Instant Tears

September 29th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m re-writing the frantic and hilariously depressing movie I wrote about my breakup, in the hopes of gradually moving on and also making hundreds of millions of dollars and literally using heartbreak to pay off student loans.

To get in the right headspace, I’m torturing myself by listening to this song by the Weepies over and over, and no, the irony is not lost on me. The Weepies’re especially torturous and nostalgic, as the night of my SECOND I’m leaving you and moving to LA party, he played a song of theirs in our favorite dirty bar at something insane like 3 AM and we danced to it, and it was lovely.

Lovely Sad song: meet sad movie. You’ll do nice over the credits.

Can’t go back Now

Yesterday, when you were young,
Everything you needed done was done for you.
Now you do it on your own
But you find you’re all alone,
What can you do?

You and me walk on
Cause you can’t go back now.

You know there will be days when you’re so tired that you can’t take another step.
The night will have no stars and you’ll think you’ve gone as far as you will ever get.

But you and me walk on
Cause you can’t go back now
And yeah, yeah, go where you want to go
Be what you want to be,
If you ever turn around, you’ll see me.

I can’t really say why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself

And you and me walk on
Yeah you and me walk on
Cause you can’t go back now
Walk on, walk on, walk on
You can’t go back now
