Journey ~ Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)

Here we stand
Worlds apart
Hearts broken in two, two, two
Sleepless nights
Losing ground
I’m reaching for you, you, you

Feelin’ that it’s gone
Can’t change your mind
If we can’t go on
To survive the tide
Love divides

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

“I always think of Tony when I hear the song Separate Ways (Worlds Apart). I imagine I’m an ex-girlfriend who’s stayed on good terms with him, and one night we’re drinking in his garage when this song comes on. I feel him standing right behind me, his warm breath on my neck. When I turn around, he kisses me hard, pushing me up against the nearest surface. It’s a mad scramble for zippers and buttons, until we’re both half-dressed and sweaty and he’s pounding me hard against the hood of a car.”

Percy was widely known across the school as a player, having had countless girlfriends and boyfriends and one night stands, always searching for feeling.

Someday, love will find you

He did plan on settling down eventually, when he finally found something that was real to him. But a few nights ago was the closest he came to that feeling.

Break those chains that bind you

Percy was stuck, unable to move on from that one night he shared with Nico di Angelo. Usually he didn’t give a second thought to anything, a new lover every night. But there was something different about Nico.

True love won’t desert you

He couldn’t get rid of these knew feelings that would not leave him alone. Di Angelo’s dark eyes haunted him, his fingers itched to run along his pale skin, his lips were thirsty for the taste of Nico’s.

Know that I still love you

Whenever Percy saw Nico in the halls at school, he always looked away quickly. But he wanted to let him know, to make him know, that he still remembered every moment they shared, that these moments were the only thing keeping him alive.

One night will remind you

All he wanted was Nico in his arms again, even if it was just once more. He wanted to feel the way he did that night. He wanted to remember what it was like to feel secure, united, loved.

But we touched and went our separate ways
