The worst thing about break ups is that they ruin songs.
Good Life by OneRepublic used to be one of my favorite songs. Now I literally cannot listen to it without crying. Without remembering driving around Mackinaw City in the summer with the windows down, hand wound in hers, blaring that song. Some of the best times in my life happened to the sound of that song, some of the purest moments of happiness I’ve ever experienced. And if my current girlfriend and I break up, I won’t be able to listen to The Prayer by Kid Cudi - she loves that song and in fact is getting part of it tattooed on her ribs. Also, a lot of rap songs will remind me of her, since we tend to have sex to rap a lot…Songs are so powerful in bringing memories of the people I love. It’s so fucking bittersweet and I hate it.
