“I don’t want you thinking I’m bothered or anything about last night. I don’t want your phone number, or letters or postcards. I don’t want to get married to you.

‘Cause I couldn’t live without sunsets that dazzle in the dusk. So I’ll drag the anchor up and rest assured, ’cause dreams don’t turn to dust. – Owl City (Dreams Don’t Turn To Dust)
