I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are all I can feel

 

Oh man, I think this is the saddest song ever and this isn’t something I take lightly, I love sad music.

I remember this being the first song I listened to over and over again, pining for a boy while looking at his picture in our yearbook. It didn’t end well. I spent months waiting to have a magical moment with him. The opportunity finally arose and it was great! He wanted to sit next to ME on the bus! It was probably love! I spent the first 20 minutes trying to look cute, while willing my hand not to get sweaty, just in case he wanted to grab it. He turned, looked at me and for a brief moment, I thought he was going to dispense with the talking and go straight to the kissing. Instead, he vomited all over my leg. Even worse, school uniforms meant it was bare leg. EVEN WORSE the driver cleaned it up with Windex and paper towel. 

I retired The Cure for quite a while after that.
