“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

You know its funny

When you said those words

You knew who you were talkin bout

He knows he did these things

The truths that you decide to spout

Right into the room

A perfume that you spray about

But as you decided to list all his names

Alistair, the devil, the kid that's insane,

You knew that he was listening

What you don't know is that he was snickerin

He listened to the words and smiled

And he wasn't surprised by a mile

Cause after you came her

The one he said he loved

The one he said he cared about

As they talk about the guilt that he shoulda felt

So ill tell you one last time

Just like at the dance when we kissed in the light

The guilt i should feel is gone with the tide

So ill step off the throne broken crown in my hands

Ill be the bigger man I only have one demand

Pull yourselves together say my faults to my face

Dont hide behind the people like their your savin grace

I just wanna say, no i want you to know

Your kicking a dead horse

Give it up
