Bassoons, trombones, and French horn sections
Bass clarinets and string art collections.
Owls and guitars when they do not match
Gilda, Kristen, Cheri, Tina, Amy and Rachel Dratch.

All these things, they're just disappointing,
All these things, they're just disappointing compared to you.
There's nothing more beautiful than your smile as it conquers your face.
There's nothing more comforting than to know, know you exist in this time, in this place.

John Grant - Disappointing
