A New Arrangement // Bright Eyes
Because it is the moment that you are living in
And not the one that follows
That makes the mess you are cleaning in your head
And time still drags you forward, although you keep resisting
Because you know it is what you leave behind
You will soon start missing and the people you once counted on
Says it’s all depending on how you act and how you treat yourself
And that is not very well
I can basically chronicle my life since sophomore year of high school through pictures of us waiting in line to see Bright Eyes and this is why they will always be my favorite band.
I’m just going to reblog myself from this day last year because this is even more relevant now
this was when conor was hauled off into a van after the show. he waved at us through the window, that was about it. but the driver did ask if any of us had a lighter for conor’s cigarette. the two boys whose reflections you see there gave him one. they were fangirling over him more than we were.
this is the closest i’ve ever come to meeting conor and i cried when the van pulled away
we cried together
but then we met n8, so everything went better than expected.
One time this same thing happened to me, except NATE came out and asked if anyone had a lighter and the two jerks in front of us just said “maybe, where’s conor” and nate looked SO SAD and just got on the bus and it was the most heartbreaking moment of my life
