“Stars, they make me wonder where you are.
Stars, up on heaven’s boulevard.
And if I know you at all,
I know you’ve gone too far.
So I, I can’t look at the stars.”
Not unlike Grace Potter, I tried coming up with a list of what I can’t do because of a past relationship. For Grace, one thing is looking at stars. For me, well, there’s a lot I can’t do and sometimes I don’t even know I can’t do them till I do them. Songs I shouldn’t listen to anymore, places in Nashville that I just won’t go, movies I can’t watch without thinking of relationships that have come and gone. It’s all part of the journey, I guess. Even knowing certain things that were special with that special someone can’t be special for the next special someone, I’m hoping there’s enough wonder still in the world that fantastic memories can be created that will last a lifetime with the person I find to spend a lifetime with.
Thankfully, I can still look at the stars.
