It occured to me…

Perhaps James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” was based on Romeo and Juliet. If uh, it has been proven somewhere already that this is the case then please ignore my ignorance but look at this:

“You’re Beautiful”

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Now, for those who are woefully not so familiar with the concepts of Romeo and Juliet…here is an overview.

But for those who can’t be bothered, basically Romeo sees Juliet at a party and falls in love with her immediately. But they can’t be together because they are from rival families, but despite all of that they still fall deeper in love. After a few unfortunate incidents, fakes deaths and banishments, Romeo kills himself after believing that Juliet was dead (she wasn’t). After Romeo dies, Juliet wakes up from her fake death, and sees her beloved Romeo dead. She then kills herself as well. So everyone dies.

Now, relate that to Blunt’s lyrics.

Bouncin’ off the walls

THEY DID IT! THEY DID IT! THEY MADE UP! THEY ARE TOGETHER AGAIN! THEY’RE OKAY! It’s gonna take a bit more time but they’re together and they hugged and they talked and they smiled at each other and I don’t care if this sounds gay but the LOVE IS BACK!

Yes yes yes, Dani and D.P. made up! Remember how I said a while back that there was something up? Well fuck that! They’re talking again! Dani took the advice from her horoscope (thank you horoscope) and they talked and at lunchtime D.P. was walking next to me and in front of my eyes they hugged and I was so happy I was literally jumping and whooping and hindsight, it was odd that I was happier than them but I don’t give a fuck they’re together again and that’s all that I care about right now!!!

The moment when I see them hug again, I nearly cried. But the tear ducts were put on hold because my brain had to send messages to my feet to JUMP JUMP JUMP! But honestly, I had a jolt in my heart and I was close to crying for joy. What a wonderful moment. It was sunny, and the sun shone as they hugged as a silhouette, two beings joining as one (again, that sounded infinitely gay but fuck that) and I was just so happy.

Last period today Carmaine had a French SAC so Eunice and I sat at a picnic table while i strummed a few chords and we sang. Eunice was quite pretty lying on the bench basking in the sun. Bee and Sha- sat aside, having a conversation, and then at the end they joined us and we sang “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias (however) and it was a very very nice moment.

Carmaine too, was extremely amazing today. We bought ice-cream but mine melted a bit so I ran out of tissues to wipe with, and Carmaine, in a motherly fashion, handed me a spare. The only thing she could’ve done was wipe my face herself but I think that takes it a bit too far.

Is it pathetic that I’m sitting here now, barely an hour after saying goodbye to my beloveds, and already I miss them so much it hurts (overused cliche but try to imagine that in an almost-literal sense) and I can’t believe I have to spend hours not seeing them again.

Tomorrow I am going to a family friend’s so that means I can probably sleep in a tiny bit, and then have to do my Chinese, and then A LOT OF LEGAL! I think my Legal is due the coming week OR the week after that which honestly is not a lot of time at all. I have to seriously dedicate some hardcore time to it.

Okay that’s all for now. Julia on her blog (she’s on my blogroll) signs out with a nice quote every time. I don’t have nice quotes. I found some fun Ellen DeGeneres ones. Here’s one of my favorites:

“I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.” Ellen DeGeneres

Some people don’t get her humor, but I like it. It’s kind of ironic, satirical and sarcastic at the same time. Very much “take a good long look at yourself and see how stupid you are” esque.

P.S. I love you two! I’M SO HAPPY YOU MADE UP! When I hugged both of you at the end of the day, it felt like a happy family. I was so tempted (or maybe i said it anyway) to say, “the child is happy that mommy and daddy made up.” (needless to say, D.P. is the dad. Jokes! But not really.)

P.P.S. Love you so much I could kiss you right now.

” I don’t blame you for being you
But you can’t blame me for hating it
So say, what are you waiting for?
Kiss her, kiss her
I set my clocks early ’cause I know I’m always late”
