Lyrics of the Week – Week 40


Dedicated to Chase Hafer. This is his favorite band.

“How’s It Going To Be” by Third Eye Blind

I’m only pretty sure that I can’t take anymore
Before you take a swing, I wonder what are we fighting for?
When I say out loud, “I want to get out of this,”
I wonder, is there anything I’m going to miss?

I wonder how it’s going to be
when you don’t know me.
How’s it going to be
when you’re sure I’m not there?
How’s it going to be
when there’s no one there to talk to between you and me?
‘Cause I don’t care
How’s it going to be?
How’s it going to be?

Where we used to laugh, there’s a shouting match
sharp as a thumbnail scratch
A silence I can’t ignore,
like the hammock by the doorway we spent time in
Swing’s empty
I don’t see lightning like last fall
when it was always about to hit me

I wonder how’s it going to be when it goes down
How’s it going to be when your not around?
How’s it going to be when you found out there was nothing
between you and me?
‘Cause I don’t care
How’s it going to be?

And how’s it going to be
when you don’t know me anymore?
And how’s it going to be?

I wanna get myself back in again
The soft dive of oblivion…
I wanna taste the salt of your skin
The soft dive of oblivion…oblivion

How’s it going to be
when you don’t know me any more?
How’s it going to be?
How’s it going to be?

Too often we compromise our true feelings for someone when we come face to face with his or her flaws. Although I am a very accepting person, it is difficult for me to make friends because I am far too picky. Thus, I have few best friends.

My boyfriend is now a best friend of mine, but everyday I am suffocated by the thought of him going to University of Maryland to play football while I head off to Penn State main campus. I anticipate this at least once a day, drowning myself a bit more each time. Long distance relationships are–cliche–very difficult. I tried one last summer and yes, it ended. I may have anticipated that one too (after Michael died), but none-the-less, we grew apart.

I know what to do to keep this one strong, but I still feel discouraged. I don’t accept change easily, or willingly, for that matter.

Advice?

P.S. I’m going to see Third Eye Blind tomorrow, for the second time since April! 😀
