There's a few entries here where you can tell he had been listening to a few songs over and over and he was quoting them in his Journal entries. One such song was "Whole Wide World" which he stole a phrase from and I used in this song. "Nothing Compares 2 U" was quoted in the entry just before. FWIW he also seemed to be a big fan of The Cure. That has nothing to do with this song. Just a random insight.
I'm a Thief
pardon my directness dear but i'm feeling rather anxious
can you pick me up and put me back on the shelf?
it's everything i want to say but can't
it's every conversation
i want to have but can't say out loud
i could build a life here
i could go the whole wide world
to steal another phrase
i'll steal every second i can get
