“Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'. I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.”
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

The little girl in pictures, you once knew
Believed in fairy tales and dreams coming true
She thought her first kiss would be in the rain
What a shame
She turned out this way

The little girl in pigtails ran away
Dreaming of a day she’d escape this scary place
Her mother told her she’d be a star
She believed
She’d make it far

The little girl in pictures is growing up
Shooting to the sky and falling in love
Her first kiss was stolen in a rush
And her dreams,
She’s given up

I'm sorry I disappointed you again
I’m sorry it didn’t turn out the way we planned
I promise I’ll find the right way
And I’ll make you proud someday
