You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better. -Anne Lamott, from Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.


Love just runs around like a little bird
Taking, tweaking pieces at the herd
Little mocking bird is scared to sing
A bullet wound shot down in her old wing
Crying, chirping trying to make sound
Flittering all about the ground
She’s too terrified to even move away
But silly goose, it’s only Monday

Life goes on. The world still turns
The sun’s still there in the sky
Tomorrow is better than yesterday
Cause we don’t say goodbye
And even though the world,
May come crashing down inside
The world goes on, life always does

Luck just runs around like a sad old fool
Putting on disguise trying to look cool
But deep inside she’s too scared to show herself
She’s been pushed too many times back on her shelf

Life goes on. The world still turns
The sun’s up there in the sky
Tomorrow is better than yesterday
Cause we don’t say goodbye
And even though the world,
May come crashing down inside
The world goes on, life always does

And I may come back to the same place I’ve always been
So close to the answers that it feels like a sin
And I’m caught red handed in my beautiful escape

But life goes on, the world still turns
The sun’s up there in the sky
Tomorrow is better than yesterday
Cause we don’t say goodbye
And even though the world,
May come crashing down inside
And when nothing else does, life goes on
