I just realized that “21” and “Wounded Rhymes” came out around the same time 3 years ago. I had just started dating my boyfriend at the time, and I knew that our relationship was a bit tumultuous from the start. I never realized that wanting to listen to such sad music was a sign that I wasn’t happy, and most likely just pretending to be because I just wanted to be someone’s girlfriend. Oh, the red flags we ignore! Anyway it’s been a year since I broke up with him and I’m realizing that that’s why my dreams have been so sad lately. And they always involve him. I can’t wait for summer because that was when I felt my safest and my most alive.
"Sadness is a blessing. Sadness is a pearl. Sadness is my boyfriend. Oh sadness, I’m your girl."
"I won’t let you close enough to hurt me. I won’t rescue you to just desert me. I can’t give you the heart you think you gave me. It’s time to say goodbye to turning tables."
