The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

I think you should listen to Timbaland’s “Undertow” today

Sometimes you just need to let things out, and this song just feels so cathartic. For me it sounds like the last legs of a relationship. When they both know it’s bound to end, but they want to hold on, but circumstances are too much for them to survive.

It romanticizes the end. Most times it’s just fucked up you know? And sometimes, the circumstances are real. No amount of romanticism can overcome timing and compatibility. Some people choose to hold on, some let go.

The lyrics that hit me the most are:

I don’t want to cry, every time we try, it never fails
We change the illusion, whenever you go and set the sail
My heart’s in your hand, don’t you go hurt me again
All we got is one chance and it’s sink or swim
