Other Side of Things

311
"Other Side Of Things"

Emotions are elastic
they stretch out and back
stretch out and back
sometimes they just snap
they don't go back
they never go back

Don't

Don't see why I have to explain myself again and again
Don't see why it's your business to know
Don't see why you can't open your mind and understand
That all I care about is me, myself and I

Don't know when it all fell apart
Don't know when my feelings just died
Don't know when it became apparent that it just wasn't right
All I know is I don't like being tied

Don't think that I never cared about my life
Don't think that it's such a big deal
Don't think the future's that bright
Cause even the rain deserves a little sunshine sometimes

Don't make things anymore difficult than it already is
Don't make yourself sick over something that wasn't meant to be
Don't make it as if everything will always lead to certainty
Because being together doesn't guarantee we'll last forever

Can't Walk and Run

Two people in a relationship, if one's running, and the other's walking, somebody's gonna trip.

Think

Me thinks, unless you've got lotsa braincells to spare, it's probably not such a good thing to think too much.

But uhm, well, you don't want risk NOT or TOO MUCH thinking. Cause you either become big-headed (too much braincells and too little thinking) or empty-headed (too little braincells and too much thinking).

Balance, is probably the key word.

I think.

Maturity

'Grow up,' he says. 'Grow up,' she says. WTF??!! Grow up to become what? Growing up to become who?

Who decides when to grow up, who decides I should 'grow up'? Does being aged 21 denotes adulthood = maturity? Whether you think you know all there is to know, or whether you know you still have much to learn is reduntant. No one mortal is perfect, everyone's a sinner, so no one mortal knows the perfect benchmark to judge a person.

Stay true to yourself, stay on the path. Sometimes you get there, sometimes you're knocked off your feet. But if you're brave and mature, and hopefully not dumb, then maybe you'll get back on the track. But hell, sometimes a little detour won't kill.

Unless you end up being roadkill. Then I suppose that's too bad.

The clouds are out, the sun is hidden. Little wonder why you're walking around blindly and crashing into trees. Open your eyes dammit! And maybe you'll see that there are billions of people out there crashing into you, crashing into trees. And maybe you'll see billions and billions of stars up there. Unless the sun is out, then you probably won't.

But it's okay, cause at least you know you're not alone. Except maybe, in your heart. Think your heart is capable of fitting another person inside? Hmmph, if you answered 'yes' then I suggest you think again. With all the blood pumping in that single organ that determines whether you live or die, don't you think your heart's an awful tight and small space to have to put another person inside?

But don't fret yet. Maybe your mind will have some room. Some space to fill thoughts of others. Unless of course, it's already stuffed full of crap.

So is it better to be empty-headed? But wouldn't that mean you aren't capable of thinking for yourself?

But if you take stock of what 'mature' people say, then wouldn't you be considered 'matured'?? After all, that's all you ever think of.
