500 days. Sometimes, we have to let go of the people we know we can’t have. Those people who we know can’t love us as much as we love them. The ones who’ve easily forgotten about us when the only thing on our minds is if they’re okay.. if they’re doing fine.. Basically anything and everything associated with them. And we’ve decided to finally break free from that. But the problem is we don’t know how to. We’re stubborn when it comes to love.There’s always hope for the hopeless. There’s always second chances. There’s always flashbacks, bitter memories and the whole reminiscing stage. Count in those numerous sparks you feel inside. We keep on telling ourselves it’s wrong.. But what if it was right? What if it happened during the wrong time? Would there be a difference? Would you still count on something or someone who broke your heart thousands of times?
“started off grand then ended in ruins..” That was the first line of 500 days. AJ Rafael’s amazing song. I read that he was inspired with the movie 500 days of summer, and the lyrics said it all. Though I personally can’t relate to the deeper meaning of this beautiful song, I completely understand it by heart.
“you made me feel good. like no one else existed, like summer was here everyday of the year. now its just my wishful thinking..” Everything’s basically falling apart in these lines. Heartbreaking, really. I actually thought the song was a happy kind of love song because of the harmony and all, but it wasn’t. It had a captivating message.
“there is a light and it never goes out. and there is a promise and i don’t mean to scream and shout. but there is a fog and it’s blocking that light.gotta let you go, no use in fighting this fight.“ Basically everything ends there. But in the last lines;
“500 days, i know it wasn’t the best but i won’t ever forget, no, i won’t ever forget.. 500 days, i know it wasn’t the best, but i won’t ever regret no, i won’t ever forget you.” Personally I think it meant that he still loved her. Just like in 500 days of summer, he loved her so so much.. But she was confused. Basically it wasn’t meant to be. Or was it? He let her go eventually. He was hurt, but he will never regret meeting her. He’ll never forget her. He’ll never forget how she made her feel loved.
500 Days of love. 500 days of sparks. 500 days of happiness. 500 days of confusion.. mixed signals. Heartaches. 500 days of hurt.. 500 days of letting go.
And maybe someday.. Something right will come our way. Something orsomeone we won’t hesitate to keep. We would be the happiest people on earth. We’ve loved and we’re loved.
whoa, deep. haha. nice :]
