    Lyrics:
    Let me tell you a story
    About a boy and a girl
    It’s kinda short kinda boring
    But the end is a whirl
    They were just sixteen
    When the people were mean
    So they didn’t love themselves
    And now they’re gone
    Headstones on a lawn
    And when I was younger
    I knew a boy and a boy
    Best friends with each other
    But always wished they were more
    ‘Cause they loved one another
    But never discovered ‘cause they were too afraid
    Of what they’d say
    Moved to different states
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    But I think that it could work for you and me
    Just wait and see
    It’s not the end of the story
    Now it's on to the sequel
    About me and my friend
    Both our parents were evil
    So we both made a bet
    If we worked and we saved
    We could both run away
    And we’d have a better life
    And I was right
    I wonder if she’s all right
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    But I think that it could work for you and me
    Just wait and see
    It’s not the end of the story
    And the movie’s always running in my head
    All the people, all the lovers, all my friends
    And I hope that they all get their happy end
    In the end
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
    Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
    But I think that it could work for you and me
    Just wait and see
    It’s not the end of the story

    Close your eyes.
    Imagine sitting on a rooftop as this song plays, rain gently falling on your face. Take a deep breath in, and out again. The air smells fresh and clean and hopeful, in a way that it hasn't in a long, long time. The clouds slowly shift over the mountains in front of you, and to your left, waves crash against the shore of a churning silver sea. The bridge begins to play,
    And the movie's always runnin' in my head
    All the people, all the lovers, all my friends
    And i hope that they all get their happy end
    In the end...
    A sort of peacefulness settles over you, and you realise,
    Its not okay now. It might not be for a long while. But eventually, it will. Just hold on. Hold on. It's not the end of the story...

    This song hits hard. In middle school I fell in love with someone. A girl. It was hard to come to terms with the fact that I liked girls. But I still loved her, and she told me she felt the same. We swapped love notes between classes, and it was great while it lasted. Her mom was in the military and they constantly moved, and her mom was stationed across the country. So they moved across the country. She was my first actual crush, and last one so far (im a sophomore in hs). I miss her, and i’m wondering if she’s ok. (if you see this Aly, hi :))

    One of my biggest fears is being able to relate to the line "I wonder if she's alright." I'm scared to lose my best friend. I haven't felt that kind of hurt before, and I don't want to.
