sending crayon valentines
i reply
will you marry me, loligirl?
my second grade heart
looks more like a broken you
and me,
19
and crying for eulalia...

i'm still young

i will be waiting for you loligirl
the little girl that i knew loligirl
and if you're waiting for me loligirl
and if you see me loligirl

bring back the boy i used to be

    "Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature called a Boy. Boys comes in assorted sizes, weights and colors, but all boys have the same creed: to enjoy every minute of every second of every day, and to protest with noise (their only weapon) when their last minute is finished and the adult males pack them off to bed at night. Boys are found everywhere-- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around, or jumping to. Mothers love them. Little girls hate them. Older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them, and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket." When you are busy, a boy is an inconsiderate, bothersome, intruding jangle of noise. When you want him to make a good impression, his brain turns to jelly, or else he becomes a savage sadistic jungle creature bent on destroying the world, and himself with it..."

    I just googled it. It's from a much longer speech by the Rev. Guido F. Verbeck III at stpaulsepis.org/fft0524.pdf

    Okay, this song is an awesome song.

    To me, it's about young love, and then later on being lonely and longing to be back in that young love because it was so happy and everything was so bright.

    If I had the choice I'd go back to third grade and be innocently in love again, as things just aren't working in the here and now.

    Bob said the song was pretty much about being so enamored that you feel like a little kid again. The name supposedly came from someone he knew with the name Eulalia, which is just a great name. Good song.

    This is one of my favorite Braid songs if not the number one favorite song. I can't believe you didn't add the dialog at the begining of the song. I love that part. Anyways I think the song is about how he wants to re-live his first real love, to re-live the feeling of a heart never broken that is in love for the first time.

    The lack of dialog makes me sad.

    does this have anything to do with redwall? in the books "eulalia" was a battle cry... i dont think he misses a specific person so much as his childhood in general.

    I know Braid cut a bit of it out, like "Beauty with a cut on its finger" and the end of the excerpt I added. Weird.

    It's also supposed to say "to enjoy every second of every minute of every hour of every day." Don't know what I was thinking.

    I went bowling a couple weeks ago, and my bowling name was Eulalia. It gave us a good chuckle

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
