„You say it's all in my head
And the things I think just don't make sense
So where you been then? Don't go all coy
Don't turn it round on me like it's my fault
See I can see that look in your eyes
The one that shoots me each and every time.
You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her.“
— Adele (singer) British singer-songwriter 1988

Have it better than the best, so we can pull on through.
Whatever tears at us… whatever holds us down,
And if nothing can be done, well make the best of whats around.“
