Broken Heart

I opened the door. I saw a paper that said I don’t care, then we all clapped our hands in the air like now now now. You said that I was crazy you said that I was mad! No you were the only one no-oh. You said that I was mad that I was mad!

Quote – F. Scott Fitzgerald

At the End of the Rainbow

Don’t be scared, just look over there. There truly ain’t no nothing only air. There ain’t no treasure there ain’t no gold or diamonds, not even a hen with golden eggs. You crossed the rivers just to get to the end of the rainbow end of the rainbow. You thought for a while, and then you sang a song, you looked again and there ain’t no nothing only air. You cried your lungs out till you had no more tears and you threw away all your peers. Yeah there ain’t nothing at the end of the rainbow. You put so much effort just to get there (oooooh oooooh oooooh).

Yeah hear me now I am going to be super loud I don’t care of what you say I just want to do it all day. You hear me I hear you. You hear me I hear you. For so long I thought if I can do this I will never have to miss this… SHOW

Yeah at the end of the rainbow 1 2 1 2 at the end of the rainbow. You see nothing but air there truly ain’t no nothing there. Yeah at the end of the rainbow!
