Details in the Fabric

Sunday, July 31, 2016




This song is for you, Dian Arymami. And for myself, too. This song is for those times we spent in restlessness; of love, desire, and everything in between. It’s for those times we wondered around thinking about life, people, and everything in between. It’s for those times we sit down talking about feelings, reality, dreams, and everything in between. No, it’s not only about moving on from a broken relationship, but also of all the things that may break a person. Somehow when something is throwing you off your equilibrium, you should by all means try to get a grip of something and save yourself in any way you can. By keeping a part of you sane, you will hold up long enough until someone takes your hand and pulls you up and helps you. Someone out there is coming to help you, so you just have to keep it together as much as you can. And for me, that person is you. And during all of those times, you take my hand, and I take yours too. We pull and help each other. Eventually, we both know that everything happens for a reason. We may not see the reason right now but in time we will. Everything will be fine. Hearts will hold.

Calm down, deep breaths, and get yourself dressed instead of running around, and pulling on your threads, and breaking yourself up. If it’s a broken part, replace it; if it’s a broken arm, then brace it; if it’s a broken heart, then face it. And hold your own, know your name, and go your own way.” –Jason Mraz feat. James Morrison, Details in the Fabric

This song tugs my heartstrings since the first time I heard it. It’s a song called “Details in the Fabric”, performed by American singer-songwriter, Jason Mraz. The pop acoustic track was written by Mraz himself along with Dan Wilson. It’s also featuring English singer-songwriter, James Morrison. “Details in the Fabric” was released as a part of Mraz’s third studio album titled “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.” The album was released on May 12th 2008. On November 18th 2008, the album was re-released with the name “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. Limited Edition.” Listening to “Details in the Fabric” somehow soothe me in a way that it could remind me that there’s gotta be more to life. Whenever I feel down and low in misery and loneliness, this heartwarming song could bring me peace. And so I hope, it could bring the same toward people around me. This is for all of you who feel like the life is so unfriendly nowadays.

This song is telling us to be strong and stop freaking out over one little detail and look at the whole fabric of our life instead. A broken heart hurts and can feel like a rush of emotions, but we need to calm down and try to live our life instead of thinking about it and hurting ourselves further. “Calm down, deep breaths, and get yourself dressed instead of running around, and pulling on your threads, and breaking yourself up. If it’s a broken part, replace it; if it’s a broken arm, then brace it; if it’s a broken heart, then face it. And hold your own, know your name, and go your own way. And everything will be fine.” Comparing a broken heart to something physically missing from an object and physical pain, we know it hurts but there are ways to get past it by ‘replacing the part’ or ‘bracing the broken arm’. The only way to fix a broken heart is just to face it and try to move on. “Hang on, help is on the way, and stay strong, I’m doing everything. Hold your own, know your name, and go your own way. And everything will be fine.”
Don’t give up. If we hang in there, we may find that others care about us and can help with what we are going through. Relating poor or faulty wiring to feeling anxious, just as if our sewing machine has a faulty wire that causes a short circuit, our brain can also have a ‘short circuit’. “Are the details in the fabric, are the things that make you panic, are your thoughts results of static cling? Are the things that make you blow, hell, no reason, go on and scream. If you’re shocked it’s just the fault of faulty manufacturing. Everything will be fine, everything in no time at all, everything. Hold your own, and know your name, and go your own way.” Don’t be dependent on someone else for our happiness. Know that we are our own person and we need to live our life. No matter what has happened, we will find everything to be better in the end through other sources of happiness. Don’t hesitate too much on the little details. Know that if we sweat the small stuff it can easily turn into big stuff. And our thoughts, they are projected in the reality.
“Is it Mother Nature’s sewing machine?” Most of the time when we panic it’s not rational. Our brain is over reacting to everything which may seem like nature being at fault here. We were just wired differently; and that we’re more self-sacrifice than anybody else. That’s just the nature of our self-mechanism. What’s most important to remember is that we’re not crazy. It’s not our fault, but our brain just works differently and that is just a fault of faulty manufacturing in our brain. “Everything will be fine, everything, in no time at all. Hearts will hold.” Whatever it is that makes us get out of control, whether it is anger, anxiety, addiction, or depression, the reasoning behind it is not our fault. There is no reason to get all build up about something that was uncontrollable. Take things as they come and make best of what is dealt to us. Be strong and know who we are and remember who we are and stay true to it even in the toughest times. And believe that even the toughest time too shall pass. Shits happen; just flush it and move on.

Have you ever find yourself just clinging onto stupid little thoughts? Or have you ever wonder that those thoughts cling themselves onto you? In my case, I find that most of the times; over-thinking and overanalyzing over every little thing. There’s nothing wrong with that, I know. However, I also realize that I need to compose and give a rest for myself. Over-thinking and overanalyzing can be quite damaging for me, and I need to get a grip, because when we attract everything to ourselves, our thoughts are projected in reality. In order to do that, all we need is just to meet the right person to talk to; share our thoughts and feelings, discuss our anxiety, fears, and insecurities. And most of the times, you are that person, Dian Arymami. We both know too well that life is indeed always fucked up. And I guess we just deal with how it comes. We deal with the humps and we just take the jumps; hold our own, know our name, and go our own way. Everything will be fine, eventually. And our hearts, our hearts will always hold.

Everything are the details in the fabric, are the things that make you panic, are your thoughts results of static cling? Are the things that make you blow, hell, no reason, go on and scream. If you’re shocked it’s just the fault of faulty manufacturing.” –Jason Mraz feat. James Morrison, Details in the Fabric




Calm down, deep breaths, and get yourself dressed instead
Of running around, and pulling on your threads, and breaking yourself up
If it’s a broken part, replace it; if it’s a broken arm, then brace it; if it’s a broken heart, then face it
And hold your own, know your name, and go your own way
Hold your own, know your name, and go your own way, and everything will be fine

Hang on, help is on the way, and stay strong, I’m doing everything
Hold your own, know your name, and go your own way
Hold your own, know your name, and go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine, everything
Are the details in the fabric, are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?
Are the things that make you blow, hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you’re shocked it’s just the fault of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine, everything in no time at all, everything
Hold your own, and know your name, and go your own way

Are the details in the fabric (hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic, are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)
Are the details in the fabric (hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic (go your own way) is it Mother Nature’s sewing machine?
Are the things that make you blow (hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream, if you’re shocked it’s just the fault (go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing, everything will be fine
Everything, in no time at all, hearts will hold
