"There’s a hole in my heart shaped like you. oh, don’t want no-one else to fill it through. Just knowing that I love you is enough, knowing that I’ve loved that much. Missing you. Some of me is here, having fun living life on my own. The rest of me is sitting in a quiet room waiting to go home. If you go before your time will my whole life be what I’ve just described? Missing you…I let the world flow into your spot… staring people right in the eye
But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends.
But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly.
You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable.
Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives:
First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed.
That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life.
It is, because the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… It could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen.
The terrifying thing is… What if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?
You occupy my thoughts in the day and haunt my dreams at night
It’s been a week, and it doesn’t sound like much but it’s felt like forever. I guess that’s all I have to say about that.
Happiness was just outside my window
I thought it’d crash blowing 80-miles an hour
But, happiness is a little more like knocking
On your door, you just let it in
Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can’t make it come or go
But you are gone, not for good but for now
And gone for now feels a lot like gone for good
Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
‘Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks
Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself that’s enough for now
But happiness has a violent roar
Happiness it’s like the old man told me
Look for it, and you’ll never find it all
But let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day, wake up and she’ll be home
I can’t do the talk, like the talk on the tv
And I can’t do a love song, like the way that it’s meant to be
I can’t do everything but I’ll do anything for you
I can’t do anything except be in love with you
