"It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul".

Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget
In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven
My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
I rest on the idea that i'll be forgiven
You chase all my fears away
With your love in my atmosphere
All confusion disappears
And nothing but your truth remains
Questions fade, you remain
You are color on a page of white, bright
Like eyes beneath black lights
Like a glowing city on the plains, you call
i'll do what you ask me to
for i believe that i belong
by your side for right or wrong
right or wrong it's got to be
always you and always me
won't you take me along
to be with you right or wrong
if it's wrong for me to love you
it can't be wrong for me to care
if you should say you love me
my life with you i'll share
right or wrong day by day
all m love -all the way
i believe that i belong
by your side for right or wrong
took such a long. long....time to complete the process
when we dare to care...we dare to LOVE
don't you want to stay here a little while
don't you want to hold each other tight?
don't you want to fall asleep with me tonight?
we can make forever feel this way
i don't just want to make love, i want to make love LAST
when you're up this high....it's a sad goodbye-

When it's over, I go numb And lose the feeling for a while All the pictures make me wonder If I'll ever find that smile I'm a sailboat tossed by wind and waves And somehow I'm staying afloat I'm a memory on you, but you'll forget me And this is my last try To make it through And you won't say a word I'm surprised you haven't heard I'm trying not to love you And I wonder if this cycle of mine Will ever end And I wonder why growing closer to love Is starting all over again I'm a regret, you can try to avoid me It hurts to know I'm around I'm a story and I don't know the ending I worry about that now

When people wonder why their relationship is so difficult, the underlying assumption is that it shouldn't be. There is an implied belief and expectation that a good relationship should come naturally, easily. This is a remnant of the myth of romantic love and its subsequent cultural conditions that "love is the answer" to all our life's struggles.
There seems to be a collective fantasy that "when the right person comes along", we will join together in perfect harmony and move through life together like paired ice skaters -- flowing flawlessly, effortlessly. Then when we stumble (have conflict) we worry, "What's wrong" Why is this so hard?"
Maybe the answer is, "There's nothing wrong. By their very nature relationships will be difficult, and sometimes very difficult." Here's why.
First, most of us desire relationships that are satisfying and meaningful before we have even developed a good relationship with ourselves. We somehow expect to be able to connect deeply with another person before we have connected even superficially with ourselves.
Culturally, self-reflection and exploration are seen as indulgent or wasteful, yet we are pressed to enter into emotionally committed relationships before we've given ourselves a chance to explore who we are, what we believe and feel at our cores, what our strengths and frailties may be. Often relationship struggles are the outer reflection of our inner struggle to find and define self.
Secondly, relationships are hard because they require balancing two basic and conflicting human drives: the need to be a separate, autonomous self (and the individual freedom this implies) with the need to be connected with other (and the compromise/negotiation this requires).
Many relationship issues revolve around this basic dilemma, we may err on the side of being too separate (distanced emotionally or physically) or of being too close (emotionally fused, Siamese-twin style). Finding and maintaining our own natural rhythm and movement in this "dance of relationship" is no easy task, and may require a lifetime to master.
Doesn't this all point to the reality of the inherent difficulty of relationships? Imagine if we began to anticipate and even embrace these struggles as the process by which we come to deeply know ourselves and others, to develop and mature toward our fullest capacities. What a shift in perspective!
Think of it this way: We are born into the river of life each in our own boat. You can't get into my boat and have your own life, and I can't get in your boat and have my life. Trouble arises when you try to climb in my boat or expect me to climb in yours. We each have to struggle to learn to paddle our own boats, and to negotiate the different currents of the river.
Sometimes, you may prefer to paddle by the bank while I prefer the middle, or you may be ready to go farther and faster before I am. But sometimes -- perhaps even often as the years go by -- we may find ourselves choosing to paddle close together, in a synchronized pace, toward a mutual destination.

I really hate to let this moment go,
touching your skin and your hair falling slow,
when your goodbye kiss, feels like this,
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
Don't you wanna hold each other tight?
Don't you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don't you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way,
Don't you wanna stay?
Let's take it slow I don't want to move too fast,
I don't wanna just make love, I wanna make love last,
When your on this high, its a sad goodbye
Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson
They say if you love someone, you should learn to let them go.
How can you let go of someone you're still so much in love with?
I guess understanding and selflessness is the key to such love.
An unconditional love.
And even if somewhere down the road that heart of yours doesn't see that you belong with me then I can only hope that my loving you opened the door to your new love.
In life, the decision of letting someone go doesn't end up right there. It seems only time can heal the battle in your heart. Sooner or later,our paths will cross again. But what if it
doesn't? Then one could only hope you've given and received enough love to carry you through this life.
Having faith? When you are hoping, it doesn't always necessarily
include faith. But when you are having faith, you are actually hoping at the
Even if you're gone. I'll still believe in us together.
I can only hope that what I've done is
plant a "seed of love" in the other person's heart.
I could then believe that love never really fails after all.
A little time is all we need.
The "seed of love" that we have left doesn't suddenly spring-up into a tree.
It's nurtured through time. And when the right time comes, it will return to
you in a manner you wouldn't have imagined.
the wrong time? Maybe we've only just begun. Maybe the best is yet to come.
"Letting go is not always easy."
In fact it can break you and cause you a lot of pain.
But letting go is not really the end of love; it is only the beginning of a greater love.
A love that time alone can understand.

How's life, tell me how's your family
I haven't seen them in a while
You've been good, busier then ever
We small talk, work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why
'Cause the last time I was yours
Is still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me your heart and I left it there to die
These days I haven't been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving
When your birthday passed and I didn't call!
I watched you laughing from the passenger side,
Realized I loved you in the fall
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye
I miss your soft skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right
And how you held me in your arms that August night,
The first time you ever saw me cry
Maybe this is wishful thinking
Probably mindless dreaming
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
So if the chain is on your door, I understand
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
I go back to december all the time
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd back to december, turn around and make it alright
I go back to december, turn around and change my own mind...

right love at the wrong time. Maybe that's God's way of letting us be selfless. To love beyond our control and without reciprocation. To love for the pure facet of love is selfless, unexplainable, undeniable and irrevocable. It can't be explained and can't be retracted, regardless of situation. Love freely and do so with all your heart. It's the best and worst feeling one can experience in this life. <3
