Listen || The gradual progression of their feelings as the walls get torn down, the truth is made clear, and their relationship is forged.

1.// I know you don’t believe me when I believe in you. I know it could get much easier if we want it to 2.// You are a mirage in the distance that defies the heat of the desert. Should I believe in you?  3.// You say too late to start, got your heart in a headlock. I don’t believe any of it  4.// I know you care, I see it in the way that you stare as if there was trouble ahead and you knew it. You are just saving yourself when you hide it. 5.// I know what you want to say, I know it but can’t help feeling differently. I loved you, and I should have said it, but tell me just what has it ever meant? This is who I am. Sorry, but I can’t just go turn off how I feel. I know what I should do, but I just can’t walk away 6.// You don’t see what you possess, a beauty calm and clear. The shattered surface, so imperfect, is all that you believe 7.//  It’s a shame you don’t know what you’re running from, would it take the end of time to hear your heart’s false start? Stop pretending that you’re still breathing. 8.// When I’m around you I’m predictable, 'cause I believe in loving you at first sight. Oh you’re everything I’m wanting…will you welcome this confession? 9.// It was always you falling for me (It was always you) 10.// Light reflects from your shadow, it is more than I thought could exist. If someone believed me, they would be as in love with you as I am. And the end is unknown, but I think I’m ready as long as you’re with me.  11.// It’s a strange way of saying that I know I’m supposed to love you, I’m supposed to love you 12.// All I ever wanted was to be understood. You’ve been the only one who could, I could never turn my back on you. 13.// I’m feeling better ever since you know me. I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me. 14.// We kissed so warm that my skin, it smiled. I watched your face through my half-closed eyes. The face on the wall says, “Oh, you’ve changed — You’re a million miles from your desperate days” 15.// So I’ve dreamed since I met you. I’ve been hollowed by your body, I’ve been hypnotized by all you are 16.// Now, I’ve walked through hell for you, what’s an adventurer to do but rest these feet at home with you. 17.// You know me, you know everything about me now. My heart is in your hands and you know you could break it.

6:30pm- Getting ahead start on the weekend by annotating Toxic Archipelago: A History of Industrial Disease in Japan while listening to Chopin feat. Powerade. If midterms are also around the corner for you, best of luck! 🙌😃
