He's in love with tragedy, in love with tragedy.
She was a wreck but he loved her.
She was a wreck but so was he.
And the last time he saw Dorie he didn't know what to say
But "thank you because you loved me and so love me cause I didn't want to stay."
I didn't want to stay.

Live, live, live live because you love love love.
And love will make you give give give.
And give in when you break,
But you just want to fix yourself.
Just to break again.

    General CommentI stopped listening to Copeland for awhile, but I had a chance to listen to a few tracks off there new CD-and I'm glad to see that Aaron is still able to write emotionally captivating pieces...I look forward to seeing him live on Saturday!

    General CommentThis song is inspired from Aaron's favorite Woody Allen movie, Stardust Memories. I haven't seen the movie, but I'm guessing it has direct references to the plot.
