My Favourite

What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.

In this day and age in which we live, I think it’s actually pretty hard to be entirely away from people.

When I’ve been away on holiday or with work, phones and e-mail mean you never really feel apart because talking, messaging, e-mailing and even seeing someone in real time is now not just normal but easy. Social networking means that we can always know or infer what is going on with someone else using the service.

Even physically, the world is a small place. About 5 years ago a group of us went on holiday to Spain but one person may have needed to leave at short notice. Even getting from where we were to back home could only have taken 4 hours door to door. My friend in Australia, cost permitting, could be “home” in around a day if he needed to be.

All that said, I’ve still missed physically being in the company of someone or some people that I haven’t seen for a while. I always like to see friends after I’ve been on holiday and I remember last time I got back from America I battled jet lag to be a teetotal at a beer festival so I could see my friends the day I got back.

Hello there,
The angel from my nightmare,
The shadow in the background of the morgue.
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley.
We can live like Jack and Sally
If we want.

Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas.
And in the night we’ll wish this never ends,
We’ll wish this never ends.

(I miss you, miss you)
(I miss you, miss you)

Where are you?
And I’m so sorry.
I cannot sleep, I cannot dream tonight.
I need somebody and always
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time.

And as I stared I counted
The webs from all the spiders
Catching things and eating their insides.

Like indecision to call you
And hear your voice of treason.
Will you come home and stop this pain tonight?
Stop this pain tonight.

Don’t waste your time on me.
You’re already the voice inside my head.
(I miss you, miss you)
Don’t waste your time on me.
You’re already the voice inside my head.
(I miss you, miss you)
