this song grows on you

It’s that halfway point between being straight up jealous and not wanting to be and simply cause your personal life experience has taught you that sometimes people have a habit of moving on or simply growing tired of you. It’s distinguishing between them that’s hard to do.
—  Excerpt from a story I’ll never write #763
Zayn brings his sinuous brand of R&B to the dancehall-inspired “Still Got Time,” a tropical bop that makes for an easy, summery listen. With an appearance from PARTYNEXTDOOR to add texture to the low-key party tune, Zayn promises all the single ladies out there that they’ve “still got time” to find love — perhaps a subtle nod to his early One Direction fans as they grow up right alongside him.

I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I’ll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

—  Robbie Hart, The Wedding Singer

Bolded/Italics: Song Lyrics

Italics: Memories

She said, I was seven and you were nine. I looked at you like the stars that shined in the sky, the pretty lights.

You stood behind your parents, trying to make yourself invisible, as your parents spoke to their good friend Rachel Hamilton. A young boy, two years older than you, stood beside and he looked quite bored.

“Mom, can’t I go back inside?” he complained.

“Oh, Alex, why don’t you take (y/n) to the backyard. The two of you can play while the adults talk.” she suggested, giving Alex a push towards you as your parents pushed you to Alex.

Alex grabbed your hand and dragged you to the backyard where a life-long friendship formed. He looked at you and sized you up and hoped you didn’t mind running around and getting dirty. You didn’t.

“I just want you to know that if you try to make me do anything girly, I’ll beat you up.” Alex threatened, as he tried act menacing.

“No you won’t.” you stated, looking into his eyes.

He started at you in shock. “Oh yeah? What makes you think that?”

“You don’t seem mean or icky like the boys at school.” you admitted, smiling slightly.

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us growing up and falling in love, and our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes and said oh my my my.

While you and Alex ran around, playing hide and seek, your parents watched fondly from afar. It was silent until your father spoke up.

“You know, I think I see the beginning of a relationship. I’ll bet you that those two grow up and get married.” you father promised, a fingered pointed at your mother and Alexander’s.

The two women just rolled their eyes and laughed, but they thought about the possibility. It would be a could match. Right?

Take me back when our world was one block wide. I dared you kissed me and ran when you tried.

As that week progressed, you and Alex spent every free minute together. It wasn’t uncommon if you ended up staying for dinner at his house or vice-versa.

One day, the two of you sat inside and were talking about school. Since Alex was in fourth grade, and you were only in second grade, you loved to here the stories of what went on in his classroom. Today, he was telling you had this girl Jasmine kissed a boy named Anthony.

“And then-”

“Alex.” you interrupted and looked straight into his eyes. “Kiss me.” you dared and wondered if he would actually do so.

He sat down for a moment and you thought he wasn’t going to accept the dare. However, you were caught off guard when Alex stepped closer to you, lips puckered. You squealed and ran away from him.

“No, Alex, don’t. Please.” you laughed, while running outside, trying to escape the boy trying to kiss you.

Oh if you could have only stayed in that time when your entire world was a block wide.

Well, I was sixteen when suddenly I wasn’t that little girl you used to see.

What you want to be when you grow up? 

“Some of us have to grow up sometimes
And so, if I have to I’m gonna leave you behind”

- Grow Up, Paramore

i can’t believe that it took me 3 years to realize why that one direction song always gave me a weird déjà vu-like feeling. it just. sounds a lot like baba o’riley, by the who. enough to make people wonder if it’s plagiarizing it.


Imagine being close friends with Oliver as teenagers but a falling out causes you to grow apart.

**Based off of Song for a Friend by Jason Mraz**

Oliver had been your best friend when you were younger. When you were both naive and innocent. He had been your entire world. You still remembered how he had called you magic. He had made you laugh. He had reminded you to love yourself, even if it felt like nobody else did. He had helped you learn how to speak without mumbling because talking clearly was a sign of confidence. He had taught you that life was short and you needed to make the most of it and never submit to a world that was all too eager to hurt people like you.

Then he’d started messing around with Sara and Laurel and you had reluctantly decided to take a step back. Well, more accurately, your parents decided it was time you focused on your schoolwork instead of gallivanting around Starling City with Oliver Queen. So you had distanced yourself. Not spending time with him because almost second nature.

Then he disappeared.

Of course, you had mourned. Maybe the two of you hadn’t been close at the time of the storm, but he had still been your friend. You would have given anything to have him back, to get a second chance.

And then, against all odds, you got one.


The man turned to face you, his expression turning to shock. “[f/n]?”

You flashed a tired grin and held out your arms, “Don’t I get a hug?”

Oliver complied, wrapping his arms around you tightly. “I missed you,” he mumbled, pulling away to get a good look at you.

You wiped tears from your eyes, “I missed you too, Olly. You’ve changed so much. I wish we could just go back-”

“To the way things were before?” Oliver finished, offering an exhausted smile of his own. “I know the feeling.”

“Hey, I’ve got an idea. Let’s take a break from today and head back to that old garage we used to hang out in. Life’s short, and we’ve got a lot to catch up on.”
