Get me out of this place, before I cause more damage, a small price to pay for building houses out of matchsticks; and when things get too hot, you’ve got me to blame for, every fire that breaks out in every lover’s name, so… Don’t forget, we’ve got unfinished business, stories yet to unfold, tales that must be retold, and I regret not knowing when to put an...
