" - what would be so bad about stopping, what about other people?

he said " fuck it, i'll do it my way. and the people that love me will understand why I'm doing it because they love me."


you've been acting awful tough lately, smoking a lot of cigarettes lately
but inside, you're just a little baby
it's okay to say you've got a weak spot, you don't always have to be on top
better to be hated than loved for what you're not
you're vulnerable, you are not a robot
you're loveable, so loveable. but you're just troubled
Never committing to anything
Don't be so pathetic, just open up and sing
I'm vulnerable
Can you teach me how to feel real?



the boy, tom hanson of margate, new jersey, grew up believing that he'd never truly be happy.
this belief stemmed from early exposure to sad british pop music and a total misreading of the movie 'the graduate'.

the girl, summer finn of chennicok, michigan, did not share this belief. since the disintegration of her parents' marriage, she'd only loved two things: the first was her long, dark hair. the second was how easily she could cut it off and feel: nothing.

Tom meets Summer on January eighth.
