Our Life – an Audience Song by Isla

The Song – Our Life

This is our life
And we are falling apart the way we like
This is our home
And we can pull it to pieces, but not alone

Ahhhhh

Last night we built a fire
and it was nice
We made a toast to the years
That matter the most

Don’t take too long my love, I swear
We’ve still got stories left to share
I wanna know you with no hair
You bought me flowers, said you’d prove
Your love to me before they bloom
They’re dropping petals in our living room

Tomorrow
Leave the light off and I’ll go
In the morning
When your eyes are still closed

I won’t get to sleep tonight, it’s fine my love
Could you keep holding me
I don’t mind winter time with you my love
Could you keep holding me

It’s bittersweet
I wouldn’t change a thing
It’s bittersweet
I wouldn’t change a thing

Don’t take too long my love, I swear
We’ve still got stories left to share
I wanna know you with no hair
You bought me flowers, said you’d prove
Your love to me before they bloom
They’re dropping petals in our living room

The Story

The challenge of getting over someone… felt love and hurt and sadness

We’ve been together 3 years, we’ve travelled the world and rented a house. He wanted to grow as a person and to find himself which meant the end of our relationship. We are both in love with each other still.

Now it’s been 3 weeks since we’ve broken up and we still live in our rental (lease ends in a few weeks) and we cook together and watch friends and laugh and cuddle and it’s so magical, yet it’s over. Every day I am overcome with sadness and a need to cry. I hope we are meant to be and growth and a little bit of time is all he needs. We just want to be best friends now. I wouldn’t want anything less.

He bought be flowers and he said by the time they bloom I will prove to you that I still love you and how much our friendship means.

I’ve fought so hard and I would do anything to keep him but one day we decided I should stop fighting as it’s not what he wants right now. I’m so torn about how to feel, I ask for advice and some people are harder than others and don’t understand why we are still in our house.

I’ve learned that there are no rules to a relationship ending and to continue on as best friends. This could be a step back for us, which actually could be beneficial for both of us and it might even allow us to then take two steps forward. I want to grow old with him and I think we are perfect for each other. I don’t think it’s a normal break up because our feeling -if not sad- are just happy, happy to be with each other and spending time together.

This is our life and we are breaking up the way we want to.

Sure it would be easy to get angry and never talk again. But why take the easy road. Even now we have both grown and matured and have so much respect for each other. I don’t think we will ever stop loving each other either. This is worth fighting for and we are both making the effort. – Anonymous
