Lee Min Ki - Everything feat. 3rd Coast (“Temperature of Love OST”, 2013)
That the one you loved so hard, but not forever, because no one accepts the cliche moniker of forever, could hurt you so much, is the biggest cliche of all. The one who was there for so long, but not quite forever; the one whom could have been everything, but was not quite, yet will forever remain in memory as someone who was still more than nothing. And that is enough, the residual unreached potential is still enough. It’s more than you deserve.
Elliott turned 27 last weekend. Around 1AM, while our livers worked courageously on detoxifying our bloodstreams, came that point in the night where we wondered if we could see the Sears Tower from our rooftop. We scrambled up a haphazard opening in a stairwell and found our way onto the roof and sure enough, we could see the skyline of Chicago from our house. Rooftop access is one of the things I miss the most of when I used to live in NYC, and for a second, I forgot where we were. I took these shitty, blurry photos as an afterthought - I was beginning to wonder how we’d get down.
On & on I feel this way Ever since you’ve fallen from the sky I’m in love again Even though you will never be mine On & on oh can’t you stay? It’s been colder since you’ve gone away I’ve been torn again Cast away to the moments in my life
