Peeps, here’s your batman-with-his-fists Friday jam. I know I’ve said this before but I absolutely hated songs like this in another life. Jams like this would come on when I was a teenager or in my 20s and I’d turn that shit off.
I was pretty dumb and pretty snotty when it came to music. But I guess more than that I’d never felt the magic with another person they were singing in their ballads. My gut reaction was then to always condemn their melodies. Fuck them guys like Coldplay.
And then after my first divorce I learned that being alone was my choice. It wasn’t fate or destiny. It was my shitty attitude.
So in the here-and-now I know what they’re talking about. I’ve felt something “just like this” and it changed everything.
If you never have felt a love song then don’t worry. That feeling’s out there. It may be just around the corner. A person you may or may not know is waiting, is looking for you, too.
But first don’t be an all around jerk. Throw away your bullshit and open yourself up to nonfictional fairy tales. There’s a love song with your name on it. Somebody’s holding out for a magical adventure. Just with you.
Make sure you’re ready for them.
And then hold their hand when you run away together.
