22, NEUTRAL GOOD, also Filipino. I like music, films, the girl and a lot of other typical things. I write to cope with life. Look, I'm just trying to grow up now. About Me, Music Rec, Absolutepunk,
I found his music way back 2011, when he released his first album, that time of my life when the ocean had overrun the shores. I was frustrated with school and myself and knowing there was a slim chance that I would actually do whatever it is that I wanted to do when I grow up. I was drowning; the waves violently pushing me far, far away. And I was helpless ‘cause I didn’t know how to swim. At this point maybe I should mention that there were two things in my life that remained constant - the only figures of buoyancy I can maintain: music, and the person I was dating (Miss Bigwig). I was in Atlantis (aka lost) but wasn’t aware of it, my mouth muted from the water in my lungs and my ears silenced by the depth of the great unknown. Only my sight was left, and it was fading slowly. But it was fading nonetheless. And as I was losing my senses and close to falling asleep, a hand came from above eager to pull me up. And I grasped on firmly to that hand, clinging desperately to that only rope of hope. I managed to come back alive. This was how those two constants made me feel - always pulling me back when I’m lost in the sea of my own thoughts.
Three years later, as I hear Charlie Simpson recite these new words of his with a melody, I can only smile. We’ve swam a really long way since then. :)
