More than you, more than you know...

Now that it's all said and done,
I can't believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down,
Like an old abandoned house.
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath.
I fell too far, was in way too deep.
Guess I let you get the best of me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
And I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.
And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.

Well, I never saw it coming.
And I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,

I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

Well, I never saw it coming.
And I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.

Well, I never saw it coming.
And I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
Well I'm putting my heart back together,
'Cause I got over you.
Well I got over you.
I got over you.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

The Smallishness

Zoom out! Zoom out until the globe becomes a small tennis ball. And on the ball live billions of people. Walking, running, eating, smiling, laughing...crying, bleeding, screaming, dying...or worse, getting heartbroken.

You too lie on the ball...wondering how it revolves around you. But open your eyes and look at the ball. The realization will come. It doesn't.

And so who cares if you bleed? Who cares if you cry? It happens every day. It happens to millions everyday. Nobody will come to wipe your tears. You're the one who has to change, who has to move on. You're the one who will have to fight...and win.

Most of us are heroes in our eyes. And rightly so. For its this sense of security and achievement that gives us reason to live. Everybody you meet everyday must've suffered, must've seen sleepless nights. They must've put their blood, sweat and tears into something....and still lost. Never judge a book by its cover.

And now that its happening to you, zoom out. And look at that small green circular thing. Your pain will look small. You will feel silly. You will get up. You will smile. And with that shake of your head, you will move on. You will survive. You will live.
