"Patron Saint" by Regina Spektor

She’s been skipping days, spilling her drinks in the sink 
and you know, she’s never coming home—never coming home again 
but when when when she open her eyes eyes eyes 
beyond the chipping paint through the windowpane 
lies lies lies 
her patron saint, broken and lame 
and absolutely insane for learning that true love exists 
so darling, let go of her hand

Dear Thom:

We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.

First — if you are in love — that’s a good thing — that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.

Second — There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.

You say this is not puppy love. If you feel so deeply — of course it isn’t puppy love.

But I don’t think you were asking me what you feel. You know better than anyone. What you wanted me to help you with is what to do about it — and that I can tell you.

Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.

The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.

If you love someone — there is no possible harm in saying so — only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.

Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.

It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another — but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.

Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I’m glad you have it.

We will be glad to meet Susan. She will be very welcome. But Elaine will make all such arrangements because that is her province and she will be very glad to. She knows about love too and maybe she can give you more help than I can.

And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

Love,

Fa

I know I’m unloveable
You don’t have to tell me
I don’t have much in my life
But take it’s yours
I don’t have much in my life
But take it’s yours

I know I’m unloveable
You don’t have to tell me
Message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear

I don’t have much in my life
But take it - it’s yours

I know I’m unloveable
You don’t have to tell me
For, message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear
Message received

I don’t have much in my life
But take it - it’s yours

I wear black on the outside
Because black is how I feel on the inside
I wear black on the outside
Because black is how I feel on the inside

And if I seem a little strange
Well, that’s because I am
And if I seem a little strange
That’s because I am

But I know that you would like me
If only you could see me
If only you could meet me

I don’t have much in my life
But take it - it’s yours
I don’t have much in my life
But take it - it’s yours

hola, vine a dar lástima

hola, vine a dar lástima

i’m drowning here and you’re describing the water

eso, you never said you were deep (but you are profoundly shallow). creo que no me entendés y que me importás más vos a mí que yo a vos. duele. ouch. un título no es nada.
