Hopless but Hopefull… Joni Mitchell- Both Sides Now

3.11.2010 § 4 Comments

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I am and have always been a hopeless romantic.

For me it’s like having brown eyes. I could try to say put color contacts on but, they’d always still be brown.

It’s an affliction that I think more people have than they actually let on. I think most of us want to be loved for the awesome qualities that are unique to us and to have someone to share the simple joys of life with. But, boy do I ever have it bad.

If relationships or the possibilities of them were like balloons, each time I put in all of my air. Sometimes they begin to float up teasing me that they will soar into the sky,  yet up until this point something always comes in to pop it.

I’ve tried really hard to pick better balloons, but for one reason or another I always get it wrong.

It’s okay. I’ll keep trying, because I just can’t help it, and getting smarter, but it can get a little sad.

This song is perfect for that hopeless romantic  gone wrong feeling. I first heard it in Love Actually. The scene where it comes about is so heart wrenching and made me totally get what the fuss about Joni is all about.

If YOU have a wonderful love, I am so happy for you. But ya know, come on universe share the wealth. Ha.
