Outfits 5 years ago Say Anything
“Whichever way I go, I come back to the place you are”
This coat reminds me of the trench John Cusack wore in Say Anything. Do you remember that movie? For a long time I had a serious crush on John Cusack. In fact, in college I had almost every chick flick he’d ever starred in. I don’t know what it was about the way that heart throb held his boom box over his head that really did it for me. All I ever wanted was for the love of my life to surprise me in the middle of the night, holding a boom box over his head, blasting “our” song. Oh, and did I mention that “our” song would be “In Your Eyes?” just like the movie?
Your eyes . . . I am complete.
The thing is, once I grew up, I kind of realized that very rarely do these story book endings really happen nor to they put the icing on the cake to any sort of successful relationship. In fact, I learned that if you want romantic gestures to happen to you, you have to create them for yourself. There is always some truth to every quote of wisdom out there. When you hear “you get what you give,” they weren’t lying. I truly believe that the moment you put your pride aside and start to give toward someone, that you will start to receive the same effort in return.
One question: are you here ’cause you need someone, or ’cause you need me?… Forget it, I don’t care.
