I think I must have been in the first or second year of University before I truly understood what the song actually meant. I loved this song growing up, listening to it and singing along, not getting the worlds right “it’s so natural” instead of “Its un-natural” .
Here I am some years later, and I can truly understand what the song really means. It’s actually really sad and depressing. To think that things have an end. I mean everybody knows that one day we are all going to die. The key being “one day”. As some of us experience death of loved ones, that “one day” becomes real. But you can rationalise it’s inevitable there is no stopping it.
But when the death of a relationship comes, it’s a completely different experience. There is always a ‘what if’ that will stay with you. Like an alternative ending to a movie, it will play itself out in your imagination...over and over again, until one day you ready to just let it go. I have come to an understanding about relationships. They end. And that’s fine. I think it’s because of my childhood that I so yearn for this fairy tale ending. This ever after that will remain eternal and more importantly eternally happy.
But real life is quite different.
I’ve heard too many stories of young couples divorcing. It really makes me sad, but then it occurred to me. What if it was just their end? Nothing is made to last forever. Relationships end. What if it was just their time? There is no happily ever after, there is no forever, and destiny is something that we can never truly understand. So really as sad as it is, divorce is okay and natural to a certain extent.
This thought makes me calmer. Even though its sad....its life.
Think this song is cool.

Every so often a movie is made that makes you say...yes. Yes that is the one. The one we have been waiting for.
Joss Whedon, is a ‘one-liner’ genius. He did a brilliant job with the conversation part of the movie. And the...I don’t know what they call it...comedic timing? Whatever it’s called, it gets *Big High Five* from me.
The action and fight sequence also lived up to my expectations *Big High Five* there.
The only thing I didn’t get is the way Hulk couldn't control himself, then he suddenly could? I didn’t get it. For me it was a bit of a leap. But okay I can let that go.
Out of all of the Avengers own movies, I have to say I enjoyed Iron Man the most. It is strong enough to stand on its own; I don’t think the other movies have that ability.
I am totally in love with Thor but when I think about it, for a story that is based on actual Myth that in some parts of the world is believed to be an actual story, it seems flat. I find that when a story line is based on myth or legend, they have much more to work with so the story can be intricate and detailed. But most of the time, the movie makers want to leave time open for all the flashy action and fighting and CG stuff, that they cut out most of the story line, which is the back bone of a movie.
I didn’t watch Capitan America until after Avengers. CA was a bit disappointing; it was so slow with no big bang at the end.
And Hawkeye didn’t get a movie? What’s that about? But rather let them not make a movie, then make one that flops.
