For the past many many months - I've been fixated by this song.

Its not my favourite PJ song - that goes to Last kiss.

Not my second - that goes to Jeremy.

Or my third - that goes to Alive.

But I was still fixated by her...

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything?
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can, drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything?
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all that I'll be...yeah...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine

But then, in the past few weeks - another song has taken over.

Now my favourite Coldplay song.

Over Clocks, Scientist, Yellow, Trouble, Shiver.

Ironically, the first time I heard this song was at a Coldplay concert in DC late 2005, when I spent most of the concert with a phonecall..

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
and the tears come streaming down your face
when you lose something you can't replace
when you love some one but it goes to waste
could it be worse?
High up above or down below
When you too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Shout out to all those who tried to fix me in the past many many months..

I'm back

Great news! And thanks for showing the light. (since our guinea pig order in life has now reversed.)

Black is my favorite Pearl Jam song though.

(And Alive reminds me of the drive back from Lake Anna. :D)

I think Black does become everyone's favourite PJ song at some point in life.
