ne me quitte pas.
Nabi. 18. UST-College of Nursing. .

Another space-consuming being with so much feelings, but sometimes, lack there of. Sapiosexual.

There is always something more than what the eyes can see, what the ears can hear, what your hands can touch, what the heart can feel. And I believe that everything doesn't have to be real.

We are all unique, therefore we are all the same. Prove me wrong.

How - Regina Spektor

After months of first hearing this song, I still cry whenever I hear it play. I guess that this is one of the most “generic” songs by Regina but that doesn’t mean that it failed to showcase her unique style. I also think that this is one of those songs whose lyrics are very simple yet it delivered the meaning very well. The innocence and honesty of the persona singing just pierces your heart. 

How can I forget your love?
How can I never see you again?
There’s a time and place
For one more sweet embrace
And is time, ooh
when it all, ooh
Went wrong
I guess you know by now
That we will meet again somehow

Oh baby
How can I begin again?
How can I try to love someone new?
Someone who isn’t you
How can our love be true?
When I’m not, ooh
I’m not over you

I guess you know by now
That we will meet again somehow

Time can come and take away the pain
But I just want my memories to remain
To hear your voice
To see your face
There’s not one moment I’d erase
You are a guest here now

So baby
How can I forget your love?
How can I never see you again?
How can I ever know why some stay and others go?
When I don’t, ooh
I don’t want you to go

I guess I know by now
That we will meet again somehow

Time can come and wash away the pain
But I just want my mind to stay the same
To hear your voice
To see your face
There’s not one moment I’d erase
You are a guest here now

So baby
How can I forget your love?
How can I never see you again?

So we made the hard decision
And we each made an incision
Past our muscles and our bones
Our hearts were little stones

Pulled ‘em out they weren’t beating
And we weren’t even bleeding
As we lay them on our granite counter top

We beat ‘em up against each other
We beat ‘em up against each other
We struck ‘em hard against each other
We struck ‘em so hard, so hard til they sparked

I cried the first time I heard this song. Never in my whole life have I heard such accurate lyrics that described my feelings. Wuhu, Regina Spektor, I love you. I dedicate this song to the “older guy”. I know it will be a long time before we will see each other again. Nothing to do left but wait, I guess? We will meet again somehow. And when that happens, I wish it will be under wonderful circumstances. 

How can I forget your love?

How can i never see you again?

There is a time and place

for one more sweet embrace

and there is a time oh when it all oh went wrong

I guess you know by now 

that we will meet again somehow

Baby how can i begin again?

How can i try to love someone new,

Someone who isnt you

How can our love be true

when I’m not oh I’m not over you?

i guess you’ll know by now 

that we will meet again somehow

Time can come and take away the pain

but i just want my memories to remain

To hear your voice, to see your face

There’s no one moment i’d erase

You are a guest here now

So baby how can i forget your love?

How can i never see you again?

How can I ever know

why some stay, others go 

when I dont oh I dont want you to go

I guess i know by now

that we will meet again somehow

Time can come and wash away the pain

But i just want my mind to stay the same

To hear your voice, to see your face

There’s no one moment i’d erase

You are a guest here now

So baby how can i forget your love?

How can i never see you again?

35. My blog title “Ne me quitte pas” is a French phrase that means “do not leave me”. It is also a Regina Spektor song.
