excuse the emo moment

i've been listening to a lot of dashboard lately... and somehow it's inevitable to feel lonelier than you already are when their songs are all you're hearing for hours on end (i'm too lazy to change my playlist, sue me :P). those from the swiss army romance album of course. :P here are some lines that make me want to wallow in the loneliness that is my life right now. haha. :D

this is incredible
starving, insatiable
yes, this is love for the first time
well you'd like to think that you were invincible
yeah, well weren't we all once
before we felt lost for the first time
well this is the last time

- the brilliant dance*

sooner or later this cold
it's gonna break and our hands will be warm again
but all i want is not to need you now

- turpentine chaser

so i'll hit the pavement
it's gotta be better than waiting
and pushing you far away
'cause i'm scared
so i'll take my chances
and head on my way up there
'cause turning to you is like falling in love when you're ten
- living in your letters

it is colder than it ought to be in march
and i still have a day or two ahead of me
til i'll be heading home into your arms again
and the people here are asking after you
it doesn't make it easier to be away
i'd like to hire a plane
i'd see you in the morning when the day is fresh
i'm coming home again

- a plain morning

when i'm back from the road
and you're out on it
and i'm tired of this distance
and i believe it's over-rated
and this phone tag game is endless
the novelty is wearing
i'm hoping time will pass
without any assistance or convincing
road rules apply
there's so much action, you're getting busy
so i'll call your cellular phone
to tell you tv night was lonely without you
and so am i...
it seems our day keeps falling on a leap year

- shirts and gloves

and have i mentioned they make me cringe too? :P
