I'm not sure of the exact amount of time but there's a moment where you'll start missing your previous relationship. It's a weird, eerie feeling because sometimes you look back on the past with fondness when it wasn't really that great. Or you'll look back on it and think it was horrible when it was actually pretty good.
But after that, you'll start to get a little confused as to what your memories are telling you. Sometimes they aren't as true as your mind would lead you to believe. And for me, I tend to forget these memories and feelings and get a little bummed out when those thoughts turn into bits of dust or nothingness.
I hate the feeling of forgetting and even when I'm looking back on relationships that I didn't really enjoy, I find myself missing the recollective moments instead of the actual moments. It's one of the reasons I keep a journal and take a bunch of pictures with my phone of moments and times I don't want to forget. Into It. Over It's latest album has a song that definitely encapsulates this feeling. The song itself even sounds eerie. Like it exists between a place of reality and fiction. It's one of my favorite tracks on their new album and I wanted to share it all with you. I hope you can relate.
Photocopied black and white. This is your lasting image. Your colors fade to remain. Distorted grey pressed. Pages marking bigger problems. You choose to keep this as though you fold in two. Just a throwaway.
I have the faintest recollection of us. I have a faded recollection of us.
