this album never fails me

“From day one I dreamed about getting out,
But not forgetting about,
How my worst fears are letting out.
He said, why put a new address,
On the same old loneliness,
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die,
Now talking’s just a waste of breath,
And living’s just a waste of death,
And why put a new address,
On the same old loneliness,
And this is you and me,
And me and you,
Until we’ve got nothing left.”
-Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying (Do Your Best To Save Scene and Stop Going To Shows)

Happy 12th anniversary to From Under The Cork Tree! This album has never failed to absolutely inspire me in my journey to becoming a musician myself, either through Pete’s lyrical work or through the music itself. I can’t believe it’s been 12 years and can’t wait to listen to it for another 12 more, having grown up with the amazing album on repeat with my sisters (and listen and listen and listen to it, I mean). And to think Fall Out Boy is still going strong and about to drop an album, thanks so much to Andy, Joe, Patrick, and Pete, for defining me when even I myself failed to.

“We’re the therapists pumping through your speakers.”
-Sophomore Slump or Comeback of the Year

To one hell of an iconic album.

taylorswift HI I DONT KNOW HOW TO TUMBLR BUT I HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO GIVE YOU. well hello my name is Taylor (hey). I cannot put into words how much you mean to me. Seriously I cannot. You have taught me so much in this crazy roller coaster of idolizing you of 7 years. I look up to you for so many different things. You taught me to be fearless an to never let others bring me down. I hope one day I can be half as courageous as you. People talk and I’ll use that as fuel to help me grow stronger. I’ve learned that from you. Thank you. You have given me light on my darkest days when no one else was around, you were. Even though you have no idea who I am. I hope one day I can repeat all this to you in person but for now, this tumblr post shall do, which by the way took me like 22 minutes to figure out how to write. With this new album out, which has taken over my life (not complaining) you seriously never stop failing to amaze me. This album is gold. Pure. Gold. I love you to the moon an back Taylor. Never stop smiling. Never stop shining. Never stop being courageous.
