“It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence.

Best song ever, and I don’t give a fuck what you think. Molly Ringwald was the head bitch in charge, she starred in alot of 80’s movies, featuring, Pretty in Pink & Sixteen Candles.

“Even if you think the flame has died, there’s a least one lyric that will hit that last hot spot, and then you’ll find yourself as fucked as you were the day you lied and said you never wanted to see him again.”—John Mayer (via poeticheartache)
“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response. ‘I don’t know’, Alice answered. ‘Then’, said the cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.’”—Alice In Wonderland (via maksg)
