Stars - Heart

Time can take its toll on the best of us
Look at you, you're growing old so young
Traffic lights blink at you in the evening
You tilt your head and turn it to the sun

Sometimes the TV is like a lover
Singing softly as you fall asleep
You wake up in the morning and it's still there
Adding up the things you'll never be

Alright, I can say what you want me to
Alright, I can do all the things you do
Alright, I'll make it all up for you
I'm still in love with you
I'm still in love with you

Time can take its toll on the best of us
Look at you, you're growing old so young
Traffic lights blink at you in the evening
You tilt your head and turn it to the sun

You disembark the latest flight to paradise
You almost turn your ankle in the snow
You fall back into where you started
Make up words to songs you used to know

Alright, I can say what you want me to
Alright, I can do all the things you do
Alright, I'll make it all up for you
I'm still in love with you
I'm still in love with you

Kurt Cobain - he never had a chance, you know
Incurable romantics never do
He held a flame I wasn't born to carry
I'll leave the dying young stuff up to you

You get back on the latest flight to paradise
I found out from a note taped to the door
I think I saw your airplane in the sky tonight
Through my window lying on the kitchen floor

I want more
Give me more

A million thanks to Stonez who sent the song to me. It is sang with such light intoxicating happiness which comes with the peace we feel as we reminisce our pasts (perhaps broken pasts which we had shared with someone we loved, and still love) and embrace our memories, as we submerge ourselves slowly in the deep vortex of melancholy.

In the still frames of my memory, your shadow is silhouetted against the pale moonlight in the darkest and coldest of nights, and in a fleeting instant, everything, along with your shivering shadow, becomes beautifully blurred and distant.

Man, that was so heart piercing I was about to cry. I'm so thankful my beloved one (the one and only) is with me. You really made me reflect upon it. I wish you are able to find such privilege soon.

Good airplane to be a passenger aboard, heading for paradise. "Let's make heaven a place on Earth!"
Good luck to all you young folks out there. It is a privilege to die young.

The Usual Stuff: Thanks. :)

Axel: They say the nice men finish fast, and I say only the good ones die young.
