - we’ll do this together…always together. Life has moments hard to describe, feeling great and feeling alive, never coming down from this mountain we’re on. Always knowing we’re gonna be fine, feeling great and feeling alive, never coming down...

High five for awesome kite flying adventures! Complete with: string burn mysterious red bumps forward (and backward) somersaults (not barrel rolls) down (and up) the hill jumping ditches random bubbles in the middle of the river avoiding the radioactive waters of said river Smelling terrible and being completely wind-blown? Priceless.
