"WISH YOU WERE HERE" SONG PREFERENCE
FIND EVERYTHING WE HAVE WRITTEN HERE
Gone away are the golden days
Just a page in my diary
sorting through your stuff, deciding on what to leave behind in your parents
house and what you would take with you to your own apartment. This wasn’t the
first time you were moving out, but it was the first time you were going to
live all on your own. Unlike the first time, leaving seemed heavy, like
something you’d rather avoid even though you know it’s what you have to do.
a box from underneath your bed and looked though everything it contained, when
you laid your eyes on your old diary. Curious as you were, you opened it and
scanned through the pages. Looking at the date, the last time you wrote in it
was three years ago, just before you and Luke broke up.
all the pages, getting overwhelmed by how happy you and Luke were just before
everything came crashing down. You closed the book and stuffed it in another
box, one you were going to take with you. It still hurt to think about Luke,
even after all those years, but it felt good to keep the diary because you
could look back on the happy days you spend together. And despite of everything
that happened, those memories could still bring a smile to your face.
Memories they’re following me like a shadow now
like to talk about the things that hurt him, he’d rather avoid thinking about
it. Unfortunately for him, ignored feelings have a way of coming back when you
least expect them. Everywhere around him he saw little things that reminded him
of you, and it drove him absolutely insane. He wanted to forget all about you
and about the breakup that caused him more pain than he could ever admit to
anyone, even to himself.
And I know all the facts
I’m still in love with who I wish you were
been in complete denial for years. He didn’t want to admit that the only girl
he ever loved didn’t feel the same way in return. Instead, she used him to get
herself a career in the show business, and she dumped him as soon as she did.
Even after he found out about the truth, he couldn’t help but defend her. He
couldn’t get over her, he couldn’t wrap his mind around the fact that she
played pretend for years, and how good she was at doing so.
when I’ll finally see your shallow heart
For what it is
Cause I don’t want to keep on believing in illusions
It was very
difficult for Ashton to adjust the way he felt about someone, especially if he
loved them at some point. He wanted to be able to change his view, he wanted to
see people for who they really were, not for who his naivety made him believe
they were like. He struggled with that a lot, since he didn’t want to be
swallowed by negative opinions on people, even though sometimes there was no
other way to see them.
I don’t think this even makes sense, especially Ashton’s part lol.
