Just Because I Miss You


I put this together for you because all of these songs have a moment and a place for us in my head, and I thought that I would share that with you :) A little something to remember where we come from.

  • Stranger by Chris August
    One of the first songs I noticed you were really into- Then when we got a little closer, we'd sing it together and I think it just fit that time really well. It's sort of cute to look back and see how those sort of things happen :)
  • Tonight by FM Static
    This song used to play in your car all the time, and I didn't know it until I heard it then, when I fell in love with it. At the time I was still kind of shy around you but I had a feeling it would be a relevant song in the future. And to this day, it reminds me of sitting in your car at night in my apartment complex's parking lot (with the security guard hanging out...)
  • Brand New Day by user2293374
    Lyrics from this song were the first thing you tweeted after that hours long conversation we had when I told you how I felt about you :)
  • "Brielle" by Sky Sailing, An Airplane Carried Me To Bed
    The summer that we took MCAT classes together, the opening for this song was your alarm tone. By the end of the summer, when I had to go to Guatemala and go home for a while, I couldn't listen to the song anymore because it made me too sad. Back then, being apart for a month or two felt like too much, imagine!
  • Pegadito by Tommy Torres
    This was one of the first songs you sent to me, and I was so touched because not only is it a sweet song, but it's in Spanish. It meant a lot that you listened to some Latin music and (presumably) looked up the translation of the lyrics to make sure it was fitting :)
  • YouTube by Bruno Mars
    Even if it got overplayed before it was supposed to be 'our song', it will always be special to me. I hope that you always feel this way as you did then. I know that for you, I would never have it any other way.
  • Endlessly by Green River Ordinance
    You introduced Green River Ordinance to me when we just started talking, and at that moment I secretly wished that one day, you would think of me when you heard this song.
  • Los Angeles by Peter Bradley Adams
    This one, I think, speaks for itself.

It was just sort of a random thing we decided to do one afternoon, to go up to Mt. Soledad together. Just because we hadn't been there together yet. I remember that the wind was chilly, and we got cold really quickly, but it was clear and sunny and there was a great view of UCSD, of La Jolla, of places that both of us had lots of memories that were still sort of painful to come to terms with, even if they were good ones. Looking at those little pockets from up high, I saw where we would meet in between classes, where we first held hands and Jess got mad at us, where I would smile at you and wait for you to look up and notice, where I picked flowers and made you wear them in your hair.

It was quiet, and you asked me if I thought we would ever end up back here. I said maybe, but that it felt haunted now. I don't know where we're going or where we'll end up, I just knew a little less then. But what I do know is that I think about these little places all the time and remember the most beautiful thing to have happened to me- the best love story that a strange little girl like me could hope for, and the beautiful city that wove it together.
