When life gives me a reason to cry, I'll show life that I have 1000 reasons to smile.

Do you see this wall? It's like plexiglass.
Your heart is gold, my heart is brass.
You can't see through... I'm on the other side.
Even if we wanted to, we couldn't collide.
But I pound on the glass, trying to break through.
I would shatter my heart trying to get to you.
It's almost a crime, the way you're stealing my heart.
You keep on pulling, but the wall won't break apart.
Just match your hand up with mine, my heart will smile.
Maybe we can be together like this for a while?
I just wish someone could tell me why I always have to wait.
Because won't there always be plexiglass between fate?

Ever tried to be with the person you loved... but there were boundaries? Sometimes when you press your hand against the glass, you can feel the heat of someone's hand on the other side. This is fate creating a wall.

"I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

this really spoke to me. you have some real talent. keep it up.
