It Just Takes One…

This is one of my favourite songs from Dido.

My tea’s gone cold, i’m wondering why
I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window
And I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey
But your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it’s not so bad
It’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
My head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today
I’m late for work again
And even if I’m there,
They’ll all imply that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it’s not so bad
It’s not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door,
I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and through
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down now
I wouldn’t have a clue
Because you’re near me

It’s amazing how all it takes is one person to change the entire perspective on your surroundings. It’s amazing how just a few emotions can alter your view of the world. How one person can turn the impossible to the very doable. How one person can turn your life around for the better…or worse.

We’ve all had that haven’t we?

Sometimes it doesn’t have to be love…though love is the strongest of all things that reshape the world around us. It’s just the person whom you have an emotional connection to. We build our layers of ideas, principles and perceptions around these people. we reshape our lives around these people because of our connection to them. Whether it be love or hate, comfort or revulsion, there is at least one person in our lives that dictates how we run our life.

One person that affects it all.

But why?

Seriously…I don’t know. I’m only human like you. I am myself affected by the same emotional contraints as you. I am driven by the same emotional ties as you. If there was any answer to that question…you won’t find it on any human being in this world. Not in any human being…not yet anyway.

So what do we do about it?

Nothing. I wouldn’t give it up because it makes me the person I am. I wouldn’t give it up because it makes me the person I want to be. For better or worse, one person can so affect your life that you won’t think of going back to the way you we’re. Sometimes…the only way you want to go is foward…and never look back.

So I’ve got one thing to say really.

Thank you.

You know who you are.
