So Please Stay…
You painted me in pastel,
colors that don’t tell of any boldness.
That’s the way you’d love to see me:
so delicate, so weak, so little purpose.
– The Hush Sound (“The Artist”)
All love shifts and changes.
I don’t know if you can be
wholeheartedly in love all the time.
I guess I have always been deeply
terrified to really be someone’s
wife since I know from life one
cannot love another, ever, really.
– Marilyn Monroe
In the course of my life,
I have often had to eat my words,
and I must confess that I have
always found it a wholesome diet.
– Winston Churchill
We made plans to be unbreakable,
love was all we knew.
No insurance for the unthinkable,
blindly get us through.
– Mae (“Mistakes We Knew We Were Making”)
I am finding out that maybe I was wrong
That I’ve fallen down and I can’t do this alone
Stay with me, this is what I need, please?
I am nothing now and it’s been so long
Since I’ve heard the sound, the sound of my only hope
This time I will be listening.
– Paramore (“My Heart”)
