Taylor Swift, White Horse

*I am probably going to be quoting Taylor a lot in the near future... I'm getting excited about her concert in October, so I'm listening to her on repeat. My goal is to feature each one of her songs on my blog... just kidding... but really, they are about my life. I actually may dedicate an entire tag to her lyrics...
“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,

revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

Audrey Hepburn

"Sun, shines in the eyes, of those who know how

to leave the past behind."

Joshua Radin, We Are Only Getting Better

*Thank you, Sarah Ellen. I just love you.
"The past should be the past. It can destroy the future. Live life for what tomorrow has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away."

"Broken pieces of a barely breathing story where there once was love; now there's only me."

Christina Perri, The Lonely
"You showed me something that I couldn't see; you opened my eyes and you made me believe."

Taylor Swift, Crazier

*Seeing her the day before my 22nd birthday... I couldn't BE more pumped.

"Dim the lights, lock the door, spread your pictures on the floor. Blow the dust off of our past, let it all come flooding back. It ain't easy being strong, and when I can't forget you're gone, I just surrender and have myself a night to remember."

Joe Diffie, Night to Remember

"Love is really nothing but a dream that keeps waking me. For all of my trying, we still end up dying.

John Mayer, Edge of Desire

I wish you were here with me.
I wish I was there with you.
But most of all, I wish I
didn't have to wish for you.

"You can't make the same mistake twice; the second time you make it, it's no longer a mistake--it's a choice."

Billy Currington, Let Me Down Easy
"You hold me without touch, you keep me without chains. I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.
Set me free, leave me be."

"I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity."

"You're neither friend nor foe, though I can't seem to let you go. The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down."

Sara Bareilles, Gravity

"And the story of us looks a lot like a
tragedy now."

Taylor Swift, The Story of Us
"Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?"

Julie Roberts, Unlove Me

"Love is blind and little did I know
that you were just another dead end road...
Paved with pretty lies and broken dreams."

Julie Roberts, Break Down Here
"It was two adults having the maturity to step away and realize that just because we love each other doesn't mean we're right for each other."

Emily Maynard, People Magazine July 2011

"Don’t be afraid to fall in love, It’s the only thing that matters in life. Fall in love with as many things as possible."

Kelly Cantor, Country Strong

This is hard.
This is hell.
This is pain
like I have never felt.
This is final.
Love has failed.
This is walking away
from us to save ourselves.
This is goodbye.

Randy Rogers Band, This is Goodbye
"Love who you love while you have them. That's all you can do. Let them go when you must. If you know how to love, you'll never run out."

Ann Brashares, My Name is Memory
