  • When I was going through my heartbreak - the realization that I was dying a slow death and nobody but me knew it - I found a song.

    Silent All These Years
    by Tori Amos

    Excuse me but can I be you for a while
    My dog won't bite if you sit real still
    I got the anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
    Yeah I can hear that
    Been saved again by the garbage truck
    I got something to say you know
    But nothing comes
    Yes I know what you think of me
    You never shut-up
    Yeah I can hear that

    Don't go back. Never go back.
