[Playlist] Too Good To Be True

Why is it that the things we think will be perfect for us turn out to be…well, impossible? I’ve always loathed the saying of, “too good to be true,” because it makes life sound like one big hellish mess but after the week I’ve had, I’m starting to understand it now.

These 14 songs are about being shafted by the things we thought were meant for us in some way. I’ve spent most of this week ruminating over a decision I made this past weekend that I’m regretting more than anything. I did it out of respect for someone yet I can’t help but feel stupid for always feeling so out of place and shy all the time that it’s hard for me to be outgoing when I really like someone.

Opening track, “Impossible,” by MOTHXR explains it all in the opening lines – “I want so much. So much.The 1975‘s “A Change of Heart” has been like therapy lately with the line, “For goodness sake, I wasn’t told you’d be this cold. Now it’s my time to depart and I just had a change of heart.” Then of course, Flor closes us out with the infamous “Let Me In” – a sentiment I literally couldn’t stop thinking while I found myself on a city street on a chilly Sunday afternoon, outside looking in at someone I never thought would be so cold.
