i don't want you to save me. i want you to stand by my side as i save myself.
there are some people who meet that somebody that they can never stop loving, no matter how hard they try. i wouldn't expect you to understand that or even believe it, but trust me, there are some loves that don't go away. and maybe that makes them crazy, but we all should be lucky enough to end up with somebody who has a little of that insanity, someone who never lets go, someone who cherishes you forever.
sometimes in life you don't always feel like a winner, but that doesn't mean you
are not a winner, you want to be like yourself. i want my fans to know it's okay.

so this is when we finally learn the real meaning of change. you do the things you used to be against, you befriend the people you used to hate. you will learn what it is like to have your heart broken, to lose a friend that truly meant something to you. and to feel as if everything is really falling apart. maybe this is just what growing up is.
people don't look at your personality first. people judge you automatically by your looks and then try to get to know your personality. but the second they don't like your looks, they don't get to know you.
don't you hate the feeling when your throat hurts from all the tears you are holding back and you can't control the words coming out of your mouth? there are just too many things you haven't said.
just remember that sometimes, the way you think about a person isn't the way they actually are.

when you lose somebody, you think you have lost the whole world as well. but this is not the way things turn out in the end. eventually, you pick yourself up and look out the window and once you do, you see everything that was there before the world ended is out there, still. there are the same apple trees, and the same song birds. and over our heads, the same very sky that shines like heaven. so far above us, that we can never hope to reach such heights.
we just might work out fine because i love you enough to let you give the
pain that i want. and when you do, i just might fuck you enough to love you.
been trying hard not to get into trouble but i got a war in my mind.

i won't fight to stay when all you want for me to do is leave. i am not going to miss you when you don't miss me. i am not going to care when you don't at all. i am just not going to try anymore. you have kept my hopes up for much too long . it is about time they come crashing back down to earth. it is time i start thinking about myself again and not you. it is time i be strong. it is time i let you go. it is about time i be happy. it is about time i leave you alone.
sure - you wish you did some things differently, but there is no sense in
becoming burdened with regret over things you have no power to change.
sometimes, we love people so much, that we have to be numb to it,
because if we actually felt how much we really love them, it would kill us.
you deserve to be with somebody who makes you happy. somebody
who doesn't complicate your life. somebody who won't hurt you.
peace - it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or
hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
