Music Mondays: The Only Exception (Paramore)

Once bitten, twice shy.

If you’ve been hurt before, chances are, you wouldn’t want to repeat the same experience again for fear of getting hurt. But there is no “same experience”. Nothing repeats itself exactly the same way. And you don’t receive and experience such things exactly the same way you did before. So there is no need to fear. There is no need to be “shy” because the person you were the first time is not the same person you are now. The same is true with other people. People change. It’s inevitable.

But if you’ve shied away from anything that could possibly hurt you because of the pain you saw in others, then you’d be missing a significant part of your life. You’d never know the value of all the positive things such as happiness, love, trust, beauty, and such if you don’t get to experience and relate it in the context of its negative side.

Then again, there’s no need to rush into things. You get over fear over time. Sometimes, it takes one person to make an exception and help you overcome your fears and doubts.

Today’s Music Monday embodies that notion. In love, it takes that one person to dispel the fear of getting hurt again.

Music Mondays: Little Things (One Direction)

When you love someone, you’re always aware of him. It’s as if your whole consciousness gravitates towards him. Everything little thing he does, the things he likes and dislikes, his mannerisms, etc., all these things are printed into your subconscious so much so that trivial things remind you of him.

It’s no wonder that in Avatar, they tell each other “I see you”. In anime/manga, guys/girls confess not only to get an answer but also to make the “confessee” become aware of them and consider them.

Can you imagine being the one at the receiving end of that attention? Will it scare you? Or will it flatter you? What would you feel? Personally, I’d be humbled. I always have prettier friends and so am used to being unnoticed. So catching someone’s attention and having his awareness focused only on me, I’d consider that a worthwhile feeling. To think that I’d be the one bringing color to his life.

Now, what if today’s rocking boy group (do we still call them boy band like in the 90s?) serenades you with a song that describes such awareness? Wouldn’t you just swoon to cloud nine?

P.S. Did you notice that last week’s Music Mondays, has the phrase “little things” in its lyrics, too?
