In this rare, live performance by Regina Spektor, she sings her hauntingly simplistic and emotionally driven song, “You”. This live gem is truly a Spektor treasure that is satisfyingly buried beneath hours of other notable tracks. If you listen through the song, there is also a humorous transition as Spektor prepares to play one of her (at the time) new releases, “Blue Lips”. Please enjoy and reblog. Thank you.

Favorite lyrics: Never give up loving unless you have to. Never leave your lover unless you must. Cause it will haunt your empty heart forever, til your body turns to dust.
To live means to suffer, because the human nature is not perfect and neither is the world we live in.
2. The origin of suffering is attachment:
The origin of suffering is attachment to transient things and the ignorance thereof.
3. The cessation of suffering is attainable:
The cessation of suffering can be attained through nirodha. Nirodha means the unmaking of sensual craving and conceptual attachment.
4. The path to the cessation of suffering:
There is a path to the end of suffering - a gradual path of self-improvement, which is described more detailed in the Eightfold Path. It is the middle way between the two extremes of excessive self-indulgence (hedonism) and excessive self-mortification (asceticism); and it leads to the end of the cycle of rebirth.
Hal: Well, let’s say that since you were little, you always dreamed of getting a lion. And you wait, and you wait, and you wait, and you wait but the lion doesn’t come. And along comes a giraffe. You can be alone, or you can be with the giraffe. Oliver: I’d wait for the lion. Hal: That’s why I worry about you.
