Take A Chance With Me

His laugh you’d die for, his laugh you’d die for – the kind that colors the sky.”

Something about this song being the last chapter of Nicole after Oceans & Engines and On The Drive Home made me realize that maybe we can finally live pass through it — the question that were left unanswered. It makes me realize too that loving someone is so much fun and lovely. To have the ability to make them smile and laugh which makes you love them more. Just the thought of them existing is already so comforting.

Take A Chance With Me is for the one who can finally admit that being in love is not that scary, for someone who doesn’t hesitate again to take a risk despite, despite, despite, and to those people out there who have realize that the world still has so much love to give because it always within yourself.

The sweetest fragrance.

What is it? Where is it? This perfume of heavenly affection bring us closer every moment. Sometimes the universe will really just give you someone that ends up meaning way more than you could have ever imagined.

It’s not a lover. It just someone who makes you smile, laugh, and feel understood and worthy of love.

To stumble in the dark and struggle living in my own mind with the coldness of my heart, that doesn’t let anyone dive through the maze of my life when I’m alone this time.

I can’t do anything, that is true, but here you came into my life. You came like the softest yet strongest wave. The one who lights up my day, week, month, and year – to make me feel like I’m good. To help me forget the worst of all.

Back when we were young, I remember you vowed to keep me safe. Even now, eighteen years later, a few relationships gone by, and more fights than I care to admit between the two of us, you’re still here.

I thought being polar opposites with you doesn’t make us connected. It’s funny because it turns out that I’d do anything just to stop time and space only to make you smile.

He is not the kind of person that I pictured catching feelings for since we’ve been friends for years. He is still look like a clueless little kid. I didn’t even realize when it all started, but every time he is far away — it always feels empty and strange.

Maybe it all started when I find him cute or when he always find a way to be there for me or when he throws his head back laughing or when someone pointed out every little things he did to me and I suddenly pay attention and give an excuse to stare at him while he is talking.

Now why can’t we for once say what we feel?

A human whose eyes were soft, a gaze that made me feel seen. I loved watching your eyes sparklin whenever you talked about something that you like. You have stars in your eyes. I looked into a pair of eyes and felt safe. I like looking at it.

They told me, “In the end you will only regret the chances you didn’t take.”

So, do you want to take a chance with me like the water does to every seed?

I want to know everything about you. What makes you happy? What makes you laugh? What keeps you up at night? What kind of meals do you make for yourself since you always put your friends first? Do you have any comfort songs or films? How do you cope with stress?

I want to learn every nook, every inch, and every single part of you that you’re willing to share. I want to know you. It’s because I like you. I think, I am afraid to write the stronger word. And I wonder that you like me, too. I can’t wait for us to admit it to each other. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

And then one day we had a little talk on the phone — there you said, “If you do and if you’re ready willing to be with a bloke like me, then maybe we can start figuring us out. I don’t want to get ahead of myself but maybe you could come and visit me in Amsterdam? I remember you told me it was one of the places you’ve wanted to visit since you were a little girl. It could possibily more easier to talk about us. Just say the word and I’ll take care of the rest,”

Or we can talk about this as well once I get back there next month. I’ll wait and make it up to you.”
