Being single can be both exhilrating and saddening all at the same time. One moment you have a brief realization of freedom and being able to just flirt. Another moment — you realize feel like you just don’t want to do it anymore. No more talking. No more pleasantries. It all seems to be one big formal process. The shaking of the hands…the exchange of names. Who lives where. Educational background…status…employment/unemployment. All the while you are sizing up the person to see whether you can see yourself with them. All this in a short time frame of about 3 mins. What the fuck is that all about?

I don’t know. Sometimes I feel like I just want to be alone. Then my friends label me as “depressed” or “antisocial” – when all the fuck I want is to just really be. To clear my mind. To realize what I want in myself. Is that so much to ask?

I’ve been listening to this band alot lately. Very Travis like. The lyrics to this particular song seem fitting.

(Keane) – Somewhere Only We Know

“I walked across an empty land

I knew the pathway like the back of my hand

I felt the earth beneath my feet

Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone

I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

So tell me when you’re gonna let me in

I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree

I felt the branches of it looking at me

Is this the place we used to love?

Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone

I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

So tell me when you’re gonna let me in

I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go

Talk about it somewhere only we know?

This could be the end of everything

So why don’t we go

Somewhere only we know?

Oh simple thing where have you gone

I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

So tell me when you’re gonna let me in

I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go

Talk about it somewhere only we know?

This could be the end of everything

So why don’t we go

Somewhere only we know?

This could be the end of everything

So why don’t we go

Somewhere only we know?”
