[Quotations from the movie Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind]

"I had you pegged didn't I?"
"You had the whole world pegged..."
"Ha, probably."
"I still thought you were going to save my life, even after that."

I stumble into your room and I freeze
Because the way you hold your eyes in mine sometimes, paralyzes me
Better than any anesthesia after any accident
Or the shock of every car wreck that I’ve ever been in
And you should know if I still had my soul in my name
It would be yours in a blink

I’ve got a fever of one hundred and three
And I’m exactly where I want to be
And you let me sleep between your sheets
Despite the heaving of my breathing and the beating of my chest
That never ceases to scream your name
In every song that I sing and every dream that I claim
And you should know that you’re the best thing that I’ve found

And she loves lilies and doves and me
In the best way that she can
And for that I am so grateful and so thankful
And I know that she can’t stand to see me on my knees in desperate elegance.

"Was it something I said?"
"Yeah, you said, 'so go' with such disdain, you know?"
"Come back and make up a goodbye at least, let's pretend we had one..."

I just want to paint my world in hues of orange and white
