Letting Go of Fievel

six years ago, i [practically] swore that anyone who would give me "An American Tail" CD would probably end up as "the one" because, well, let's just say that i was that shallow to think that i would end up with somebody decent enough to be my guy. Ha! Talk about teenage hormones at its height. I never realized that making that vow has actually chronicled my life as a person.

why american tail? few people know this stuff because it's not something to brag about. i don't go telling people that i do want this particular CD because blah blah blah and yadah yadah yadah. until now. I've finally muster enough sense out of reality to still believe in this kind of stuff. honestly, i don't think anyone would've guess that i was pining for it. who would anyway? mostly it was about the soundtrack, which i believe every kid in this planet knows. Somewhere out there. You could probably guess now, don't ya think?

Somewhere Out There

Fv: Somewhere out there,
beneath the pale moonlight,
someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight.

Ty: Somewhere out there,
someone's saying a prayer,
that we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there.

Ty: And even though I know how very far apart we are,
it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.

Fv: And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky.

Together: Somewhere out there,
if love can see us through,
then we'll be together, somewhere out there,
out where dreams come true.

Somewhere out there, the astral half of mine hasn't figured out everything yet. somewhere beneath this sky, we will walk past each other never realizing the dreams. So, until then, i have to throw away the childhood stuff and welcome the harsh reality of life. after all, i'm not 15 anymore and days are slowly becoming shorter and shorter.

*it's been a nice 6 years of waiting but we shouldn't be contented of just waiting. sometimes letting it go could be the next best thing.

quite specific huh? well let's just look at it positively.. with billions of people in the world now, there must at least be a couple of guys out there who loves the american tail and somewhere out there..

but chances are that he can either be really really young (or young at heart for that matter) or he's gay..

either way, i believe you'll find the one (regardless of the american tail and somewhere out there thingy).. who knows he might be that guy seating beside you in the internet cafe right now haha!
