Wonderwall



Everybody has their own wonderwall. It is something we find ourselves thinking about constantly. It is something we are completely infatuated with. It is something that we have a strong foundation full of admiration towards it. It is something that gives us strength. And this something could be in a form of a person; a significant someone. It is someone we hold most dear. It is the most precious one. It is someone whom we are willing to sacrifice every single thing that we have even though we don’t have anything to offer. It is someone whom we feel safe and alive while we’re being together with. It is someone who gives us spirits and purpose to continue living in this cold and harsh world. It is someone who makes us feel that we are not alone in this cruel and hard life. It is someone whom we always run for in our good days as well as bad days. It is someone whom we look for and who looks for us in every significant moment of our lives. It is someone that we know who is always there for us, as we are always there for them too, in every single way of life.

“And all the roads we have to walk are winding, and all the lights that lead us there are blinding. There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how. Because maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall. –Oasis, Wonderwall

This life is funny yet the funnier thing is that people always make funny mistakes in this funny life. And the funniest thing is that people always tend to make the same mistake over and over again. Well, I guess that’s what makes this life funny. So it’s like a never ending cycle of fun. And yes, what makes it meaningful is when people can learn in the process of the cycle. And in this life where we make mistakes again and again, having someone to hold when things go wrong is probably one of the best feelings in the world. “Today is gonna be the day that they’re gonna throw it back to you. By now you should’ve somehow realized what you gotta do. I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now.” We all make mistakes and there’s no guarantee that we won’t make the same mistake in the distant future. However, we must go forward anyway. “Back beat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out. I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, but you never really had a doubt. I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now.”
Though we make mistakes again and again in this life, we must go forward; for all those mistakes are what enlighten us regarding to what we must and must not do in the future. Every day is a brand new day; and everything we choose to do or not do today will put our future on the map. People will always judge for our mistake. And good things won’t come easily unless we make effort to make it happen. And in this life where we have to fight for our fortunes, having someone to give us strength when hopes are lost is probably one of the best feelings in the world. “Today was gonna be the day, but they’ll never throw it back to you. By now you should’ve somehow realized what you’re not to do. I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now.” We’ve been through hard times before. And this hard time now won’t be the last. Yet we must go through. “And all the roads we have to walk are winding, and all the lights that lead us there are blinding. And all the roads that lead you there were winding, and all the lights that light the way are blinding.”
In this life where the road is rough and the path is hard, having someone to go hand-in-hand with us in our every day is probably one of the best feelings in the world. Some people find it hard to express their feelings through verbal words; especially when it comes to the most sincere and genuine feeling towards the most precious person they hold most dear. For kind of people like that, they can only open up to someone whom they feel safe at home with. However, once they’ve opened up, they can give it all, honestly and purely. “There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how. Because maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall. I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall.” Once they give it all, they will be with you in every of your day, and you will be the person they always run and come to in every of their day, whether it’s good or bad, whether for better or for worse. For that kind of people, you’re their wonderwall.

People are struggling their everyday lives by giving their best effort to seize the day. Every day is an opportunity. We may make mistake yet we may choose the right thing too. Other people may curse at us yet nobody may kindly tell us what to do. And realizing that in the end of the day we have someone who is always there for us is one of the best feelings in the world. Relationships are so complicated and hard to obtain and maintain, indeed. The pain and heartbreak from past relationship might haunt and strangle us forever, causing fears of rejection and many more. However, every day is a brand new day. And realizing that in the end of the day we have someone we can go through it all together is one of the best feelings in the world. Hard times have come so many times before and they will always come again, but as long as we have each other, the presence itself is enough to save our day; a shoulder to cry on and a smile to console when things get hard. And after all, we are the wonderwall for one another.

And all the roads that lead you there were winding, and all the lights that light the way are blinding. There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how. I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall.” –Oasis, Wonderwall




Today is gonna be the day that they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now
Back beat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, but you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding, and all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how
Because maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day, but they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads that lead you there were winding, and all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how
I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall
I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, and after all, you’re my wonderwall
I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me, you’re gonna be the one that saves me, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
