The Guy you Noticed.

The Guy You Noticed.

Goodbye ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I'm going to miss you.


I wish it was raining right now. I wish that I could hear it pouring down. I want to hear the crash of thunder, and watch the lighting light up my living room. I want to smell it in the air, and feel the static in the air as it rises up the hair on my arms.

there's a cloud that wonder's aimlessly
As I'm trying to hold on
There's a breeze blowing carelessly
As I'm trying to hang on


I remember blue October days, and gray November nights. I sit here, and my thoughts are obscure, I am abstract. You don't know me, you don't know these things. I'm that guy you saw at the bar, he's sitting alone, both elbows propped up, while he is swinging his feet under the bar chair. I'm that guy, I'll be there, but I won't so much as look at you, not that you noticed anyway. Take a closer look.

Do you remember?
Chalk hearts melting on a playground wall
Do you remember?
Dawn escapes from moon washed college halls
Do you remember?
The cherry blossom in the market square
Do you remember?
I thought it was confetti in our hair


I'm not drinking beer; there are no shot glasses in front of me, just a single glass of some dark liqueur obviously mixed with ice and coke. You don't know this, but the song you are listening to on the juke box and everyone for the next three hours we're all picked by me. That one that just brought you back to an old memory, maybe even an old flame, I gave you that memory.

We spotted the ocean
At the head of the trail
Were are we going
So far away
Somebody told me
That this is the place
Where everything's better
Where everything's safe


One more drink, please Brad,

First name basis with the bartender? You come here all the time, you never seen me have you? I don't come here often really. You probably won't see me again. So I suppose that it really doesn't matter, but then again. How many things have to happen before two distant people can meet, how many degrees of separation can there really be? If you were late to school one day when you were a kid, does that mean it delayed the rest of my life for five minutes?

I don't know so I won't ask
I think its best that way
I can't be held responsible
For what you didn't say
So let's pretend that I'm not me
And its not you for awhile


What kind of choices did I make, what kind did you make that brought us here at this exact moment, at this perfect time. How many forces in both of our lives brought us together on one fateful night, just to look at each from across a bar downtown? And then back to our very separate and very different worlds.

How could I try to explain?
When I do he turns away again
It's always been the same old story
From the moment I could talk
I was ordered to listen
There's a way, and I know
That I have to go away


Look at the door, I don't know what's going on behind it. There is a world, and there is life out there. But the only thing I see is the space between me, and the wood frame and a knob.

I like to hide in plain sight and be obscure most days. Thanks for the songs (and observations).

This is my blog - Comes With Warning Labels. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

The last time I stared at a door that hard, I noticed the wood grain pattern looked a lot like a vagina with all the parts - freaky weird. What does that mean? What does that say about me?

And I would have been the girl sitting in the darkest corner of that bar watching you... watch the door. Wondering if you might ever look my direction and if you did, would you smile? Would you nod?
Would you quickly look away?

Great Post!
This was very well written, Kalie.

I'm the girl in the corner who would be afraid to walk past you to go to the restroom because you might look at my big butt...I would wait all night but at least you would give me someone to stare at and wonder about


Oh WHATEVER BITCHES!
