the song of my life (right now)

i've always liked jewel...

Standing Still

Cuttin' through the darkest night
In my two headlights
I'm trying to keep it clear
But I'm losing it here
To the twilight
There's a dead end to my left
There's a burning bush to my right
You aren't in sight
You aren't in sight

Do you want me
Like I want you?

Or am I standing still?
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still?
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still?
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you that passed me by?

Mothers on a stoop
Boys in souped-up coupes
On this hot summer night
Between fight and flight
Is the blind man's sight
And the choice that's right
I roll the window down
Feels like I'm gonna drown
In this strange town
I feel broken down
I feel broken down

Do you need me
Like I need you?


Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow
Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow

Do you love me
Like I love you?


Oh, you're passing me by
Passing me by
Do you need me like I need you to?
Do you want me like I want you?
Or are you passing me by?
Or am I standing still?

i'm hoping up to the HEAVENS that it's really okay, will be okay...


i've realized that no amount of cadaver dissection, scientific explanations and all the dehumanizing glory that comes with med school can desensitize and numb me.

i still feel.
