and i think i've lived enough and experienced to enough to understand the song.
"you've got to cry without weeping,talking without speaking, scream without raising your voice" As anyone else who's gotten older, a lot of things happen from when you're 13 to the present (24 for me). i've gotten my fair share getting my heart broken and broken some hearts as well. made some mistakes and have paid for it but also gotten away with some. i've made some good deicisions, and been rewarded, and sometimes i haven't been recognized. and that's all ok with me.
so i guess on behalf of the 13 year old version of me, who bought the joshua tree in tower records (that is no longer there bye the way) in yonkers new york, i'd like to thank u2 for writing running to stand still, and making me wait eleven years to finally understand that song.
it's so tough to say goodbye to someone, isn't it?
