I know that I always say that Jawbreaker’s Jinx Removing is the most accurate and perfect song about being in real life, grown up, mutual love with someone ever. But I’m starting to think that this one rivals, if not tops, it. Maybe it’s just because I’m a mess of anxiety lately or that the world feels like it’s becoming increasingly more terrifying and awful lately. Or maybe it’s just that I am so mentally exhausted and always waiting, waiting, waiting to see if the steps I’m trying to take to make things better are actually going anywhere. In any case,
"Let’s walk and pretend that we’re at the end of this scraping,
this burning, this ‘the hard way’ learning.
I’m sick. You’re tired. Oh yeah.”
"Sit next to me, we can talk or just kiss.
You can rub my palm and say better than this.
Your smile makes me cry when it’s not on there right,
and I’m not fine and I’m not the one crying.”
"I’m dragging you down, cause I’m lonely and I need you around."
all resonate so, so much lately.
