its actually embarrassing how much of an effect good cinematography can have on me like there could just be one particular shot or one camera angle in a movie and i feel like take me to church should be playing in the distance
You and I can roll down the windows
and tie back our hair,
preparing for the highway
to take us far from despair.
We’ll find the world in scribbles
on the tattered map we share
and then we’ll barrel down the street
and search our thoughts for prayer.
We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.
