"Story Of My Life" as written by Beth Nicole Hopkins and Doug Mccarvell....
Our love was volatile and weird.
All I thought as I hopped the Greyhound was,
"Get me the fuck outta here."

I ran
I ran away from you.
Packed my tears and all my fears.
I had nothing better to do.

Mommy,
Mommy, I know you know the truth.
I'm sorry that you're heartbroken.
Now, all I am is missing you.
And, when I left
I dropped a trail of candy hearts,
Hoping you would wait for me...
I just want, to come home tonight.
This is the story of my life.

One week,
Shouldn't have even been one day.
I am calling from a payphone,
Twenty three hundred miles away.
Bad things I can not even say.
If not for the kindness of strangers,
I would not be alive today.

Mommy,
Mommy, I know you know the truth.
I'm sorry that you're heartbroken.
Now, all I am is missing you.
And, when I left
I dropped a trail of candy hearts,
Hoping you would search for me,
I just want, to come home tonight.
This is the story of my life.

    General Commentthe first line is :
    our love was volatile and weird
    and it's mommy, mommy i know you know the truth, sorry that you're heartbroken, now all I am is missing you

    also the spoken part goes
    "i was yelling, drive drive drive, please? this asshole wants to turn us out. I was yelling, help us man, he's a stranger. so he told us to put our seat belts on. Mr. davies the cab driver, he pulled outta there. he saved out lives mom, he's like a guardian angel."

    *I could be wrong abut the last part but that's what I hear*

    General CommentThis song kinda signifies her life while she was on drugs, and all messed up, and the line at the end is her stating that she has changed, and that is no longer the story of her life.
