Just my brain-dump.

If You’re Afraid of Falling, Then Don’t Look Down

Mixtape Mood: 
Do you feel the same when I’m away from you?
Do you know the line that I’d walk for you?
We could turn around and we could give it up
But we’ll take what comes

Do you ever just get in a mood where all you can do is blow everything up? It’s this manic feeling of extreme claustrophobia and wanting to push everything away because if you don’t, you’ll suffocate? The desk, the necklace, the dog, the friend, anything within proximity that is suddenly just too close for comfort?

I like to think of myself as a pretty headstrong and fearless person, but there are times that I think a mouse has more courage. I mean, seriously. Who just gets into a zone where they have to burn everything to the ground in order to feel okay, and even then, by definition, you’re the very opposite of okay, but at least now you’re in control of your own “not okay”? At least now, nobody else can influence your level of “okay”?

It isn’t healthy and its a habit I have to break, but at least at this point in my life, I recognize when it is happening. At least now, I am able to pump the breaks a little bit. Maybe this time around, i’m learning how to better handle the urge to break everything that is within reach. I’m giving myself space and time to think through things instead of just reacting and regretting.

Do you feel the same when I’m away from you?
Do you know the line that I’d walk for you?
We could turn around and we could give it up
But we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Oh, the storm is raging against us now
If you’re afraid of falling then don’t look down
But we took the step, oh, we took the leap
And we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Feel the wind in your hair
Feel the rush way up here

We’re walking the wire, love
We’re walking the wire, love
We couldn’t be higher, up
We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

There’s nights we had to just walk away
And there’s tears we’ll cry but those tears will fade
It’s a price you pay when it comes to love
And we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Feel the wind in your hair
Feel the rush way up here

We’re walking the wire, love
We’re walking the wire, love
We couldn’t be higher, up
We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below
Look out down below
Look out down below
Walking the wire, wire, wire
So look out down below

Oh, I’ll take your hand when thunder roars
And I’ll hold you close, I’ll stay the course
I promise you from up above
That we’ll take what comes, take what comes
Love

We’re walking the wire, love
We’re walking the wire, love
We couldn’t be higher, up
We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below
Look out down below
Look out down below
Walking the wire, wire, wire
So look out down below

We’re walking the wire
We’re walking the wire
We’re walking the wire, wire, wire
