Friday Five :: I didn’t hear you leave

Here With Me :: Dido
Friday Five

5 Things this song reminds me of:

1. Long nights writing letters I would never send and flipping through the few pictures I had of him. There was music always playing, a collection of about 12 songs, that I kept repeating, over and over, like that echo of regret that pulsed just under my skin – you had always been the one that got away.

2. The ocean, and long drives with a very young Julia in tow, music always playing. We would usually end up at the Ferry, getting out first to take a ride on the Ferris Wheel, or duck into the old photo booth. I have so many of those small pictures of the two of us, of Mother and Daughter.

3. Watching episodes of Roswell in bed together, take-out Chinese food and us being okay for a little while, as an us, in the very late 90’s – before we got married.

4. The desert in the middle of the night, driving alone, with that ever present mix of uncertainty and hope flowing through me.

5. How much I still really love the No Angel album.
