There’s a Fine, Fine Line
Avenue Q 

There’s a fine, fine line
between a lover, and a friend.
There’s a fine, fine line
between reality, and pretend;
And you never know ’til you reach the top
if it was worth the uphill climb.

There’s a fine, fine line
between love,
and a waste of time

There’s a fine, fine line
between a fairy tale, and a lie.
And there’s a fine, fine line
between “you’re wonderful” and “goodbye”.
I guess if someone doesn’t love you back
it isn’t such a crime

But there’s a fine, fine line
between love,
and a waste of your time

And I don’t have the time to waste on you anymore.
I don’t think that you even know what you’re looking for.
For my own sanity I’ve got to close the door
And walk away…
Oh…

There’s a fine, fine line
between together,
and not.
And there’s a fine, fine line
between what you wanted,
and what you got.
You gotta go after the things you want
while you’re still in your prime.

There’s a fine, fine line
between love,
and a waste of time.

yes, this song hit home. it is true though. why enter a relationship which you know would be a waste of time? i think deep inside we all know when a relationship is for keeps or just for now. and yet we still end up forming attachments which we know wouldn’t last. and we end up hurting ourselves in the process.

meet a guy. feel that spark. get to know each other. get closer. and closer. fall-in-love. get to know him more. fall more in-love. get to know him more. fall a bit out-of-love. fight over big stuff. fall a bit more out-of-love. fight over small stuff. fall out of love. burn pictures. return gifts. drink hard. swear off men forever. meet another guy. it’s a vicious cycle.

i think what makes it harder is the fact that we all try to be someone else when we meet someone we like. we try to be the perfect person for them so that they’d fall in love right back. but then, when there already is love, suddenly you’re suprised to learn that you don’t know the other person at all.

why is it so hard to just be yourself? is it because we’re scared that if we show who we really are then the other person won’t love us back? maybe that’s it. we’re scared of rejection. who isn’t?

in a world where technology makes everything easier, even communication, how can we be sure if anyone is truly honest with us anymore?
