My hands all over you

Lately I’ve been listening a lot to Jack’s Mannequin, more specifically to the album ‘Everything in Transit’.

I can’t help but hum or sing those songs all day long.

It’s so weird how we can manage to rediscover our own feelings just by being close to some people that is special for us. It truly feels like you are living a brand new life when you are sure that you have never lived anything like what’s happening to you.

Sometimes it feels like her side is the only place in the world where I fit in, and sometimes I even scare myself by thinking that it’s getting harder to be anywhere if it’s far from there.

You can breathe, you can breathe now.
You can breathe but the air is running out.

It’s good to be alive

i’m coming home from my hardest year
i’m making plans not to make plans while i’m here
and this life has been no holiday, a complicated situation
i’m fine with all my memories
still i could use vacation

it’s christmas in california
and it’s hard to ignore that it feels like summer all the time
but i’ll take a west coast winter to remove my splinters

it’s good to be alive
it’s good to be alive

i’m coming home to the lights and buzz
streets look the same, still nothing’s as it was
this place is paradise i’m sure, here’s my reservation
i’ve gotten lost here once before
inside a good vibration

it’s christmas in california
and it’s hard to ignore that it feels like summer all the time
but i’ll take a west coast winter to remove my splinters

it’s good to be alive
it’s good to be alive
it’s good to be alive

and time, time it stops for no one
the seasons come and go and that’s just time
yeah time it stops for no one
the seasons keep on going
whether or not we’re blind

christmas in california
and it’s hard to ignore that it feels like summer all the time
but i’ll take a west coast winter to remove my splinters

it’s good to be alive
it’s good to be alive
it’s good to be alive

This song just sums up in a strange kind of way how I feel and how I felt during 2008.

Happy New Year!

Thanks to Nic for making me believe in this song even though I used to hate it.
