    Waiting For Superman

    I don't know why I never paid attention to the lyrics before today. But this time I really heard it. I suddenly remembered the time when I had to tell people that help wasn't coming, at least for a long time, and they needed to survive on their own. It wasn't necessarily the...

    A lot of songs make me cry. I guess I'm just an emotional person. LOL. I usually cry because they remind me of something, or someone.
