I Want the One I Can’t Have

The absolute truth of the matter is that someone, somewhere started off a chain reaction of unrequited love. And so it goes, on and on down the line, passed on like deformed DNA, and I am just one link in that long, replicated sequence. It’s chemistry or it’s music. It’s a sad, rotten dirge—you and me are syncopated eighth notes hanging off the measure. You and me are pratically a Smiths song.
