If there was ever a song that captured my entire twenties, this would be that song, hands down. From the insane mother to hating work, to the tease of the few brilliant moments of joy in the murky moods that permeate my days… It’s all here.
On days like today, when everything feels wrong, when kind words feel utterly empty, when I’m screaming for some kind of proof of positivity and finding actions speaking to the contrary on every front, my own included, I come back to this song. Always.
