My first concert here in Melbourne, and it was fantastic. The Script have always been on the top of my iTunes playlist, and of course the exceptionally good looking Danny! At least I made sure that I wasn’t the one yelling “Marry Me Danny!” or “I wanna have your babies” wtf like what someone standing behind me did. I guess its quite a different experience compared to the concerts held in Malaysia, better acoustic settings & you don’t sweat which is definitely a major plus point! Photos taken via iPhone.
Here’s The Script LIVE in Melbourne 2011.
You touch these tired eyes of mine
And map my face out line by line
And somehow growing old feels fine
I listen close for I’m not smart
You wrap your thoughts in works of art
And they’re hanging on the walls of my heart.
I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
And though my edges may be rough
I never feel I’m quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I’m yours.
I’ve refrained myself from keeping my ass on the chair to write this but there’s obviously a force so strong thats urging me to write this down. You know how I’ve always said that this is probably the most personal space that I own that is completely mine,and I’d like to look back someday, even if its to wonder.
I do feel a tad bit handicapped after I broke up with the Keeper, kinda losing the ability to write about how I feel about love and its almost as if my beliefs were shaken.Writing about it again does feel as if I’m licking ‘em old wounds, repeating sentences and lines I’ve once said; how we must always believe that love will always find its way even when you’re at the darkest point in your life. Knowing how there isn’t quite a thing close to a perfect fairy-tale, I didn’t want to shatter hopes that forever may not exist; I didn’t want to admit the hurt that I wanted nothing short of forever.
Perhaps its true that people walk in and out of our lives for a reason, to serve some sort of purpose that strengthens some bolts and nuts to reinforce some structures in our yet to be built skyscrapers. You have no idea how wrecking it can feel to build something and watch it fall right in front of your eyes, but thats all in the past.
Truth is, I’m a far cry away from anywhere I want to be. There’s this void thats yet to be filled,and I’m keeping it protected for now. Many have knocked on doors,and its often left unanswered; because I’m in the search for something that makes me go “what are the odds?” and obviously make your heart skip a beat. You know how falling in love makes you feel helpless, it makes you weak not in that typical way; but in ways that warmth that breathes live into that empty void inside. Its that one smile that lives in your memory like an accidental brain imprint wtf; or perhaps even a look in the eyes that arrests you right that moment.
Fear and courage are brothers; being afraid but going on anyhow.
If it helps to know, at least I’m smiling again.
