Riff: The xx – “Fiction”

Aug 3, 2012

Were we torn apart by the break of day?/ You’re more than I can believe

from Fiction lyrics by The xx

Deciphering mirage from reality can always be difficult, but it becomes even more troubling when your imagination gets the best of you. This hopeless romantic – or horny bastard – wants to wake up next to the person of his dreams. He’s haunted and taunted by the vision he’s dreamed for them.

    I can totally relate. what happens when someone is more than you can believe? waste time or leave
