"It’s alright to cry
Even my dad does sometimes
So don’t wipe your eyes
Tears remind you you’re alive
It’s alright to die
'Cause death's the only thing you haven't tried
But just for tonight hold on

It’s alright to shake
Even my hand does sometimes
So inside the rage
Against the dying of the light
It’s alright to say that death’s the only thing you haven’t tried
But just for today hold on”

-Ed Sheeran, Even My Dad Does Sometimes

Stay Here With Us

Frank Ocean | Wisemen

“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

— Quentin Tarantino explaining why he didn’t use the song in “Django Unchained.”

Dear Long Distance Lover

Please understand that I want you.
You and your ten-second phone calls

in silence. Our exhales ultimately becoming echoes 
inside our lungs. I wonder if mountains become jealous

of this closeness from a distance only the clouds can measure.
Some airplanes must have felt the vibrations

of our voice boxes like match sticks rubbed on any surface,
we feel each other’s fingers from places

we will never belong to. I am here and you are
becoming part of the ocean and I am always

a shoreline. All I know is this is me saying “I love you”
This is me waiting for you to just come home

to me. Even if it takes the ocean to understand
how badly I want you to be.
