girl growing

and a space for her to play in

this is how it works
you're young until you're not
you love until you don't
you try until you can't
you laugh until you cry
you cry until you laugh
and everyone must breathe
until their dying breath
no, this is how it works
you peer inside yourself
you take the things you like
and try to love the things you took
and then you take that love you made
and stick it into some
someone else's heart
pumping someone else's blood
and walking arm in arm
you hope it don't get harmed
but even if it does
you'll just do it all again

'on the radio'

i never loved nobody fully
always one foot on the ground
and by protecting my heart truly
i got lost, in the sounds
i hear in my mind
all of these voices
i hear in my mind
all of these words
i hear in my mind
all of this music
and it breaks my heart

suppose i never ever met you
suppose we'd never fell in love,
suppose i never ever let you,
kiss me so sweet and so soft
suppose i never ever saw you
suppose you never ever called
suppose i kept on singing love songs,
just to break my own fall
-regina spektor
my friend bekah introduced me to her.
she's wonderful.
go buy her c.d. 'begin to hope'
