I have a picture pinned to my wall

"You say I'm a dreamer,
we're two of a kind,
with both of us searching for some perfect world,
we know we'll never find.

So perhaps I should leave here,
yeah yeah and go far away,
but you know that there's nowhere that I'd rather be,
than with you here today."

'Hold Me Now' ~ Thompson Twins

I have so many memories attached to this song, which is most probably a testament to my age, and the era that I was an adolescent. It reminds me of high school dances, John Hughes films, and sleepovers with my friends. I'm pretty sure I did some kind of make-shift karaoke (you know, two girls with a tape recorder singing/'recording" in the bathroom) to this song.

Something about the song though, and the lyrics, still matter to me today. They transcend some of the over-wrought nostalgia that floods through my skin when I hear it. Though honestly, most of the feeling is from the point of view of a sixteen year old girl with band posters tacked up on her walls.
