This-Song-Will-Save-Your-Life

Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.
—  Leila Sales, This Song Will Save Your Life
I had this feeling suddenly. I get this feeling a lot, but I don’t know if there’s one word for it. It’s not nervous or sad or even lonely. It’s all of that, and then a bit more. The feeling is I don’t belong here. I don’t know how I got here, and I don’t know how long I can stay before everyone else realizes that I am an impostor. I am a fraud. I’ve gotten this feeling nearly everywhere I have ever been in my life. There’s nothing you can do about it except drink some water and hope that it subsides. Or you can leave.

The Signs as The Smiths Lyrics
  • aries: heavy words are so lightly thrown, but still i'd leap infront of a flying bullet for you
  • taurus: i don't have much in my life, but take it, it's yours
  • gemini: if you're so funny, then why are you on your own tonight? and if you're so clever, then why are you on your own tonight?
  • cancer: you can kick me and you can punch me and you can break my face 
but you won't change the way i feel
  • leo: and you never knew how much i really liked you, because i never even told you and oh, i meant to
  • virgo: if a double decker bus crashes into us, to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die.
  • libra: in my life, why do i give valuable time to people who don't care if i live or die?
  • scorpio: does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body? i dunno
  • sagittarius: i've seen you smile, but i've never really heard you laugh
  • capricorn: they said there's too much caffeine in your bloodstream and a lack of real spice in your life
  • aquarius: don't forget the songs that made you cry, and the songs that saved your life. you're older now and you're a clever swine, but they were the only ones who ever stood by you
  • pisces: i am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar, i am the son and heir of nothing in particular
You think it’s so easy to change yourself. You think it’s so easy, but it’s not. True, things don’t stay the same forever: couches are replaced, boys leave, you discover a song, your body becomes forever scarred. And with each of these moments you change and change again, your true self spinning, shifting positions— but always at last it returns to you, like a dancer on the floor. Because throughout it all, you are still, always, you: beautiful and bruised, known and unknowable. And isn’t that - just you - enough.
