Writer's Block: Timely Departures

If you could jump in a time machine and travel back to any point in history, where would you go?
Highschool. Right now would kinda be a bit nice.

So, she was a beauty queen of only eighteen and she had some trouble with herself.
He was always, always there to help her.

But then again, she always belonged to someone else.

So he drove for miles and miles and wound up at her door.
And he said, "I've had you so many times but somehow, I want more.

I dont mind spending everyday, out on your corner in the pouring rain."

Guys: Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile

And she will be loved
She will be loved

He continued on,
"Tap on my window, knock on my door;
I want to make you feel beautiful.
I know I tend to get insecure;
It doesn't matter anymore.

It's not always rainbows and butterflies;
It's compromise that moves us along.
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want."

She will be loved

"I know where you hide, alone in your car; I know all of the things that make you who you are.
I know that goodbye means nothing at all."

Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

But she will be loved.
She will.

Estoy un poco triste.

Nov. 12th, 2008

We were both young, when I first saw you.
I close my eyes and the flashback starts-
I'm standing there, on a balcony in summer air.

I see the lights; see the party, the ball gowns.
I see you make your way through the crowd-
You say hello, little did I know...

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles-
And my daddy said "stay away from Juliet"-
And I was crying on the staircase-
begging you please don't go...
And I said...

Romeo take me somewhere, we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say yes.


So I sneak out to the garden to see you.
We keep quiet, because we're dead if they knew-
So close your eyes... escape this town for a little while.
Oh, Oh.

Cause you were Romeo - I was a scarlet letter,
And my daddy said "stay away from Juliet" -
but you were everything to me-
I was begging you, please don't go-
And I said...

Romeo take me somewhere, we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all there's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess.
It's a love story, baby, just say yes-

Romeo save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel.
This love is difficult, but it's real.
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess.
It's a love story, baby, just say yes.
Oh, Oh.

I got tired of waiting.
Wondering if you were ever coming around.
My faith in you was fading-
When I met you on the outskirts of town.
And I said...

Romeo save me, I've been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting, for you but you never come.
Is this in my head, I don't know what to think-
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said...

Marry me Juliet, you'll never have to be alone.
I love you, and that's all I really know.
I talked to your dad -- go pick out a white dress
It's a love story, baby just say... yes.
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh.

We were both young when I first saw you.

There's somethin' 'bout the way
The street looks when it's just rained
There’s a glow off the pavement
Walk me to the car
And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there
In the middle of the parking lot
Yeah
Oh yeah

We're drivin' down the road
I wonder if you know
I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now
But you're just so cool
Run your hands through your hair
Absent mindedly makin' me want you

And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why when with you I dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

So baby drive slow
‘Til we run out of road in this one horse town
I wanna stay right here in this passenger’s seat
You put your eyes on me
In this moment now capture it, remember it

Cuz I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I’d dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Well you stood there with me in the doorway
My hands shake
I'm not usually this way but
You pull me in and I’m a little more brave
It’s the first kiss,
It's flawless,
Really something,
It’s fearless.

Oh yeah
And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I would dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.
May your dreams stay big and your worries stay small.

<3

Love is always there. Most especially when you least expect it.

TwinHannieWesAmoreMioMarGie <3 it still is!

Haha. I'm cool.

and you say

You say I only hear what I want to.
You say I talk so all the time so.
And I thought what I felt was simple,
and I thought that I don't belong,
and now that I am leaving,
now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you.
Yeah yeah, I missed you.
And you say I only hear what I want to:
I don't listen hard,
don't pay attention to the distance that you're running
to anyone, anywhere,
I don't understand if you really care,
I'm only hearing negative: no, no, no.
So I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up,
and this woman was singing my song:
lover's in love, and the other's run away,
lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay.
Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was
dying since the day they were born.
Well, well, this is not that;
I think that I'm throwing, but I'm thrown.
And I thought I'd live forever, but now I'm not so sure.
You try to tell me that I'm clever,
but that won't take me anyhow, or anywhere with you.
You said that I was naive,
and I thought that I was strong.
I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave."
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you.
Yeah, I miss you.
You said, "I caught you 'cause I want you and one day I'll let you go."
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me 'cause you know you're just
scared to lose.
And you say, "Stay."
And you say I only hear what I want to. 

To the graduating class of Assumption College, SY 2007-2008:
from kinder all the way to highschool...
I've seen many of you grow from my very own eyes and now, through pictures and writings
in love, faith, beauty and friendship.

You made it.

Congratulations!! 
May God bless you all in everything in the future!!





Hopefully, I'll be able to see many of you again.

how did you find me?
Lo:Do you think that people can really change, though?
Lauren: I think that everyone can change if the right person comes along
and I think that every girl wants to be the right person.
Every girl wants to be the one girl that can change that guy.
Lo: But why do you have to have a guy that you have to change?
Don't you want to meet somebody that's good already?
Lauren: That's too easy.

*
maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me.
'cause after all, you're my wonderwall.

All I wanted to do, all I wanted to say.
All I wanted to feel. I wanted to love
 

angel of mercy
how did you move me?

happy assumption day.

"Try"

All I know
Is everything is not as it's sold
but the more I grow the less I know
And I have lived so many lives
Though I'm not old
And the more I see, the less I grow
The fewer the seeds the more I sow

Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try
Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try

I wish I hadn't seen all of the realness
And all the real people are really not real at all
The more I learn, the more I learn
The more I cry, the more I cry
As I say goodbye to the way of life
I thought I had designed for me

Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try
Then I see you standing there
I'm all I'll ever be
But all I can do is try
Try

All of the moments that already passed
We'll try to go back and make them last
All of the things we want each other to be
We never will be
And that's wonderful, and that's life
And that's you, baby
This is me, baby
And we are, we are, we are, we are
Free
In our love
We are free in our love

perfect

snow patrol chasing cars

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone 

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world? 

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel
 

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough 

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world? 

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life
 

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads 

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own 

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world? 

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life 

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see 

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all 

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?


it is as if every word was carefully chosen, painstakingly thought of; it's as if every single word had another meaning behind it. this lovely is song <3 

what else? oth <3 ;)

Brooke: There are 82 letters in here, and they're all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer. One a day, but I never sent them 'cause I was afraid.
Lucas: Brooke...
Brooke: I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before. 'Cause you hurt me so bad, and I was afraid to be vulnerable. And I was afraid of you and the way that you make me feel. And I know that doesn't matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This was how I spent my summer, Luke, wanting you... I'm just too scared to admit it.
Lucas: Brooke! I'm sorry! What you did with Chris... it's okay.
Brooke: It's not. It can't be. It's too much to forgive!
Lucas: Well, that's too bad because...I forgive you.
Brooke: You can't!
Lucas: I just did. So you're gonna just have to deal with it. I'm the guy for you Brooke Davis, and I know I hurt you last time we're together, but...
Brooke: I love you.
Lucas: I love you too... pretty girl.

"One day at a time- this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."
