Music is the best and worst thing. I concern myself so much with my current state of mind that I get lost in the music I relate to. Or I turn it into something to relate to.

It's mystifying how a song can have a meaning one day and a completely different meaning the next. It can evoke something in you that you never saw.

A love song one week could make your heart sing along and the next week make it cry along.

I don't know if I should feel glad or pathetic finding the only relatable thing to lyrics being my dog ..

"Home is where ever I'm with you." - Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
"You suddenly complete me." - The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I guess I should be grateful I at least have something to deflect onto .. Or someone, I suppose.

Love is a battlefield ..

And someone to cuddle with.


ps. sorry, i've been MIA ..

I feel the same way about my pup. And about music.

I just heard the song The Challengers by The New Pornographers again and remembered how it instantly makes me weepy. Especially the line, "whatever the mess you are, you're mine."
