it's the only way to lose ourselves
Let's journey before sunrise, through carafes of roses and cobble-stoned streets, and strains of German we don't understand. Let's drink red wine from the bottle and toast our enlightened, philosophical minds. Let's sing songs of ghosts and trip our way through our fears. Let's throw off our terror and play telephone and lounge on plush cushions, revel in our anonymity and kisses at great heights and discuss paintings' edges dissolving into mist. Let's appreciate angular architecture (angels in the architecture) and be poems leaning on streetlamps. No delusions. I pledge my transience to you by violin songbursts and hazy focus. Graze my cheekbone with your whisper-soft face, and then leave me. Let's be dreamy slackers for a day, no questions, nobody to answer to but us and this and yes.
"Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash / Oh baby with your pretty face / Drop a tear in my wineglass / Look at those big eyes / See what you mean to me / Sweet-cakes and milkshakes / I'm a delusion angel / I'm a fantasy parade / I want you to know what I think / Don't want you to guess anymore / You have no idea where I came from / We have no idea where we're going / Lodged in life / Like branches in a river/ Flowing downstream / Caught in the current / I carry you / You'll carry me / That's how it could be / Don't you know me? / Don't you know me by now?"
"I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?"
“You need to resign yourself to the awkwardness of life. Only if you find peace within yourself will you find true connection with others...You are both stars, don’t forget it. When the stars exploded billions of years ago, they formed everything that is this world. Everything we know is stardust. So, don’t forget, you are stardust.”
Oh let not time deceive you, you cannot conquer time.
(but that's okay)
