The quote is from the song “23” by Jimmy Eat World. I’ve always been a fan of the band (mostly of their older work such as Clarity and Bleed American.) I’ve come to find that my memories, feelings, and emotions have been documented and portrayed in a lot of their songs- especially on the albums previously mentioned. JEW has not only accomplished this lyrically but through their melodies as well. This particular song, however, has always been the most significant to me. I’ve never heard a lyric that has described something that I’ve felt so deeply in my soul for so long.
