The Ghost Train
“And if you can’t say yes, answer anyway. Because I’d rather live with the answer than die with the question.”
The Needle And Ink
“Look at you, like a new tattoo. Because I might not always have you but I’ll have the feeling of you for the rest of my life.”
The Point Past Peak Feelings
“I know you have feelings left somewhere.
But they’re all so hard to reach.”
The Lack Of Postcards
“I know you’re not here, I can see it in your eyes when we talk. Where ever you are, come back soon.”
The First Time We Met
“It’s when you hold eye contact for that second too long or maybe the way you laugh. It sets off a flash and our memories take a picture of who we are at that point when we first know “This is love.”
And we clutch that picture to our hearts because we expect each other to always be the people in that picture. But people change. People aren’t pictures. And you can either take a new picture or throw the old one away.”
The Blue Lines
“I couldn’t convince you that the blue you see is the same blue that I see. But maybe that’s how lovers know they’re meant to love; they see the same blue. And they both know it.”
“I like to think that somewhere out there, on a planet exactly like ours, two people exactly like you and me made totally different choices and that, somewhere, we’re still together.
That’s enough for me.”
The Best Way To Run Into Traffic
“It does not count if you believe in yourself when it’s easy to believe in yourself. It does not count if you believe the world can be a better place when the future looks bright. It does not count if you think you’re going to make it when the finish line is right in front of you.
It counts when it’s hard to believe in yourself, when it looks like the world’s going to end and you’ve still got a long way to go.
That’s when it counts. That’s when it matters the most.”
The Metronome Tree
“Forget about your lists and do what you can because that’s all you can do. Phone up the people you miss and tell them you love them. Hug those close to you as hard as you can. Because you are always only a drunk driver’s stupidity, a nervous shopkeeper’s mistake, a doctor’s best attempts and an old age away from forever.”
The View On The Way Down
“All the hardest, coldest people you meet were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living.”
The Finite Curve
“You will only be hurt a finite number of times during your life.
You have an infinite number of ways to deal with it.”
