I’m doing the norm, and not what it takes…

I can’t find the words, so you’ll just fill in the blanks
I’m doing the norm and not what it takes
I’ll keep folding my cards and you’ll keep raising the stakes
‘Til we forget about us and what we have is too late

It’s Monday already, and I think I’m still recovering from Friday. It’s all about that YOLO lifestyle until you die a thousand times the next day. So, apart from dancing up a storm to Ginuwine’s Pony and losing my wallet, I’ve been listening to Big K.R.I.T’s 4Eva N A Day on repeat, and pushing the replay button more often than not on this ‘Red Eye’ track. It’s the struggle of knowing something is missing in your relationship, and knowing you need to do more to make it work – but for whatever reason, you just can’t put in what’s required. The love is there, but you question if it’s enough. You can’t give them your all, but you don’t want to let them go.  Maybe it’s because in the back of your mind, you know the other person already has one foot out the door. Maybe you do too.

When he ends the song with ‘I ain’t the man you want me to be, I guess that’s what’s been bothering me’ – Dagger. to. the. heart.
