reblogged from : falling is like this

One of the best things about Christmastime in LA is that a horn quartet from Salvation Army plays music at the west end of Union Station every morning. They just stand at the end of the tunnel while rush hour commuters shuffle, stroll, or speedwalk by. Of course, they are there for donations, but they play regardless of how much they get paid and it makes me smile whenever I get the auditory reminder that they will be at the end of the hall when I get there.

“ Do you realize that everyone you know, someday, will die?
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes,
Let them know you realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world going ‘round
— The Flaming Lips, “Do You Realize?”

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, "Home"

  • Alexander: Well, there's something I never told you about that night.
  • Jade: What didn't you tell me?
  • Alexander: While you were in the backseat, smoking a cigarette, you thought it was going to be your last. I was falling deep... deeply in love with you... and I never told you 'til just now.

“ It could all be so simple
But you’d rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars

Sensitive. Yes, it’s true.
Alligator tears, cried over you.

Run around on me?
I’d sooner die without.

Come back to kiss my dear
Come back to face my fears
It can’t be worse than war

Lean into the bell and press
You’re in a brand new dress I’ve never seen before
But then you say
That you gave your heart away

But then you say
That I shouldn’t have returned
So I turn my face
And go
