I asked her, "Don't you ever want to just run away?"
She said, "I'm happy with what I have"
"You're happy living this life where everyone tells you what to do and how to do it?"
"That's not how it is"
To be honest, I only asked her because I wanted to be the one she runs away with
I've been told I'm different
Some people say that's a good thing
Others want everyone to be like them
I don't like people telling me how things should be done
I respect ligers
"I want to get lost"
"What do you mean?"
"I want to go out and drive until the morning light reveals where I am"
"That's interesting, I guess. What if you can't find your way back?"
"That's the fun part," I said
I wrote a song the other day
It's really bad
The whole song is just terrible
If I had a nickel every time I hear someone say "You don't apply yourself"
I'd probably have a dollar or two
"We said we'd run away together," I reminded her
"Yeah. We said a lot of things"
"We were so dumb"
"No, we weren't dumb. We're just smarter now"
"I love you"
"I love you too sweetie"
We fell asleep in each others arms for the first time that night
I've been getting really into 9/8 time lately
I recently got an iPod
That's nice, because I used to have to say "mp3 player" all the time
Different songs evoke different emotions in me
Some songs make me happy as a penguin
Penguins seem pretty happy
Some songs make me cry
Other songs remind me how angry I am
Sometimes I need to listen to those songs
It's always good to have a reminder that not everything in this world is perfect
Imperfection makes up everything
I once made up a word
I used it 20 times in one day
Sometimes in class, the teacher gives us a packet to read and a highlighter to highlight important stuff
I don't highlight important stuff
I highlight words that are 3 letters or less
I told her, "I think I've got this love thing figured out"
"How do you think it goes?"
"Love is like a puzzle. There's three kinds of pieces. Sides, corners, and inside pieces."
"Ok, go on"
"The side pieces connect to 3 other pieces, but corners connect to 2, and the insides connect to 4. What if people are like puzzle pieces?"
"What do you mean?"
"What if we can connect to more than one piece? Some people are right for more than one person. Like us. Before we met, maybe I could've connected to another person. But I didn't. I'm with you."
"And if you already connect with someone else and you're in love with them, you don't connect with anyone else as much. But some people let their desires overcome their true feelings. That's when they break the scissors out. They cut the puzzle piece so it'll fit with another one. They're just lying to themselves."
"I guess that makes sense"
"Maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about"
"Let's just forget about it"
"Yeah, you're right. Let's just go to sleep"
"What's wrong babe?"
"Nothing...forget about it"
"I love you...more than anything"
"I love you too baby"
"I've never cut my piece"
