“I’m sorry, but I want to break up with you.”
But I’m only human.
And I bleed when I fall down.
I’m only human.
And I crash and I break down.
Your words in my head, knives in my heart, you build me up and then I fall down.
I’m only human.
-Human, Christina Perri
You said you hate my suffering
And you understood
And you’d take care of me.
You’d always be there…
Well, where are you now?
“First you hug her, and then you roll her over to her side of the bed, and then you roll away. Hug for her… roll for you.”
“Hold out for the ones you know will love you.”
-Dark Come Soon, Tegan & Sara
There was once a very lovely, very frightened girl. She lived alone except for a nameless cat.
-Breakfast at Tiffany’s
“I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you.”
-Poison & Wine, The Civil Wars
When a good man and a good woman, can’t find the good in each other. Then a good man and a good woman, will bring out the worst in each other, the bad in each other.”
-The Bad in Each Other, Rilo Kiley
It’s a man’s job to respect women but it’s a woman’s job to give him something to respect.
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride, it’s self-respect. Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for less than what you deserve.
“So, it’s not gonna be easy.
It’s gonna be really hard.
We’re gonna have to work at this every day,
but I want to do that because I want you.
I want all of you.
I need to know I can still make Explosions…
On the day you wake up needing somebody
And you’ve learned,
It’s okay to be afraid…
But it will never be the same.”
-Explosions, Ellie Goulding.
“Say something I’m giving up on you.
I’ll be the one if you want me to.
Anywhere, I would have followed you.
Say something I’m giving up on you.”
-Say Something, A Great Big World
“I don’t know how it is you are so familiar to me- or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before- in another time, a different- some other existence.”
