at the fall out boy concert i went to patrick had to stop halfway through what a catch, donnie because he had started crying so he just kinda sat at his piano and looked out at the audience, who were all very quiet and had their phone torches out, and he said “you guys leave me speechless. good thing they gave me a microphone, huh? so i can keep talking.” and then he wiped his eyes and started twenty dollar nose bleed.

but the thing is that, even after all these years, after everything has gotten better and he’s probably sung that song more times than he’d care to count, he still gets emotional about it. because it’s about him as much as it’s for him, and pete wentz could have died but he didn’t, and his best friend still means the world to him.

and i think that was the most defining thing about patrick stump i’ve ever seen.
