Everything's beautiful. So goddamned beautiful. I don't much worry about the hurt. XOXO.


It's hard to even imagine the choices that love makes
The work is almost always harder than the impulse to hate
The framework's turned inside-out
My desperate pleas ignored
We go from formula to cola, then on to draft beer
The memories tucked in between keep us strong
Check the water and speculate to see if these dreams float
The framework's turned inside-out, a compromise of sleep
And somewhere in the back of mind there's a voice--a voice that says "I'm enough"
And I just want to be enough
Everything's beautiful
So goddamned beautiful
I don't much worry about the hate
