—Smile Like You Mean It


Smile Like You Mean It | The Killers

Save some face, you know you’ve only got one
Change your ways while you’re young
Boy, one day you’ll be a man
Oh girl, he’ll help you understand

And I remembered now, too, my inadvertent youthful condescension, when the woman had said, apologizing for some information she couldn’t recall, “I still remember the coat I wore when I was five, but I have no idea what I ate for breakfast today.” I’d laughed and smiled in warm sympathy. How sweet, I had thought, she remembers her coat. She must have loved it not to have forgotten. But the coat wouldn’t ask any effort of preservation. Feeling ninety, and no longer five, there would be the real effort. Telling that five-year old girl, in her beautiful coat, You’re all finished. Submerged. Obsolete.

We are ghosts of ourselves, and of others, and all of these ghosts appear perfectly real.

—Wake Me

I’d rather be sad with you
Than anywhere away from you
I’d rather be sad with you
Than with any other girls but you

If you’re lonely than wake me
