If you must leave, leave as though fire burns under your feet.
If you must speak, speak every word as though it were unique
If you must die, sweetheart, die knowing your life was my life’s best part.
If you must fight, fight with yourself and your thoughts in the night.
If you must work, work to leave some part of you on this earth.
If you must live, darling one, just live.
—Keaton Henson - You (via annemichelle)
Keaton Henson - Lying To You
I’m just as damn disappointed as you,
Only I just do better to hide it.
And the one thing that keeps me from falling for you,
Is I’m truly alone and I like it.
As we lie in bed I feel lonely,
Though we’re young, I feel eighty years old.
And your arms around me are keeping me warm.
But baby, I’m still feeling cold.
Robert Redford & Jane Fonda at the set of "Barefoot in the Park" (1967)
I’d be more ok if people stopped asking me if I was ok
Seriously going to bludgeon the next person who asks
People shouldn’t have to appear always, you know, stable and content, because people aren’t always stable and content. And it makes it harder, and it makes us as a majority more unstable and more discontented because we don’t have the freedom to express all of these darker sides of our emotions. Because we’re supposed to keep everything very, you know, friendly and polite and appropriate all the time. And I think that every emotion is appropriate whenever it arises.
Oh, when I lift you up you feel/
Like a hundred times yourself/
I wish everybody knew/
What’s so great about you/
Oh, but your love is such a swamp/
You’re the only thing I want/
And I said I wouldn’t cry about it/
This is the last time/
This is the last time.
I’m quite all right, I get by just fine,
I’m not depressed, not most of the time,
It’s just the fun stuff is much less fun without you.
