"I'm always anxious thinking I'm not living my life to the fullest, you know? Taking advantage of every possibility? Just making sure that I'm not wasting one second of the little time I have." -Clementine Kruczynski (played by Kate Winslet)

When he told me, I cried
Because I once thought that love was such a vague word, you know
A single word that does not accurately express true feelings and
Only words upon words upon words will ever truly reach my ears and force me to believe what
I now know could possibly be that truth
The truth that is my imminent death as a nonbeliever but
Maybe I want to remain a nonbeliever because
They say that ignorance is bliss but my ignorance was more than bliss could do justice and
Now that I have brought myself to believe
I am confused as to
What you could ever see in a person who walks
Talks and
Acts like me and
This is all I have ever wanted, you know
Someone to hide a smile whenever they see me
Someone to dream about me
Someone to wonder what it is that I think about but
Now I would trade it for the world’s worst loneliness because
I am responsible for your unhappiness and
When he told me, I cried
Because the word love becomes heavy when it is about you
