Life is so full of unpredictable beauty and strange surprises. Sometimes that beauty is too much for me to handle. Do you know that feeling? When something is just too beautiful? When someone says something or writes something or plays something that moves you to the point of tears, maybe even changes you.

Im Going to Pretend I Didn't Break Your Heart
The Eels

I’m gonna tell you what you need to hear
And I’m a little too late
By three or four years
And it may not make much sense
Now that we are apart
But I’m going to stop pretending
That I didn’t break your heart

You see I never thought enough of myself
To realize that losing me could mean
Something like the tears in your eyes
And I want to tell you I’m sorry
And it’s too late to start
But I’m going to stop pretending
That I didn’t break your heart

And it’s Christmas eve
Years down the line
Sitting here wishing I’d treated you better
When you were mine
And I have no way of knowing where you are
But I’m going to stop pretending
That I didn’t break your heart

I didn’t mean to hurt you
I didn’t know what I was doing
But I know what I have done
