(Wake up, new file, save as exile. Merge left, yield right, drive on all night.) It’s in the circuitry. Yeah, I know that guy, you know. We were a thing for a while once, about a million years ago, before the big hit movie. What was the name of it again? Yeah, yeah, that’s the one – the one where the train and the girl and the boy and the sea and the sky collide. And the girlfriend walks away from the smoking wreck as the credits roll. That’s the part he got from me. That’s the part he wrote for me. (Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby I love you, love you, love you. Oh Baby, Baby, Honey, I’m so sorry, sorry Baby.) I saw him at a party. He had a plate with three different kinds of meat and a thing with three of the women there, so we didn’t get to talk much. I told him I’m back in school now ‘cause I still hadn’t figured it out yet. He said, that’s great!  No. I envy you. I don’t read half what I’d like to. Then across a great divide I got up and walked away. That’s the part I wrote for me. That’s the part I wrote for me. (Merge left, yield right, all night, all right.)
