If life is full of surprises,

then you shouldn’t be surprised

at all.

(Interlude)

What ever happened to Jeff Buckley´s lover?

 

«Οh drink a bit of wine»
he said
«We both might go tomorrow»
he wrote.
«Let me say goodbye,
’cause you don’t remember who you were
and I don’t know who I ever have been».
30-year-old drowned in the river.
Guitars kept weeping.
No one knows what happened to Jeff Buckley's lover,
who just didn’t know.

Comfort zone

 

That awkward state of existence

where everything you hate

is only what you crave for
