Another song addiction...

I've been listening to a song called Dusk and Summer by Dashboard Confessional a lot recently. It's one of those songs that you can just press play again and again with...  I just thought I would share some lyrics from it, because quite frankly, they are brilliant.

"She smiled in a big way, the way a girl like that smiles when the world is hers."

"And she said, "Nobody here can live forever," quiet in the grasp of dusk and summer."

"But you've already lost when you only have barely enough of her to hang on."

"And she told you laughing down to her core
So she would not cry as she lay in your lap"
"Some things tie a life together, you slendered threads and things to treasure."

"Days like that should last and last and last."

See, quite brilliant.  And quite beautiful really.  Anyway, just wanted to share.

While I wasn't looking.

Isn't the unexpected funny?  It just kind of sneaks up on you.  And the weirdest thing?  The last thing you expect can be just what you needed.  A big case of 'who knew?!' right there.  And it just gets stranger still.  Sometimes it's the last thing you thought you wanted.  And it can be so unexpected that you might actually want it when it's there.  Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.  Well put John.

Just a reminder that really we aren't in control of what happens.  We can never know what lies just over that rise.  But when we get there we have to appreciate that it's beautiful there.
