A Six-Word Story

First, love. Then everything becomes lovable.

Quote of the Week

You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

We are on Day 2 of the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge where I was tagged by Sonali. Do check out her blog here.

Today, I’m tagging Mariam, Karen and The_Aestheticspirit.

And my second song is:

100 Years by Five for Fighting

I’m fifteen for a moment
Caught in between ten and twenty
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I’m twenty two for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
I’m thirty three for a moment
Still the man, but you see I’m of age
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I’m forty five for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy, time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
Fifteen I’m all right with you
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty seven is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on
I’m ninety nine for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Twenty two I feel her too
Thirty three you’re on your way
Every day’s a new day
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live.

Well, this song could be interpreted in different ways but no matter how you look at it, there’s a very profound meaning. I probably wouldn’t have cared about this song when I was 15 for I still didn’t have enough context about life yet to understand it well. I understood it quite better and appreciate it a lot more as I grow older and thus became one of my all-time favorites.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Just when I thought I’d only get tagged in “quotes challenges,” I was tagged by Sonali to participate on this — The Three-Day Lyrical Challenge! Thanks a lot, Sonali. I’m delighted to do this challenge and to my readers, do check out her blog here if you haven’t yet.

For today, I’m tagging Elly, LifeOfAmalgation and Sohair.

So I guess, I would just have to choose three of my favorite songs and share each one a day. It’s not very easy to choose which three songs will make the cut but here’s the first one.

All I Ask by Adele 

I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what’s coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don’t wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain’t asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

It’s funny how very much I love this song but hate what it reminds me of at the same time. Anyway, this is a very beautiful but heartbreaking song. I personally think that whatever the reason for the breakup, it’s always better not to end it ugly. I mean, it probably makes the parting easier to bear because the last memories you’ll have of each other are good ones. If only you could create a wonderful memory before it all ends because what if you never love again?

Quote of the Week

I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.
