So maybe you could walk with me a while and maybe I could rest beneath your smile. Everybody stumbles sometimes and needs a hand to hold because it’s a long trip alone.
She wouldn’t care if you called her and woke her up to talk at 2am. She loves arguing, and she’s good at it. Scary movies make her paranoid. She hates it when people don’t call her back. She envies every couple she sees walking around showing their happiness. She only wants to be happy lately, and lately all she’s thought about is you.
Never think “what if?” Everything happens for a reason. So when things don’t work out, shake it off and realize it wasn’t worth it like you thought it was.
Every time again I’m afraid that you won’t be there, that you have left to never come back again. You’re not even mine and though every day I’m afraid to lose you. And goodbye is the hardest part, every time again. Seeing how you walk away, without looking back. I’m afraid one day you’ll do that for good…
Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.
People spend their whole lives trying to live up to other people’s expectations and being told what to do. I say screw that – be free. Do what you want, go where you want, and reach for the sky because life has no limits or boundaries. Boundaries are just other people’s fears, and limits are just other people’s expectations. You only get one chance to do all the things that life offers you. Have no enemies, no regrets, no fears, and then you’ll have really lived life.
Sometimes, truth isn’t good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

I liked the days when boys were written down on paper listed on your top 5, instead of you carrying them in your heart. When you would brag about how cool your parents were, instead of talking about how they now ruin your lives. When the only reason you didn’t want to get out of bed for school was because you were sleepy, and now it’s because each day is a struggle. While hide and seek was the coolest game, instead of guys seeing how many girls they can go out with at one time. When you wished upon birthday candles, and now you wish on a boy who is holding your heart. The days when you were just a kid who still had their innocence, and now you’re a teenager who knows everything has changed.
Sometimes I wonder what life would have been like if we never met. It would have been simpler, yes, easier, maybe, but then I realized that it also would be incomplete.
There are some things we do because we convince ourselves it would be better for everyone involved. We tell ourselves that it’s the right thing to do, the alturistic thing to do. It’s easier then telling ourselves the truth.
