thinking I might drown if the waves aren't right
wind pushing me from side to side
and I'm thinking, of what I had.
How if I broke my legs and I broke my head,
even after all the things we've said
you'd still be there by the side of the road
waiting for me to breathe...
You're my sweetheart
You're my sweetheart
and If I never see you again,
just want you to know what I think
Sammy took me out for a walk in the park
and as the dog ran round the track's lights lit up
people running round in their shorts in the rain
again and again
He said "You can come back tomorrow,
you know you can", I said
" You know I don't wanna do that man"
so he told me he loved me and he shook my hand,
now I'm waiting, shaking in my van.
Thinking that you're my sweetheart
you're my sweetheart,
if I never see you again,
just want you to know what I think -
cos we got so far to go,
are we gonna get by?
I can hardly see the road,
yeah but I'm gonna try,
I'm gonna try....
Cos you're my sweetheart.
Whether we're together in a knot or not
is small beer compared to what we got
so don't smoke yourself to death I shall be the one
who'll always be there, if you've got to run.
Yeah I'll be there, if you've got to run
Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.Meredith
