The All of Sum Parts (67 of 90)

Living my life in a slow hell / Different girl every night at the hotel / I ain’t seen the sun shine in three damn days The world is re-shaping itself around me these days and I have realized – or re-realized – that I’m on the outside looking in. A face pressed against the […]
