When you wrote it :: Two-tune Saturday

And in your heart,
you know it to be true,
you know what you gotta do.
They all depend on you,
and you already know.
Yeah,
you already know how this will end.”

How it Ends :: DeVotchKa

Sometimes the weight of the world, of expectation, and of love, makes it all so hard to breathe. Fate takes your hand and tries to lead the way, yet we have that human instinct to fight for change, to push forward for dreams, fighting until the bloody and bruised end. And, to be honest, I really don’t know which is right, and which is wrong, in this kind of battle. We all may think we know how it will end. I think it is a foolish trick of denial, and a desperate grasp for control, that makes us say we saw it coming, the inevitable ending, but do any of us really know? I like to believe that we can turn our own pages differently, if we choose to, that we can do final rewrites at the last moments, a quick change before the curtain rises for that final scene. I like to think we all author our own stories, endings included, but do we?

So, like a ghost in the snow,
I’m getting ready to go,
’cause baby, that’s all I know –
how to open the door.
And though the exit is crude,
it saves me coming unglued,
for when you’re not in the mood,
for the gloves,
and the canvas floor.”
