It’s simple

Love is simple

Yesterday I went to Gramedia, read a bit of this, a bit of that for free ๐Ÿ˜›

I found a leaflet for a new novel.

There’s a quote there “Mencintai dan dicintai adalah hal yang sangat sederhana. Jauh lebih sederhana daripada berusaha membuat orang yang kita cintai mencintai kita ataupun berusaha mencintai orang yang tidak kita cintai.” (To love and be loved is very simple. It’s much more simple than trying to make the one we love, love us in return or trying to love the one we don’t love).

Touche. It hit me to the core.

That’s exactly the root of all my relationship problems. I try too hard.

I try too hard to understand him.

I try too hard to make him happy.

I try too hard to find my way to him.

I try too hard to make him realize that I’m THE ONE.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been to the other side too. I tried to love a very nice guy who loved me deeply. I tried and I tried but I just couldn’t do it. I broke his heart, I said goodbye. He returned everything I gave him in mail, saying that he would not disturb me again.

Don’t worry. He’s all good and alive. He’s married now ๐Ÿ™‚

And me? Still have the most to learn. This is my newly-grasped knowledge: love is simple.

Lucky

I first heard it this morning, sent by Sylvia. Thanks a lot, Cil ๐Ÿ˜‰

I lurveeeeee this song!!! I love Jason Mraz (he’s so so my type) and Colbie Caillat. I don’t mind if they go out. They look (and sound) good together!!!

Anyway, this song inspires me.

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again’

Hi Best Friend, I’m in love with you ๐Ÿ™‚ hahaha… Btw, for you who haven’t heard this song just let me know.

Lyrics

Do you hear me,
I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
