Compare And Contrast Essay On Fall For You By Secondhand Serenade

Good Essays
"Touche." We both laugh as the playlist loads. 'Fall for You ' by Secondhand Serenade starts playing through the speakers, I do a happy dance in my seat.

"Wha-" Ash starts but I reach over and hit him in the chest.

"No. Sh." Then I start belting out the lyrics like my life depended on it. I can feel Ash 's eyes on me so I calm down a bit but still continue singing.

By the time the song ends, we 're a couple lights away from Jake 's. That stupid, over-played, new Adele song comes on.

"Next." The song skips and I hear Ash tsk at me. "Oh god don 't tell me that you 're corrupted too."

"Have you ever even listened to it?"

"No."

"Then try. Previous." The song starts playing and I slowly start dying.

"This is stupid." Ash puts his hand

I see." He thinks for a minute. "I think I can work it into my schedule."

"Wait, what? Seriously?" I look at him completely surprised. "You haven 't even seen my work. For all you know I suck."

"I have seen your work Ms. Gore Princess and even if I hadn 't I can 't pass down the chance to teach someone."

"Gore Princess?" Ash jumps in.

"It my instagram page." I respond.

"Ah."

"Anyway, I 'll have Ash let you know when I have some time, okay?"

"If he doesn 't flee the scene." Me and Jake laugh. "I should probably take him back to his hotel now. And by the way that whole phone call thing this morning was a joke."

"I know. I was just fucking with him." He winks as I turn and start walking towards the door.

"Lets go I guess." Ash says quietly. We walk out together and the drive is quiet until two block away from his hotel. We 're stopped at a red light when Ash breaks the silence. He says something but I couldn 't hear him.

"Please look at me. I 'm half-deaf." He turns his head. His eyes are slightly red.

"I 'm not going to leave."

"W-What? What are you talking about?"

"You say that as if I was going to really

I will never break my promises."

"Except that 's one promise you can 't keep. Nothing lasts forever. Everyone dies." I feel tears start to roll down my cheeks.

"Just because you die doesn 't mean you 're gone." We sit in silence for a while. I cry quietly. Ash just stares out the window.

I was lost in my own thoughts when a familiar hand wrapping around mine brings me back. Ash was holding my hand. He softly rubbed the back of my hand with his thumb. I looked up at him and we made eye contact.

"Feeling your touch is the only thing that has felt real in years. It 's one of the few sure things I 've had in life. You make me feel alive. Before I met you, I was just on autopilot. I didn 't make any of my own decisions. I was miserable. And then I sat next you on that plane. Seeing you react to the height was adorable. Your poems are amazing. You are perfect. My definition of perfect." He pauses for a second. "A, I am not going anywhere. I am going to stay right here, next to you, for as long as I 'm allowed to."

I knew he was going to say more but I didn 't let him. I kissed him. I just kissed him.

I just kissed Ash

I can hear your laugh in that video too.…

    One time I think he figured it out, but if he did he never said anything. The rest didn’t seem to catch on. My doctors say I need to stop living in the past, but writing to you helps, dear diary. Screaming into unresponsive paper until my thoughts are hoarse and are too tired to harm me. I don’t cry much, because I was always told not to cry, to count to ten and let it go.…

    In this case the devices used add to the overall feel and theme of the song. All through the song there are multiple cases of enjambment. One of the most significant cases is when Tyler says, “Oh my, /Too deep/Please stop thinking.” Breaking up this sentence into three parts makes it stand out more. When things don’t flow smoothly together it can catch people off guard and make them listen. In this part of the song he is just waiting and wanting all of his thoughts to stop and be able to feel a sense of relief.…

    The blaring music starts and the sound of catchy beats, bad cheer music, and country songs fill the stadium 's ears. Our upbeat pom mix is the start of many contagions, sharp movements, and formations. The crowd is going wild. The Highsteppers are basking in all the glory FHS provides us. The “ohs” and “aws” keep us going as the dance quickly drains us of all the energy we could possibly have.…

At the funeral I sat with my grandma, watching her cry, her face filled with pain as tears dropped slowly down her face. I got up and slowly walked toward the front of the room and gazed back at everyone in the room, watching their faces filled with sadness. I turned…
