There's nothing you can sing that can't be sung.

LOVE IS ALL ANYONE WRITES ABOUT. AND, SEE, I REALLY LIKE TO WRITE, BUT I DON'T REMEMBER IF I'VE EVER BEEN IN LOVE. I THINK I'VE COME CLOSE TO IT A FEW TIMES. BUT IT'S FAR AWAY NOW. AND NOW I HAVE OVALTINE FOR BREAKFAST EVERY MORNING AND I TRY TO WRITE SONGS AND I KISS A LOT OF PEOPLE AND SLEEP IN.
I GUESS EMILY DICKINSON WAS NEVER IN LOVE BECAUSE SHE NEVER LEFT HER HOUSE, BUT SHE WROTE ABOUT IT WELL ENOUGH.
THIS TOWN IS FULL OF PEOPLE IN LOVE. FULL OF FIANC√ČES AND MARRIAGES AND BABIES AND LIFE.
I'D LIKE TO BE A PART OF IT ALL. BUT I'D ALSO LIKE TO DECLARE MY MAJOR.
I LOVE...FOOD. AND THE GOSPEL. AND MY FAMILY. AND MUSIC. AND PEOPLE IN GENERAL. I LOVE A LOT. BUT TO BE IN LOVE...I CAN'T REMEMBER. MAYBE IVE NEVER BEEN OLD ENOUGH FOR THAT KIND OF THING?
MY HEART WANTED TO TYPE THIS OUT IN CAPITAL LETTERS. IT LOOKS LIKE A TYPEWRITER DOESN'T IT? WELL...ONE THAT ONLY DOES CAPITALS I GUESS...
NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, I'M PRETTY SURE TYPEWRITERS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO DIFFERENTIATE.
MAYBE IT'S A TELEGRAM...YES. THIS BLOG LOOKS LIKE A TELEGRAM. STOP.

I don't know. I thought I was in love before. Maybe I was. But this time feels different; it feels more "right." Like it's somehow what it's supposed to be. So maybe you've been in love. You'll probably be in love again. But it'll feel different every time. And it'll feel "right" when it's "right."

That's my "wise" "advice"
Like it?
