Can You Tell - Ra Ra Riot

Remember those instances when someone smiled at you and you just melted? Unable to keep your composure as butterflies swarmed your stomach. When that person started speaking to you and you started to accidentally trip on your words, nervousness building up. When you get awkward around that person, because you are trying so hard to make that lasting impression. When all your thoughts are preoccupied with fantasies of being with your crush. Despite all the accidental bouts of awkwardness, you enter a complete state of euphoria. A intense array of emotions overtakes you, that powerful feeling of infatuation becomes your sole thought, and you experience that strong motivation to have those feeling reciprocated. That is called limerence, it’s the biological/chemical processes that happens when you fall in love, whether it’s at first sight or after decades of being together. Hormones are pumped through your body and dopamine levels skyrocket, causing that wonderful high stronger than any drug can achieve. In reality, love is the ultimate drug, and we are all addicted. Once you start feeling it, you never want to stop.

This wonderful song by Ra Ra Riot perfectly captures that feeling.

"When I look into your eyes I tend to lose my thoughts."
