When It Rains On This Side Of Town It Touches Everything

Wednesday: "Today’s big issue often turns out to be tomorrow’s minor matter. And vice versa. We all understand this in principle. We are philosophical and worldly wise enough to recognise the truth of that statement. What we can’t always do quite so easily, though, is tell which particular factor is going to become more, or less, important. So generally, we stick with the obvious. Mercury, as it now slips out of your sign, is urging you to think again about something you once felt very sure of. Reconsider and you will soon spot the changing trend."
 
 
Beautiful Disaster
Jon McLaughlin
Indiana (2007)
 
She loves her Momma’s lemonade, hates the sounds that goodbyes make
She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her
She swears there’s no difference between the lies and compliments
It’s all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she’s not good enough
The pictures that she sees makes her cry

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s giving boys what they want, trying to act so nonchalant
Afraid to see that she’s lost her direction
She never stays the same for long, assuming that she’ll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfection
She’s not a drama queen, she doesn’t wanna feel this way
Only 17 and tired, yeah

She would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s just the way she is but no one’s told her that’s okay

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home
She just needs someone to take her home

When you hear opportunity knocking,
aren’t you ever scared that if you don’t answer it now,
it will stop knocking before you do?
 
I’m actually having a pretty great day. Acknowledging my problem has really helped to put some things into a positive perspective. Alas, it has also made me feel so happy, so excited, and so impulsive. Have you ever wanted to do something, more than anything else, but rationalized all of the reasons why you can’t, or shouldn’t, or should wait? Have you ever had the urge to just tell rationality to take a hike and just do it because you wanted it enough? In life, we are the only ones who ultimately stop ourselves from achieving what we’re wishing for. I’ve been told this in the many different ways it could be applied, and- HUZZAH! For the first time I’m the one saying it– what a liberating thing! I want to be irrational! I want to be impulsive and spontaneous and ultimately romantic! I want to stop rationalizing away all of the things I want out of life! I’m shouting my bliss, happiness and total freedom of choice from the rooftops! I am ready, I am ready, I am ready, I am. But I hear it loud and clear: in my mind, its you telling me that only fools rush in…
