Love is An Open Door

I don’t know about you but I have been crazy about “Frozen” since it came out. I’m listening to the soundtracks, I know all the lyrics, I’ve been driving my friends crazy with it too whilst I sing out my heart’s content as I pretend I’m Elsa the Snow Queen. It’s quite hilarious, you should catch me sometime.

Today though, I ran into such an adorable proposal as this couple sing to one of the songs from the movie and I can’t help but share the cuteness. It’s cuteness overload to the max. I just love how the new bride doesn’t believe any of it, just adorable! Enjoy! 😀

P.S. Here’s the original content from the movie! Don’t forget to check it out!

Apologue #4: Our Song

I have a song that I never listen to. It’s such a shame because it’s such a beautiful song that was amazingly written and sung by an extremely talented singer. It’s one of those songs that creep under your skin and cling on to every part of your body that you can’t wretch it out. It sticks to your mind and squeezes at your heart that you feel like you’re suffocating and short of breath. It’s a song that I can sing out to you in perfect memory but it’s also a song that puts me through my misery.

It used to be a song which was “our” song, but it’s no longer ours to share. It’s kind of heart-wrenching and painful when you haven’t heard it in a long time and suddenly hear it after years of practice of trying not to run into it. Listening to the lyrics brought me back so many painful memories of my past (especially the one that this song was dedicated to). It brings back our happiest moments and our worst moments from our journey together.

How can it be that after all this time, listening to it still brings back the tears to my eyes? It’s funny because it became our song when I was the one that sang it as my confession of endearing love. Listening to it again, each word from each lyric stabs my heart. If it still hurts, does it mean that I am still in love with that person? I really, REALLY hope that isn’t so.

A song can be just a song but I guess I personified it so much that it’s begun to haunt me and it feels so real. I first sang this song to someone I loved back in about 2004 or 2005. After the break-up, I didn’t listen to it or come across it for almost seven years. When I did come back to it, I listened to it on repeat for a whole day and just cried in my car as I was driving, with no destination in mind. Just listening and my car to take me wherever the roads led me. I drove a good 300 or so miles and passed through two major cities in my state until I came back home and listened to it some more before drowning in sleep. Now it’s been almost another two years, and I came across it by chance again. It’s funny how I keep coming back to it;  it’s not really a song that was ever popular or played on the radio. Hence it keeps haunting me by drawing me back to the source.

This really scares me . . . Not that I keep running into it, but because I fear that this song isn’t just another memory of my past but something that is still meaningful to my present. I’m currently deciphering my own feelings to figure out if it’s just the pain that brings back the haunting or if I am still in love with the person from my past, that I tried so hard to stay away from. If I’m not, and this all just ceases to a memory, I couldn’t ask for a happier thing. But if I am, not only was that person right all this time in knowing I would never be able to move on . . . but we wasted SO many years trying to fix this thinking that being apart was the best thing for the both of us.

Heartbreak Fairy Tale

Corpse Bride 2 Love

I was a bride
My dreams were taken from me
But now – now I’ve stolen them from someone else
I love you, Victor, but you are not mine . . .

Corpse Bride [Corpse Bride, 2005]

When I watch the Corpse Bride, I can’t help but feel that this is truly a sad and tragic love story. The film portrays a happy ending for Victor and Victoria but to me, I can’t help but be overwhelmed with sadness. This quote that the Corpse Bride says to Victor as she lets him go back to Victoria instead of fighting for her own love for him not only just moved me but got me so upset to tears. How can this be a happy ending? Sure the “living” Victor and Victoria may live a happy marriage together but what about the Corpse Bride? She will forever be wandering in her lonesome self with a body of a corpse living day after day enveloped in sadness because not only did she lose her love when she was living but also when she was dead. I know that she knows what she did was the right thing to do, but Victor not doing anything to stop her (considering how his feelings and thoughts about her DID change) or even make sure if she was okay with this idea hurt me too. Yes, she is not alive . . . and yes, she doesn’t have a beating heart . . . but I sincerely believe that she felt heartbreak just as any of us, from her loss of true love. It’s just as she puts it into song in “Tears to Shed.”

If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain
If you cut me with a knife, it’s still the same
And I know her heart is beating, and I know that I am dead
Yet the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it’s not real
And it seems that I still have a tear to shed 

If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain
In the ice or in the sun, it’s all the same
Yet I feel my heart is aching, though it doesn’t beat, it’s breaking
And the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it’s not real
I know that I am dead, yet it seems that I still have some tears to shed 

I know that not everyone gets their happily ever after. But that doesn’t also mean that no one doesn’t deserve one. As much as I enjoyed the film, there’s no sadder love story than heartbreak.

Something Good

Something Good

“Something Good” – Maria & Captain Von Trapp [The Sound of Music, 1965]

For here you are, standing there, loving me
Whether or not you should
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good

Nothing comes from nothing
Nothing ever could
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good

My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

“My Favorite Things” – Maria [The Sound of Music, 1965]

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things 

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad
