I hear that…

I hear that…



All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
—Henry Ellis
Don’t think we’re not serious, when’s it ever not?
The love we make, it’s give and it’s take, I’m game to play along.
—Jimmy Eat World’s “Work”
As much as I’d like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I’d like to feel like I belong here
I’m just as scared as you…
—Evanescence’s “Lost In Paradise”
And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
—Florence + The Machine’s “Shake It Out”

Of all the money that e’er I had
I’ve spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I’ve done for want of wit
To memory now I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that ever I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that ever I had
They would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and I’ll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ordered been
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all

—Ed Sheeran’s “Give Me Love”
It’s such a cold cold world
(Hello cold world)
And I can’t get out
So I’ll just make the best of everything I’ll never have
—Paramore’s “Hello Cold World”
Joy runs deeper than despair.
—Corrie Ten Boom
