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.
The spelling and grammar on this site is horrible. I am not trying to become a writer. I write when I feel like it. And if I'm constantly checking spelling and not focusing on the moment, I will end up checking arguments then eventually argue myself out of my opinions. It is a false notion that spelling and grammar is linked to intelligence. The spelling and grammar might be bad...but the imagination is limitless. Something you cannot learn in a classroom.
