Where My Heart is Today: Coldplay's "What If?"



"...every step that you take,
can be your biggest mistake.
it can bend, it can break,
but that's just the risk that you take..."

(Video clip from YouTube, as usual.)

Full lyrics from Leo's Lyrics to be posted later.

I simultaneously love and hate this song...namely because it encapsulates so many of my past...and now current...relationships. Yet you'd never know it on the outside, never. Somedays recently I wonder if I've simply forgot how to bend and have just chose to be broken instead. Path of least resistance and all...this good Doctor apparently needs one of her own.

"Somedays recently I wonder if I've simply forgot how to bend and have just chose to be broken instead."

How people change, according to Tony Kushner's "Angels in America":

"God splits the skin with a jagged thumbnail...then plunges a huge filthy hand in...he pulls and pulls till all your innards are yanked out, and the pain! We can't even talk about that. And then he stuffs them back, dirty, tangled and torn. It's up to you to do the stitching. And then get up, and walk around. Just mangled guts pretending. That's how people change."
