"You know those days before I met you? Well good, ‘cause I don't either. It's almost like they were meant to make the whole thing sweeter..." -- John Mayer
Love is like Novocain
And it leaves a little stain.
The beauty in all this pain is I can’t get away from you,
So pull me down and don’t make a sound.
"Give up, just quit, because in this life, you can't win. Yeah, you can try, but in the end your just gonna lose, big time, because the world is run by the man. The Man, oh you don't know the man. He's everywhere... in the Whitehouse... down the hall -Ms. Mullens, she's the man. And the man ruined the ozone, he's burning down the Amazon, and he kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank! And there used to be a way to stick it to the man, it was called Rock and Roll, but guess what, oh no, the man ruined that too with a little thing called MTV! So don't waste your time trying to make anything cool or pure or awesome cause the man is just gonna call you a fat washed up loser and crush your soul. So do yourselves a favor and just GIVE UP!" - School of Rock
"Dusk, I realized then, is just an illusion, because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are; there cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time." - The Notebook
Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of which has caught my eye
And roped me in
So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing
I am captivated

"What can I say?
I'll bite my tongue again today.
What can I do when I feel so stupid over you?
I wish they'd go ahead and cut it off.
And I don't wanna work anymore
cause' sometimes I just can't ignoreAnd someday I'll just shut my eyes
and maybe then you'll realize...
the way I feel when I see you smile.
I'm just a fucking geek in love with you."
“Love is being stupid together.” – Paul Valery
I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away
You've gone away, you don't feel me, anymore
- Seether ft. Amy Lee, "Broken"
Is everything a baited hook?
And are there locks on all doors?
If you're looking for an open book
Look no further, I am yours
- Incubus, "Southern Girl"
"Worse, than the total agony of being in love?" – Love Actually
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about arrivals day at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's started to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed. I dont see that; it seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it is not particularly dignified or news-worthy, but it's always there: fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge, they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling that you'll find that love actually is all around." - Love Actually
