And I’d do anything for you
I’ll give you up
If that’s what I should do
To make you happy
Don’t you ever think that I don’t love you
That for one minute I forgot you
But sometimes things don’t work out right
And you just have to say goodbye…
“If loving you is all that means to me
When being happy is all I hope you’d be
Then loving you must mean
I really have to set you free..”
You know that feeling when you’re just waiting, waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed, and just let everything out that you kept in all day, that feeling of both relief and desperation? Nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either, and you’re tired, tired of everything, tired of nothing, and you just want someone to be there and tell you it’s okay, but no one’s going to be there, and you know you have to be strong for yourself because no one can fix you. But you’re tired of waiting, tired of having to be the one to fix yourself and everyone else, tired of being strong, and for once, you just want it to be easy, to be simple, to be helped, to be saved, but you know you won’t be, but you’re still hoping and you’re still wishing and you’re still staying strong and fighting with tears in your eyes. You’re fighting.
I don’t know why we all hang on to something we know were better letting go. It’s like were scared to lose what we don’t even really have. Some of us say we’d rather have that something than absolutely nothing, but the truth is, to have it halfway is harder than not having it at all.
You know what your problem is? You get attached, fast. And once you’re attached to someone, you do everything you can to please them and make them happy. It’s never been about what you want; it’s always everyone’s needs before your own. You give out too many chances to people, who quite frankly, do not deserve them. They take advantage of you, and you become a pushover. But you’re okay with that, because they’re in your life and that’s all you ever really wanted. And even if they screw you over, you’ll still be there for her. Because that’s you, that’s who you are. Once you get attached to someone, they capture your heart and they always have a place there. And that is why it’s so hard for you to let go.
I get the whole “She’s the only girl I’ve ever really been in love with” part. It’s hard to let go, hard to move on to someone else and think you’ll never find anyone with such characteristics or chemistry like you two had, but I promise you, once you let go and move on, you’ll find out that, deep down, the only feelings you have for her might be just the fact that you’ll always love her. You may not want her back, you might just be scared to move on without her.
Nobody wants to hear this but sometimes the person you want the most, is the person you are best without.
I cannot ease your aching heart,
nor take your pain away;
but let me stay and take your hand,
and walk with you today.
I’ll listen when you need to talk,
I’ll wipe away your tears;
I’ll share your worries when they come,
and I’ll help you face your fears.
Don’t you ever, ever think that you are alone in this world. When you’re feeling down,
lonely, as if you walk this road alone, stop. Stop and look around you.
There is always someone. There will always be someone. And if you see no-one, look deeper.
Maybe that someone you need lies inside of you. You will never, ever in this world be alone.
Just remember that.
Sometimes you’ll find that the saddest songs bring you the most comfort. And the memories that make you cry are the happiest ones you’ll ever have.
“Music is what feelings sound like.”
How do you find in yourself the great spirit of generous love, true love, deep love? Simple: You find it with deep self-honesty. When you are deeply honest with yourself, you come to realize that you are a loving person. And moreover, you want to be a loving person.
It goes without saying that trying to love as a should is absolutely obnoxious to the soul. It could not possibly satisfy you or your beloved. If anybody ever told you to love as a should, they were indeed wrong, and you knew it.
You have the standards, within yourself, that will satisfy you. No other standards will do. Consequently, until and unless you love the way youfeel you should love — the way your soul wants to, and the way you know is right — you can’t possibly be satisfied.
Like the Santana song says, “Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it.” — Amen to that! Certainly, if love is going to be ashould, we may as well forget about it. But if it’s real, then we have — and are — true companions. Then we have a bank account we can draw upon for the difficulties of ordinary life. Then we have real relationship security. And we have the satisfaction of knowing that we have done the thing that we felt, in our deep heart, we should do.
