I would have posted this a while ago but since I just got off of hiatus, you must forgive my tardiness. Anywho, this duet of Gotye and Kimbra kind of touches home, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. I often find post-relationships so odd. When you're with someone, there are always the typical stages: the crush, infatuation, comfort, annoyances, Awkwardness, and the point of no return (o_0 ) [yikes!]. Most of us have experiences a few of these, if not all. I definitely have! If you think about it though, isn't it strange how a stranger can turn into your everything. I'm talking about your every waking moment and your dreams. Some people even change their entire life goals for the convenience of the person that they love. But when that break up happens and time mends things, sometimes you let that person [who was once your everything] fade away.
Not to be all sappy. I know some are reading this like yeah yeah whatevuuuh. But seriously though. If you think back to the people that you have seriously dated in the past and look at how you interact with them now, a lot of times these people end up being strangers again, as they were in the first place. So when this happens, does that mean that time didn't count? Do memories fade too? And it always seems that its harder for one person to move on than the other. Have you ever reconnected with an ex? Call me pessimistic but I definitely have and it is NEVER the same as it was before.
I feel that this song illustrates this awkward reverse of events and brings up a good point that many of us don't even realize.
