Anyone Else But You

This song by the Moldy Peaches was used in two of my favourite movies ever. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Juno. They both talk of love in the most peculiar yet honest of circumstances and they both shook the hell out of me when I first saw them. I really hope Love turns out to be like that for me, when it finally gets here. Just like these two movies. And just like this gorgeous song. So I guess now what remains to be seen is whether what I got in my hands right now is love or Love...

Here is the song in Juno:


and here it is in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind:


Finally here is the full version of the song and the lyrics for you to sing along to. Enjoy!


You're a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on your back is the latest trend
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Here is the church and here is the steeple
We sure are cute for two ugly people
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
So why can't, you forgive me?
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I will find my niche in your car
With my mp3 DVD rumple-packed guitar
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu du

Up up down down left right left right B A start
Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

You are always trying to keep it real
I'm in love with how you feel
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

We both have shiny happy fits of rage
You want more fans, I want more stage
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Don Quixote was a steel driving man
My name is Adam I'm your biggest fan
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Squinched up your face and did a dance
You shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu
Du du du du du du dudu du
But you

Does Lightning Strike More Than Once In The Same Spot?

What do you do when you feel you've been struck down by lightning, yet the lightning itself has no other apparent interest in you other than an ability to scorch you down by it's sheer power and let you know it really enjoys your presence?

It's a strange compliment to know that lightning likes to be around you, and who isn't charmed by such divine interest to their person? I know I am. Charmed my pants off, so to speak.

But much like the tale of the frog and the scorpion who crossed the river, lightning is beautiful, charming, appealing, hell it can transform a person's whole life-perspective with its inner world of magic. Yet is still does, and always will hold the power to scorch you down to mere ashes, if you forget your place and you dare to underestimate its "electric touch". It's in its nature. It can't help but be what it is, to fulfill its purpose in life. Gorgeous but dangerous. Life changing yet deadly.

If you choose to merely watch it from a far away spot, then you can't help but fall for it's random shining bolts, the magical shapes it scars on the heavens and on your heart. You can't easily fight those emotions of powerless attraction to its glow, much like the moth is charmed by a flame.

I am drawn to this lightning exactly like the proverbial moth. And much like the moth, I am in an equally clear and present dangerous dilemma. If I keep my distance, I am bound to eventually demystify this ancient power, and that I am certain of. In fact if I go down that road, I feel secure in knowing I will never come back to it and I will be safe from harm, ready to move on with my life (until next time).

However, this is something I am not prepared to do just yet. It's been a while since I came near such lightning, and this particular one, is like no other I've ever discovered in my life. There are a million reasons why I say that (which are neither here, nor there). It feels nearly impossible to be able to choose to go down this path right now. I can't ignore the powers of my subconscious and/or my heart's desires. I learned that lesson long ago, so I know when my mind should shut the fuck up.

If on the other hand I choose to approach this creature of mystery and let myself "play" near the lightning's fire, I stand liable to lose much more than a temporary ability to see due to its intense light. I may well lose everything I hold dear to me in the process. My balance, my peace of mind, my fragile wall of sand that I call my emotions. Everything.

People say you shouldn't expect to gain anything ever in life if you are not prepared to lose everything in the process. That is oh so true. I learned that lesson too, the hard way.

That however is a fucking hard thing to do, when your body is already covered with burns that similar fatal attractions like this one have already left on your skin so many times before.

Play with fire or stay in the cold? No-one can really help me with this choice.

I just wonder what the lightning would say if it could actually see all those scars...

It's A Hard Life - Queen

Keeping with the current theme of saying it all with music, no further comment is really necessary...



I don't want my freedom
There's no reason for living with a broken heart
This is a tricky situation, I've only got myself to blame
It's just a simple fact of life, It can happen to anyone
You win - you lose
It's a chance you have to take with love
Oh yeah - I fell in love
And now you say it's over and I'm falling apart

It's a hard life, to be true lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It's a long hard fight, to learn to care for each other
To trust in one another right from the start
When you're in love

I try and mend the broken pieces, I try to fight back the tears
They say it's just a state of mind, But it happens to everyone
How it hurts - deep inside
When your love has cut you down to size
Life is tough - on your own
Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies
And I'm waiting for love

Yes it's a hard life, two lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It's a long hard fight, to learn to care for each other
To trust in one another - right from the start
When you're in love

Yes it's a hard life
In a world that's filled with sorrow
There are people searching for love in every way
It's a long hard fight, But I'll always live for tomorrow
I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love
Yes I did it for love (for love) oh I did it for love

Way Back Into Love (Music & Lyrics OST)

There are times when my words are just too much, and instead a corny song says it all much better than I ever could. So here's me shutting up, while you get to hear what I wanna tell you :-)



I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need 'em again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light 

Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end.
