If I could, baby, I’d give you my world :: Under the Covers

Go Your Own Way (live) :: Lissie There were signs from the start that said turn back, but I pushed past them anyway, led by my heart and my hopeless optimism, both ever fatal flaws of mine. Each time I fall I think that I will not get beat up and bruised and lost in the tumble and toss of love, and each time I end up being wrong. A close friend of mine says when I love I love big and bold and bleeding, putting myself out so far that my veins and bones show, and that when there … Continue reading If I could, baby, I’d give you my world :: Under the Covers

Music is as necessary … Continue reading Must beat the hell out of being alive :: video of the day

Rose tint my world :: song of the day

The safety net collapsed, ripped apart, a worn than discarded cap and gown leaving me exposed and naked. It was time to go on from the one year of my adolescence that had healed more than harmed. I wanted to maintain the freedom I felt in that last year and carry it with me. Change, change, change, oh, how I relished it, despised it, feared it, and caressed it.
