had I known we might be two kids without their jackets
my fear would come alive, I wouldn’t love her now
she might not make it home tonight
He’s dying. He’s sure of it. And yet in that moment he thinks back to the moment he met a strange girl on a vacant road. A girl who looked a lot like a woman he believed to be his true love. A girl who disarmed the monster within him with her humanity. She knew nothing about him and yet she found herself flirting with him and bantering about the kind of love she wants, the kind of love Damon knows he can give. And he makes this girl forget and two years later when he hears this girl say “If only I had met you first” he doesn’t tell her about this moment, instead he keeps it for himself. Because it’s the happiest memory he has. Because it’s the moment a simple human girl took his breathe away.
