"you can try to escape the story of your life, but you can’t. it happened. the baby died. the dog died. the heart broke. i knew you when you were young. i know your heart broke, too. i will know you when we are both old, and maybe wise. i hope wise.

i know you now: your story. mine isn’t the one i would have chosen in the beginning, but i’ll take it. it is my story. it’s only mine. and it’s not over."

I TRIED TO DRINK IT AWAY, I TRIED TO PUT ONE IN THE AIR
I TRIED TO DANCE IT AWAY, I TRIED TO CHANGE IT WITH MY HAIR.
I RAN MY CREDIT CARD BILL UP, THOUGHT A NEW DRESS MAKE IT BETTER
I TRIED TO WORK IT AWAY, BUT THAT JUST MADE ME EVEN SADDER.
I TRIED TO KEEP MYSELF BUSY, I RAN AROUND CIRCLES
THINK I MADE MYSELF DIZZY,
I SLEPT IT AWAY, I SEXED IT AWAY
I READ IT AWAY AWAY, AWAY, AWAY, AWAY, AWAY, AWAY…
