Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

I swear to God,  §

Ben Folds is a genius. And every time I listen to “Don’t Change Your Plans,” I feel as though I want to weep like a baby. Let’s see, what am I listening to tonight? I can just hear some of my friends: “Boff, you’re trying to depress yourself, Jeezus…”

Life just always… hurts. There’s not fucking thing one you can do about or with it. It’s just gonna hurt. It’s gonna be beautiful, too, which is what makes the hurt that much more intense. Pain is one thing. Pain at the ebb of beauty… That’s a killer. An absolute killer. Loving things and losing them and not knowing why or how.

“Sometimes I get the feeling
That I won’t be on this planet
For very long
I really like it here
I’m quite attached to it
I hope I’m wrong

All I really wanna say
Is you’re the reason I wanna stay
I loved you before I met you
And I met you just in time
cause there was nothing left

I sat here on my suitcase
In our empty new apartment
Until the sun went down
Then I walked back down the stairs
With all my bags and drove away
You must be freaking out

All I know is I’ve gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense in fact,
I never understand these things I feel

Dont change your plans for me
I wont move to L.A.
The leaves are falling back east
Thats where I’m gonna stay

You have made me smile again
In fact, I might be sore from it
Its been a while
I know we’ve been together many times before
Ill see you on the other side

Dont change your plans for me
I wont move to L.A.
The leaves are falling back east
Thats where I’m going to stay

All I really wanna say
Is you’re the reason I wanna stay
But destiny is calling and won’t hold
And when my time is up I’m outta here

All I know is I gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things,
I feel

I love you, good bye
I love you, good bye…”
