How Close Is Close Enough?
"Imagine you're a girl just trying to finally come clean
Knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty and smiling" -Ani Difranco

"It's just...you never really know what's going on inside somebody - do you? You think if you care about them - you know. But you never really do." ~from Buffy The Vampire Slayer

"I was just eating bread and water, thinking nothing ever changes
And I was shocked to see the mistakes of each generation
Will just fade like a radio station
If you drive out of range" -Ani Difranco

"There is only one rule you have to follow: don't be mean." -Kate Bornstein

“That paradox would begin to run my life: to know that what you are doing is hurting you, maybe killing you, and to be afraid of that fact--but to cling to the idea that this will save you, it will, in the end, make things okay.” -Wasted, Marya Hornbacher

"It is ever so easy to go. Harder to find your way back.” -Wasted, Marya Hornbacher

"The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today...." -RENT

"'Cause they can call me crazy
If I fail
All the chance that I need
Is one in a million
And they can call me brilliant
If I suceed
Gravity is nothing to me
Moving at the speed of sound
I just want to get my feet wet
Until I drown
'Cause I don't care if they eat me alive
I've got better things to do than survive
I've got a memory of your warm skin in my hand
And I've got a vision of blue sky and dry land" -Ani Difranco
