Sam Hunt just gets it. 

I don’t wanna steal your freedom.

I don’t wanna change your mind. 

I don’t have to make you love me.

I just wanna take your time.

I don’t wanna blow your phone up. 

I just wanna blow your mind.

I don’t have to take your heart. 

I just wanna take your time.

I walked to Montevallo.’
‘Forty miles?!’
'Forty-two,’ he corrected me. 'Well. Forty-two there. Forty-two back. Eight-two miles. No. Eight-four. Yes. Eighty-four miles in forty-five hours.’
'What the hell’s in Montevallo?’ I asked.
'Not much. I just walked til I got too cold, and then I turned around.’
—  ― John Green, Looking for Alaska

I don’t wanna steal your freedom
I don’t wanna change your mind
I don’t have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time


I don’t wanna blow your phone up
I just wanna blow your mind
I don’t have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

Montevallo Gothic:

You are looking for a parking place. You are always looking for a parking place. You have always been looking for a parking place. You realize suddenly that you do not own a car. 

There is always construction going on. You do not know what they are building. You are afraid to ask.

They say that Condie runs up and down the halls of Main over breaks, when no one is the dorms. You wonder, but never ask, who is running up and down the halls when you are there. 

You walked past King House at night once. Only once.

You avoid the shambling creatures who cross your path in the early months of the year. Others call them zombies. You call them the College Night Cabinet and Cast

The bricks rise up to trip you. The bricks know. They always know. 

You live in New Res because you think you will be safe from the ghosts. You do not realize until it is too late that it only makes it that much easier to hear your own.

For my publication design final we had to design a magazine about either Montevallo, where my university is located, or Birmingham. My partner and I decided to do Montevallo and we were the only ones. As I went around taking pictures of places I was reminded of the beauty of simple things.

As my teacher was flipping through our mock up she told me that I made Montevallo look “pretty” and all I could think was it wasn’t me, its already beautiful on its own.

I don’t know if you were looking at me or not
You probably smile like that all the time
And I don’t mean to bother you but
I couldn’t just walk by
And not say hi

And I know your name
‘Cause everybody in here knows your name
And you’re not looking for anything right now
So I don’t wanna come on strong
But don’t get me wrong

Your eyes are so intimidating
My heart is pounding but
It’s just a conversation
No girl I’m not wasted
You don’t know me
I don’t know you but I want to

I don’t wanna steal your freedom
I don’t wanna change your mind
I don’t have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time

I don’t wanna wreck your Friday
I ain’t gonna waste my lines
I don’t have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

And I know it starts with hello
And the next thing you know you’re trying to be nice
And some guys getting too close
Trying to pick you up
Trying to get you drunk

And I’m sure one of your friends is about to come over here
'Cause she’s supposed to save you from random guys
That talk too much and wanna stay too long
It’s the same old song and dance but I think you know it well

You could’ve rolled your eyes
Told me to go to hell
Could’ve walked away
But you’re still here
And I’m still here
Come on let’s see where it goes

I don’t wanna steal your freedom
I don’t wanna change your mind
I don’t have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time

I don’t have to meet your mother
We don’t have to cross that line
I don’t wanna steal your covers
I just wanna take your time

I don’t wanna go home with you

I just wanna be alone with you

I don’t wanna steal your freedom
I don’t wanna change your mind
I don’t have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time

I don’t wanna blow your phone up
I just wanna blow your mind
I don’t have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

No, I ain’t gotta call you baby
And I ain’t gotta call you mine
I don’t have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time
