Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore

Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore
Bon Jovi (Feat. Leanne Rimes)

It might be hard to be lovers
But it's harder to be friends
Baby, pull down the covers
It's time you let me in
Maybe light a couple candles
I'll just go ahead and lock the door
If you just talk to me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore

Lay your head on my pillow
I sit beside you on the bed
Don't you think its time we say
Some things we haven't said
It ain't too late to get back to that place
Back to where, we thought it was before
Why don't you look at me
Till we ain't strangers anymore

Sometimes it's hard to love me
Sometimes it's hard to love you too
I know it's hard believing
That love can pull us through
It would be so easy
To live your life

With one foot out the door
Just hold me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore


It's hard to find forgiveness
When we just turn out the light
It's hard to say you're sorry
When you can't tell wrong from right
It would be so easy
To spend your whole damn life
Just keeping score
So let's get down to it baby
There ain't no need to lie

Tell me who you think you see
When you look into my eyes
Lets put our two hearts back together
And we'll leave the broken pieces on the floor
Make love with me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore

We're not strangers anymore
We're not strangers
We're not strangers anymore

How Ready Are You To Fall In Love Again?

Was reading a post from Elizabeth Marie and I came across this:

Falling in love can be one of the most beautiful experiences we will ever have. But things don’t always work out according to plan. As the glow of your love fades into a distant memory, you might find yourself wondering how you could have been so wrong about love, and how sure are you that you’ve found it again. Letting go isn’t easy, but it may be worth after the pain. Who knows? A better person may appear & bring sparkles to your life once more. 

Below are some ways for those who are healing from a break-up & it tells you that how you've moved on with your past relationship and are ready to fall in love again. 

1. You aren’t constantly asking yourself “What if…” It’s normal to look back on past relationships and briefly wonder what could have been different, but if you find yourself permanently rooted in coulda, woulda, shoulda land, it might be a sign that you aren’t ready to move on. There are always going to be things you wish you could change, but it’s impossible to go back in time. Coming to peace with where you are in life and in love isn’t easy, but it’s worth it to be free from the past.

2. You are totally content on your own. When a relationship ends, a knee jerk reaction is to jump head first into the dating game. Sometimes though, it’s best to hold back. Instead of worrying about how to act on a first date and all the stress that comes with dating, take some time to focus on yourself and regroup. This way, when you do meet someone special, you’ll know you want them simply because they’re awesome, not as a distraction to your broken heart.

3. You are being honest with yourself. You know what one of the worst feelings ever is? Dating a guy who is great/amazing/wonderful…only to know deep down in your heart that you just aren’t over your ex yet. Timing really is everything in this situation-no matter how badly you wish you were further along in the healing process, it can’t be rushed.

4. You are open with friends and family. Sure, you don’t have to tell your inner circle everything, but generally speaking if you feel good about something, you want to share it. Introducing a new love to those who are most important to you solidifies to them that you have moved on-and want them to move forward as well.

5. You aren’t hoping for a reconciliation. Some breakups, specifically divorces, are particularly painful and take a toll on every aspect of your life. Even if the relationship was clearly wrong for you, in the back of your mind you might find yourself wishing you and your ex would get back together because it would just be easier.But if you are truly ready to fall in love again, you won’t give up until you’re free from the past and have broken through to the other side.

**Does it trigger your thoughts after reading? How ready are you now? :)
