cold coffee and contradictions

the bizzare ramblings of an over active mind

If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time. Love that. So if you have somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety, like myself, and if you happen to be a calm person, you could come up and hug me heart to heart and my heart hopefully would slow to yours. And I just love that idea. Or maybe yours would speed up to mine. But either way, we’ll be there together.

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.
Just live.

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.

I’d be more ok if people stopped asking me if I was ok

Seriously going to bludgeon the next person who asks

There are times when you don’t know yourself. There are times when you don’t want to know yourself. There are times when you want to be what you have never allowed yourself to be before.

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.
