Gravity

One of my current favourite song..

Gravity by Sara Bareilles

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.

CHORUS
Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.

You loved me 'cause I'm fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.

CHORUS
Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me and all over me.

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on the ground.
But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down


Think this would make a perfect song for `New Moon' - esp describing Bella's situation after Edward left.. sigh..

love

I'm one of those people who's usually drawn to love stories like a fish to the sea.. For many reasons really.. mainly because I love happy endings.. I love the craziness people get when they're in love, the look they have in their eyes, the stupid things they end up doing because they are. Then there's the kind of i'd die for you kinda love that for me sometimes is insane and silly really but nevertheless good drama to watch.. All in all, it makes me feel good and all warm inside..

The thing that gets me also is the realization that a person has when they know they're smitten, blown away, taken aback, you name it.. Those first feelings of attraction, the euphoria when you get a glimpse of him or her..

Love drives you crazy.. even if you're not in love.. does that make sense?

I guess everyone has their own version of what love is to them and I guess that's normal cuz it's a different experience for everyone.. It can't all be glorious as in a movie or a novel cuz nothing's perfect..

Yet I am a sucker for romantic movies or novels that make you just melt and be swooned over.. I'm no idealist, but once in a while you just wanna be swept off your feet, even if its just by a fictional character..
