Day 24: A song from a local band
pedro the lion - i am always the one who calls

so i'm changing the next two prompts because i couldn't come up with anything for them even though i think i'm the one who came up with them in the first place. whatever.

anyway, i had a dream last night that reminded me of this song. i've always found the chorus strangely romantic (clear as a bell are the short breaths / that you take when you're distracted / same as the way that you roll your eyes / when i've asked too many stupid questions).

that's the part of a relationship i always look forward to—where i can walk into the room and hear her concentrating, where she realizes she probably shouldn't take me particularly seriously. plus, it means you're done with the beginning part where you're running around trying to impress the other person. i'm not particularly impressive so that's always super stressful. i'm getting stressed out just describing it!
