Resolving problems doesn’t have to be a war.. every single time.

The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.

And if this is how it has to be, just promise you won’t forget me.

You can rest easy tonight
Everything is gonna be alright, I promise
Go to sleep and dream of me tonight
Everything may not be perfect, but at least we tried

So tonight

Sweet dreams and sleep tight
I’ve been trying so hard, can’t get you out of my mind
And if this is how it has to be, just promise you won’t forget me
And I’ll leave you with this lullaby tonight

I know that this hurts you, it hurts me too
I wish there was something I could do to make it easier for you
Sometimes it’s tough, too soon to call it love but I wanted to
Yeah I wanted to, but it’s too late now to say all the wonderful things that I thought of you

So tonight

Sweet dreams and sleep tight
I’ve been trying so hard, can’t get you out of my mind
And if this is how it has to be, just promise you won’t forget me
And I’ll leave you with this lullaby tonight

I can be you lost [girl], your last chance, your better reality.

Say goodbye to the halls and the classes
Say hello to a job and the taxes
The weekends with old friends spilling into 9 to 5 routine
Tell me how you feel over and done with
Like your life is a map with no compass to guide,
At the bar drinkin’ way too much
We sing along to “Forever Young”.

So here we go again
Wishin’ we could start again

Wendy run away with me
I know I sound crazy
Don’t you see what you do to me?
I wanna be your lost boy
Your last chance, a better reality

Wendy we can get away
I promise if you’re with me, say the word and we’ll find a way
I can be your lost boy, your last chance
Your “everything better” plan
Oh, somewhere in Neverland
(Somewhere in Neverland)

We’ll start a life of the plain and the simple
Of great times with far better people
And weekends with our friends
Laughing about the wine that stains their teeth
We’ll talk about how your parents separated and
How you don’t wanna make the same mistakes as them
I’ll say it’s all about stickin’ it out
And trying to feel forever young

So here we go again
Wishin’ we could start again

Wendy run away with me
I know I sound crazy
Don’t you see what you do to me?
I want to be your lost boy
Your last chance, a better reality

Wendy we can get away
I promise if you’re with me, say the word and we’ll find a way
I can be your lost boy, your last chance
Your “everything better” plan
Oh, somewhere in Neverland

So here we go again
Wishin’ we could start again

Wendy run away with me
I know I sound crazy
Don’t you see what you do to me?
I want to be your lost boy
Your last chance, a better reality

Wendy we can get away
I promise if you’re with me, say the word and we’ll find a way
I can be your lost boy, your last chance
Your “everything better” plan
Oh, somewhere in Neverland
Oh, somewhere in Neverland
(Somewhere in Neverland)

Even if.

“If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there’s salvation in life. Even if you can’t get together with that person.”

~ Haruki Murakami

Ode to You

As if on music cue, you looked me in the eyes,
Waiting for me to understand and realize

That –

I saw through you – your gestures and smiles;
I stripped your soul of lies and disguise.

And now –

Believe me when I tell you this:
You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
