The girl in the pick up truck

En route from Baguio to Manila earlier today, I found myself listening to mellow music. I'm a melody person. Hence when I listen to music, I tend to judge whether I like a song or not based on the catchiness of its tune rather than its message. Oftentimes, my boyfriend makes fun of me for liking songs that are totally not applicable to me, like heartbreak or devastation.

For lack of better things to do (or maybe it's the mountain scenery or the cool Baguio breeze, hmm) and to divert myself from getting dizzy, I decided to REALLY focus on the lyrics of the songs this time.

Too many billion people
Running around the planet
What is the chance in heaven
That you'd find your way to me

Tell me what is this sweet sensation
It's a miracle that's happened
Though I search for an explanation
Only one thing it could be

That I was born for you
It was written in the stars
Yes, I was born for you
And the choice was never ours
It's as if the powers of the universe
Conspired to make you mine
And 'til the day I die,
I blessed the day that I was born for you

I think the song is for hopeless romantics, which I am not (???). It talks about being destined to love someone in this world which, quite honestly, I don't really believe in because I'd much rather believe in having a choice rather than being "destined" to love someone. 

Or maybe the choice itself is destined? So it may seem like one had a choice but in reality, one was destined to choose what he chose? Aaaaaahhhhhhhh! Ang gulo. I'm too beat to think straight right now.
