Starálfur



"Meeting you was fate, and becoming your friend was a choice. But falling in love with you I had no control over."

I don't even know what to say in this post. I just felt the need to post, I needed to write everything down, and I also promised to post more often. I don't even know where to begin to say how I feel right now. So I'll let song lyrics do that for me.

"I never want to see you unhappy, I thought you'd want the same for me. Goodbye, my almost lover, goodbye my hopeless dream. I'm trying not to think about you, can't you just let me be? So long, my luckless romance, my back is turned on you. I should've known you'd bring me heartache; almost lovers always do. I cannot go to the ocean, I cannot drive the streets at night. I cannot wake up in the morning without you on my mind. So you're gone and I'm haunted, and I bet you are just fine. Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out of my life?" A Fine Frenzy- Almost Lover.

"I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you. Yes, there's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you. I've seen the waters that make your eyes shine, now I'm shining too because, oh because I've fallen quite hard over you. If I didn't know you, I'd rather not know, if I couldn't have you I'd rather be alone." Landon Pigg- Falling In Love at a Coffe Shop.

"We belonged to a bird who cast his shadow on this world. You were a blessing and I was a curse. I did my best not to make things worse for you. It isn't true, I always knew this would be our fate. This is what happens when we separate, this is what happens to all dead weight eventually. We may as well be made of stone, we can't be formed. One wing will never fly, neither yours nor mine. I fear we can only wave goodbye." Wilco- One Wing.

"I tried to do handstands for you, I tried to do headstands for you. Every time I fell on you, yeah every time I fell. I tried to do handstands for you, but every time I fell for you, I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for you." Chairlift- Bruises.

"Everything alive must die, every building built to the sky will fall. Don't try to tell me my everlasting love is a lie, everlasting everything. Oh, nothing could mean anything at all, every wave that hits the shore. Every book that I adore, gone like a circus, gone like a troubadour. Everlasting love for ever more, oh I know this might sound sad. But everything goes, both good and the bad. It all adds up and you should be glad. Everlasting love is all you have." Wilco- Everlasting Love.

"If you're still alive, my regrets are few. If my life is mine, what shouldn't I do? I get wherever I'm going, I get whatever I need. While my blood's still flowing, and my heart still beats, beating like a hammer." Metric- Help I'm Alive.

"When I see your smile, tears roll down my face I can't replace. And now that I'm strong I have figured out how this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul. And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one. I will never let you fall, I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to heaven. And seasons are changing, waves are crashing, stars are falling all for us. Days grow longer and nights grow shorter, I can show you I'll be the one. I will never let you fall, I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to heaven, 'cause you're my true love, my whole heart. Please don't throw that away. 'Cause I'm here for you, please don't walk away and please tell me you'll stay. Use me as you will, pull my strings just for a thrill. And I know I'll be ok, though my skies are turning gray." The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus- Your Guardian Angel.

"I'm reading your note over again, there's not a word that I comprehend. Except when you signed it:'I'll love you always and forever.'As for now I'm gonna hear the saddest songs, and sit alone and wonder how you're making out. And as for me, I wish that I was anywhere, with anyone, making out. I'm missing your laugh, how did it break? And when did your eyes begin to look fake? I hope you're as happy as you're pretending, I'm cuddling close to blankets and sheets. I am alone in my defeat. I wish I knew you were safely at home." Dashboard Confessional- Screaming Infidelities.

"A blue, black shade of love, sent from above. My hands are tied to worlds unknown, and this I know. Your breath's like wine, and just like clouds, my skin crawls. It's so divine, the sky it glows with fields of light. Did you know that I love you? Come and lay with me. I love you. And all this day, I will love you. You make me feel alive, and I'll love you until the end of time. My hands shake clasped with fear as you come near. To say goodnight, just like a dove, a peaceful sign. To help us by as you come in, let this begin. Stars fall like dust, our lips will touch. We speak too much. I've got a lot to say, if you will let me. It's always hard when you're around me. But here right now, there's interest in your eyes. So hear me out, and hear this the first time." Angels and Airwaves- Breathe.

"Wherever you go you will return safe. And when you will walk you'll be walking with me. But if it comes the day you meet someone new, you will be with them. But I'll be thinking of you." Doves- Winter Hill.

"After years of waiting nothing came. And you realise you're looking, looking in the wrong place." Radiohead- Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box.

"And I can't face the evening straight, you can offer me escape. Houses move and houses speak, if you take me there you'll get relief. And if I'm gonna talk, I just want to talk. Please don't interrupt, just sit back and listen." Radiohead- Last Flowers.

Sorry for the length, congrats to you if you made it all the way through. :P Hope everyone had a Happy Fourth of July!

And yes, the song is Icelandic. (;

Hey!!
These lyrics are really good. I have to get the songs from youtube now!!!

I'm proud of myself to say that I actually know almost all of those songs! :D But the ones that I haven't heard definitely impressed me with the lyrics, so if you don't mind I'll be going to look them up on YouTube now :) Hope you had a good Fourth too!
