“I still search for you in crowds,
in empty fields and soaring clouds.
In city lights and passing cars,
on winding roads and wishing stars.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Acceptance

There are things I miss
that I shouldn't,
and those I don't
that I should.

Sometimes we want
what we couldn't—
sometimes we love
who we could.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Where are you?” She asked. “I have been searching all my life.” “Stop looking for me,” Love replied, “and I will find you.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I drew him in my world;
I write him in my lines,
I want to be his girl,
he was never meant as mine.

I drew him in my world;
He is always on my mind;
I draw his every line.
It hurts when he's unkind.

I drew him in my world;
I draw him all the time,
but I don't know where to draw the line.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Regrets

Timing is irrelevant when two people are meant for each other. It's what I once believed.

But we met during a time when I was such a mess, when I still had so much to figure out. How could I have known how crucial every word, every action was or how losing you would be something I would always regret?

If only you could have met me now, how different it would be. How much I have changed. How I have grown. I learned so much from all the mistakes I made with you. I just wish I had made them with someone else.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I love you, I do -
you have my word.

You have all my words.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Here are the things I want for you -

I want you to be happy. I want someone else to know the warmth of your smile, to feel the way I did when I was in your presence.

I want you to know how happy you once made me and though you really did hurt me, in the end, I was better for it. I don't know if what we had was love, but if it wasn't, I hope to never fall in love. Because of you, I know I am too fragile to bear it.

I want you to remember my lips beneath your fingers and how you told me things you never told another soul. I want you to know that I have kept sacred, everything you had entrusted in me and I always will.

Finally, I want you to know how sorry I am for pushing you away when I had only meant to bring you closer. And if I ever felt like home to you, it was because you were safe with me. - I want you to know that most of all.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I wanted everything because I didn't want anything enough.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“The Saddest Thing
There was someone I knew, a long time ago. I was so in love with him I couldn’t see straight. The saddest thing is, he felt the same way about me.

It was easy in the beginning. All we had to do was laugh at the same things and love took care of the rest. I had never felt so connected to another person.

He would always say it felt as though I was made for him. How glad he was to have met me. We were so sure of what we felt. We should have held tight, onto that certainty.

There is never one particular reason why two people are pulled apart. All these years later, I have stopped looking for answers. I know better now, that love is never a guarantee. Not when you have the rest of the world to contend with.

Sometimes you have to step back and look at these things from a philosophical standpoint. And I know loving him has taught me something about myself, it has broadened my understanding of the world. And if it has done the same for him, then it wasn’t all in vain.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Time

You were the one
I wanted most
to stay.

But time could not
be kept at bay.

The more it goes,
the more it's gone—
the more it takes away.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies

“Which is why I am not here to tell you tomorrow will be a new day. That the sun will go on shining. Or there are plenty of fish in the sea. What I will tell you is this; it’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary—because it makes you so much more human. And though I can’t promise it will get better any time soon, I can tell you that it will—eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I loved you more than loved allowed”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Three Questions What was it like to love him? asked Gratitude. It was like being exhumed, I answered. And brought to life in a flash of brilliance. What was it like to be loved in return? asked Joy. It was like being seen after a perpetual darkness, I replied. To be heard after a lifetime of silence. What was it like to lose him? asked Sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded: It was like hearing every good-bye ever said to me—said all at once.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“When someone stirs a world of emotion in you and it’s so intense you can barely stand to be with him.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Strange how it mattered so much, when now it matters so little.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I still search
for you in crowds,
in empty fields
and soaring clouds.
In city lights
and passing cars,
on winding roads
and wishing stars.

I wonder where
you could be now,
for years I’ve not said
your name out loud.

And longer since
I called you mine—
time has passed
for you and I.

But I have learnt
to live without,
I do not mind—
I still love you anyhow.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Tell me if you ever cared,
if a single thought
for me was spared.

Tell me when you lie in bed,
do you think of something
I once said.

Tell me if you hurt at all,
when someone says
my name with yours.

It may have been so long ago,
but I would give
the world to know.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Hands are no longer hands. They are caresses. Mouths are no longer mouths. They are kisses. My name is no longer a name, it is a call. And love is no longer love — love is you.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“If any person claims to have loved twice in all their life — they have not loved at all.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“We’re kids, aren't we?
Yes, kids with grown-up powers.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies

“He swept in like a tsunami, wave after wave, and I didn’t stand a chance. All those warnings, all the things they tried to prepare me for—lost in an instant—to the enormity of what I felt.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Or that one person whom you rarely speak with, who can always be found right where you left them. You carry their smile with you like a talisman—for whatever reason, their presence in your life will always bring the promise of better days.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“I loved you more than love allowed”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“If a boy ever says, you remind me of someone--don't fall in love with him. You will never be anything more than second best.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“The End
"I don't know what to say," he said.
"It's okay," she replied, "I know what we are - and I know what we're not.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“And I sighed and wept for what could not be--and for all that could have been.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies

“Tell Me
Tell me if you ever cared,

do you think of something

Tell me if you hurt at all,

my name with yours.

It may have been so long ago,
but I would give

Lang Leav, Lullabies
“The words I heard from you today, are said when there’s nothing left to say.   What I would give to make you stay,   I would give it all away.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
“Thoughts of You

There were times when I was with him and it was too much. Does that make sense? When someone stirs a world of emotion in you and it's so intense you can barely stand to be with him.

During those moments, I wanted so desperately to leave - to go home, walk into my bedroom, and shut the door behind me. Crawl into bed and lay there in the dark, tracing the outline of my lips with my fingers - replaying everything he said, everything we did. I wanted to be left alone - with nothing other than my thought of him.”
Lang Leav, Lullabies
