and our lives are forever changed we will never be the same
2004 AD, Sunday 19th September, 18:43. The Hobgoblin, The High Street, Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom: 51.2812°N, 01.0822°E.

Sos: it's me and userinfoDean and userinfoDavid sat round the murky back of the pub after being moved on (thank fuck) from the gaudy Wetherspoons down the road due to lack of ID (the cunts). It's been a long journey this weekend, too long to even gloss over. But sweet hotdamn has it been fun.

I pick at userinfoDean's paprika crisps in an attempt to retain just enough energy to survive the rest of the afternoon. My cider tastes bad and we're too emotionally/physically/etc. tired to speak. I don't hear the jukebox shuffle up its CDs.

Then, all-suddenly-like, a new tune comes on. The music fills the room. It seems to get a little brighter. This song is oh-so-beautiful and, best of all, it's shared.

userinfoDavid claims that the chorus is too anodyne, injected with the artificial happiness of those rising, shimming, positively glowing strings. I don't care. It was fucking fantastic.

believe, believe in me, believe
in the resolute urgency of now
and if you believe there's not a chance tonight
tonight, so bright
tonight
we'll crucify the insincere tonight
we'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
we'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
the indescribable moments of your life tonight
the impossible is possible tonight
believe in me as I believe in you, tonight


Thank you Alternate Perception.

I agree. You should check out Tonite, Reprise - an acoustic version at the end of The Aeroplane Flies High Disc 4. Without the strings, there's a greater emphasis on those beautiful lyrics, and the song seems so much more intimate :)

  love you too
That was harsh. I like el_houghton a lot.

What's more, I don't see anything objectionable about what they said.

"That was harsh. I like el_houghton a lot."

you only say that cos you're probably trying to lay them.

"What's more, I don't see anything objectionable about what they said."

you would say that.
