Afterlife - Arcade Fire
when love is gone
where does it go?
"I have the emotions of a child in the body of a woman. I was rushed into womanhood for the movies. It caused me long moments of unhappiness and doubt." - Elizabeth Taylor
We fall in love with what is bad for us. He tasted like expensive whiskey, and I had a craving for his liquor lips. He told me he didn’t know what love was, but I still spilled my soul on his floor and watched as he stepped over it instead of picking it up. He told me he didn’t want a relationship, but I forgot to stop myself from calling him my boyfriend when people asked about him.
Loving him was dangerous, but I’ve always had a high tolerance for pain. When his fingertips started burning my skin, I taught myself how to be numb. I was always doing things for him, I never even noticed I was wasting away."
