sometimes it frightens me how well you know me, will.
you aced it, all in one go, when i mailed you this video.
So, for the sake of us having a giggle, i’ll alter it here, just for posterity.
Because, in 1996, we both know it would have worked out the same.
and it better be different in 12 years time, as I said.
if not, at least i would have exhibited consistency, perseverance (again!) and the ability to keep laughing.
I like you a lot
I realize you’re in a relationship with someone right now and I respect that
I would like you to know that if you’re ever single in the future
and want to come visit me in California I would be open to spending
time with you and finding out how old you were when you wrote your first song
I liked you too much
I used to be attracted to boys who would lie to me and think solely
about themselves and you were plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time
I used to say the more tragic the better the truth is whenever I think
of the early 90’s you face comes up with a vengeance like it was yesterday
I love you muchly
you’ve been nothing but open hearted and emotionally available and
supportive and nurturing and consummately there for me
I kept drawing you in and pushing you away
I remember how beautiful it was to fall asleep on your couch and
cry in front of you for the first time
you were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself
what was wrong with me
You rocked my world
you had a charismatic way about you with the women and
you got me seriously thinking about spirituality and you wouldn’t let
me get away with kicking me own ass
but I would never really feel relaxed and looked out for around you
though and that stopped us from going any further than we did
and it’s kinda too bad because we could’ve had much more fun
We learned so much
I realise we won’t be able to talk for some time and I understand that as I do you
the long distance thing was the hardest and we did as well as we could
we were together during a very tumultuous time in our lives
I will always have your back and be curious about you
about your career your whereabouts
(btw. larcy. Smooch. you can tell i’m working up to the 17th hey? hehe4)
