Prolonged Intermission

In which the author experiences an inability to articulate herself, thus expressing emotions and turmoil via choice lyrics. Potentially for some time ( days/weeks…months?)

Today’s mood: hopeful melancholia

Here’s a story of a girl
Who grew up lost and lonely.
Thinking love was fairytale,
And trouble was made only
For me.

Even in the darkness
Every colour can be found,
And every day of rain brings water
Flowing to things
Growing in the ground.

Intermission: Lyrics

‘You were blessed by a different kind of inner view:
It’s all magnified.
The highs would make you fly,
And the lows make you want to die.
And I was once there,
Hanging from that very ledge where you are standing.
So I know, I know, I know,
It’s easier to let go. ‘


-Nightminds / Missy Higgins



‘There were sounds in my head,
Little voices whispering
That I should go and this should end,
Oh, and I found myself listening.’


-Where I stood / Missy Higgins



‘But that’s not how I feel about you,
In fact I never wanna see you at all.
So maybe I’ll inject gasoline in my eye,
And hold a lighter to my eyeball.’


-I’d Rather / Hank Green & The Perfect Strangers



‘You’re coming round too late,
I’ve taken off my face,
And you won’t like it.
I haven’t seen anyone in days,
But it’s best this way,
You see I don’t like it.
Don’t want to be anyone again.’


-Low Blows / Meg Mac
