Come Here baby
You know you drive me up a wall the way you make good on all the nasty tricks you pull
Seems like we're makin' up more than we're makin' love
And it always seems you got somn' on your mind other than me
Girl, you got to change your crazy ways
You hear me

Say you're leavin' on a seven thirty train and that you're headin' out to Hollywood
Girl you been givin' me that line so many times it kinda gets like feelin' bad looks good

That kinda lovin'
Turns a man to a slave
That kinda lovin'
Sends a man right to his grave...

I go crazy, crazy, baby, I go crazy
You turn it on
Then you're gone
Yeah you drive me
Crazy, crazy, crazy, for you baby
What can I do, honey
I feel like the color blue...

You're packin' up your stuff and talkin' like it's tough and tryin' to tell me that it's time to go
But I know you ain't wearin' nothin' underneath that overcoat
And it's all a show

That kind of lovin'
Makes me wanna pull
Down the shade, yeah
That kind of lovin'
Yeah now I'm never, never, never, never gonna be the same

I'm losin' my mind, girl
Cause I'm goin' crazy

I need your love, honey
I need your love

Crazy, crazy, crazy, I go crazy
You turn it on
Then you're gone
Yeah you drive me
Crazy, crazy, crazy, for you baby
I'm losin' my mind, girl
ÔCause I'm goin' crazy
Crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby
You turn it on, then your gone
Yeah you drive me 

 -Crazy, Aerosmith-

You know the song Crazy by Aerosmith?

I love it.

Watch the music video.

I love it. Two girls out and free on the highway, without a care in the world, with no destination to go.

Sometimes I'd watch the video and just imagine for a second that I'm one of them.

Just leaving your old, real life behind, and just...

Letting go.

Not having to worry about where to live, what to wear, what to eat. Not having to worry about money, coz everything will always work out without having to work. Just living life as it comes.

Whenever I watch this video, it gives me a sense of hope and freedom, like if I wanted, I could, too. I know logically, this would never be on so many levels for so many reasons. But still.

I think partly why this video interests me is coz it kinda reminds me of the movie (some would call it a 90-minute-porn) my "What is Cinema?" lecturer let us watch two semesters ago. It's called Baise-moi (translated it literally means "Fuck Me"), in which the two female lead characters lead hedonistic lives, having casual sex with anyone they meet and robbing and killing for money.

Yeah, I know. Having casual sex with random strangers and robbing and killing for a living probably isn't a good idea.

That aside, the movie, like the music video 'Crazy', kinda gives me this idea of myself in that situation. Not having crazy sex and killing people, but being free from responsibilities, from life itself.

I guess that's just a dream that will never come true, because I know my life is worth so much more than just meaningless fun.

It's something to be free from everything else, it's another thing to realize how important these things to you and make something worthy out of it.
