Learning 2 fly☆☆☆☆ Jay¿¿¿¿¿ what goes up must come down ♡♡♡♡♡

Bridog, I think that's not an unreasonable interpretati o n , but it's kind of the overwhelming l y pessimistic point of view. I think it's just more about someone awakening to their possibilitie s . Kicking a heroin habit can do that too.

I think it's one of the great songs of my lifetime, whatever it's about.

You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this you will be injured (but won't die) in two days. Now that you started reading this don't stop. Post this on five other songs in the next 143 minutes when your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
