I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

"I'm tired of everyone here,
I just need some time alone
Before I'm ready to come back home

There's gotta be something else out there for me,
I could feel it in my heart the day I started to dream.
There's more than this Midwestern town,
I can't let this place keep me down.

So I tell myself:
"There's a girl out on the coast of California,
There's a world out there and it's waiting for you."

And I can hear them calling my name tonight.

Take me away, I need the sand and the waves
The sunset, and let's not forget those warm autumn days.
I just need to get out of here."
-dear juliet-

"Sometimes, I think I need to get away,
Pack all my things,
Get on a plane,
Head off alone one summer day,
Never look back at the town i called home.
Maybe visit california,
I hear its nice there in the summer,
but all the waves and coastline and sunset shores would just make me miss you more."

"One more year, we'd better make the best of this one
you just can't beat the weather here in autumn
please stay close to me
i just need to know you're gonna call me
i need to know that everything will all be
okay, while i'm away."

"I'm just a face for every picture,
A smile for your scrapbooks,
And a story to be told.

But I'm loving every second,
So commemorate this hour
As the last I spend regretting what I have."
-all time low-

"Another seven days
Heartbeat racing
The interstate, my home tonight
For one more long night
I'm sure as hell the happiest I've ever been.

Now make a change,
I'm counting down
The mile marks to every town
And falling more in love
With the distance put between us.

From coast to coast, I'll make the most
Of every second I've been giving with this crowd."

"I've got no place in my heart for a criminal like you to dwell,
in this endeavor, make this last forever...
I'm just delirious,
You can't be serious,
You're so infamous for leaving me a mess...

Take off your makeup, put down the camera,
choke on the drama that makes me want to,
tear up the pictures and pages you've saved,
creating a life of trends and make believe...

She gets what she wants and she breaks what she gets,
get out while you can or she'll tear you to pieces /
"Are you having a good time sweetheart?"

Carry on home,
I'll be waiting miles and miles away,
leaving you to be forever seventeen,
cleaning up the messes that you've made."

" Let's get drunk
You can drive us to the harbor
Wish upon a star but
Do you know what stars are?
Balls of fire, burning up the black space
Falling from the landscape
Exploding in the face of God

Let's get crazy,
Talk about our big plans
Places that you're going
Places that I haven't been
Build my walls up
Concrete castle
Keep this kingdom free of hassle."
-something corporate-

"I grow tired of writing songs
While people listen but never hear what's really going on now
Tell me what's so wrong now.

For most of men believe hell is never knowing who they are now
(Tell me who you are now)
Finally saved from the outside trapped in what you know,
Are you safe from yourself? Can you escape all by yourself?

It's not the lives that you save
But what the silence will scream."

"Staring out windows,
A place we've never been.
While soundtracks play in backgrounds
To the stories of our lives-
Non-fiction, oh envision,
if we never met and what we missed,
And never really learned
Pacific Standard Time."

"'I'm here for you,' she said
and we can stay for awhile,
my boyfriends gone,
we can just pretend.'
Lips that need no introduction
Now whos the greater sin?

Everyone in this town
is seeing someone else
Everybody tired of someone
our eyes wander for help
Prayers that need no answer now
I'm tired of who I am.
You were my greatest mistake-
I fell in love with your sin,
You littlest sin."

" Well I thought that we could sit around and talk for hours
about things I couldn't say to you,
and things that we could never do and,
This conversation has had no face
when the words take days you can re-write and erase anything.

and I'll borrow words from all my favourite paragraphs
to write about all of these faded things
we hope would mean the most to me
and each line is sent,
i have found a new pages of hope for the days when i feel like I've lost everything."
-mayday parade-

"i could only sing you sad songs
and you could sing along
and you could see the melody
that's been calling out your wrongs
and this never will be right with me."

"and you dropped the note and we changed key
you changed yourself and i changed me
i really didn't see us singing through this
then you screamed the bridge
and i cried the verse
and our chorus came out unrehearsed
and you smiled the whole way through it
i guess maybe that's what's worse

and i hope this makes you happy now
that the flame we had is burning out
and i hope you like your pictures facing down."

"Well, this hurts me more than I can stand to say
In just one sitting,
you left the room so I could pray.

So I'll pace the halls to see
If I could find a hole in something
Or maybe places to escape

Oh, and everybody knows this is the part
Of breaking down in anybody's arms
I'm reaching down and hoping this one's ours
God, please let this take..

And you got here just in time
To let me know I was worth saving,
If nothing more than for the heart.

Too proud to breathe,
But I'm too scared to say the things worth saying.
Who knew this trip would be this hard?

As I'm looking to the sky to count the stars
I wonder if you see them where you are."

"Im not, not sure,
Not too sure how it feels
To handle everyday
Like the one that just passed."
