I almost forgot how much I love this song. In fact, I actually wanted to use some of the lyrics for my senior quote:
…and your love will be warm nights with pockets of moonlight
spotlighting you as you drift, the actor in this play.
And you walk across the stage, take a bow, hear the applause,
and as the curtain falls, just know you did it all:
the best that you knew how, and you can hear them cheering now.
So let a smile and show your teeth, cause you know you lived it well.
But alas, the world did not revolve around me when I was 18, and this little diddy was simply too long. So I settled for this nugget from Ani DiFranco:
I do it for the joy it brings
because I’m a joyful girl
because the world owes me nothing
and we owe each other the world.
But guess what—I didn’t even listen to Ani DiFranco. I’M A POSER, Y’ALL!
