Backwards Walk

Trying to forget about someone, to retreat from all your feelings for them, is like trying to walk backwards... A difficult thing to learn.

Up, Over & Beyond

Let the sunshine carry you up, over, and beyond all that would try to keep you down.
Or - how a keen and sudden realisation is equal to wings; strength, resolve, independence, ~ freedom.

'I will not be a victim of romance, I will not be a victim of circumstance, or chance...'

Love is a Losing Game

Yes, I'm beginning to think it is.

But somehow, melancholy like this, is always softened through song. Yes, love sucks, losing in love sucks, but doesn't this song serve as a lullaby to it somehow? Doesn't it make it - better - somehow? It gets it. It understands. It listens to us, as we listen to it.

You Are My Sunshine

Notice how many songs there are that describe the feeling of being in love to being in the sun? The beloved to glorious sunshine?And love to the sun that brightens our days beautifully. So many! And, so true, the perfect comparison.

Here's a few of my favourites:

The highs of shiny summer love: ~ 'You shine like silver in the sunlight, you light up my cold heart...'

All sparkled awe at new love!: ~ 'I'm yours and suddenly you're mine and it's brighter than sunshine...'

The hesitant fear but over-riding happiness of going from dark to light - uncertainty, pain, longing to - love, sunny love: ~  'I cross the shadow and step into your sun...'
