You don't stop laughing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop laughing. and
Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there's footprints on the moon. and
Sometimes the heart does things for reasons that reason cannot understand.

They said that you were perfect
They said nothing would go wrong
They said you couldn’t hurt me
They said I was too strong
They said a lot of things
That I held on to so tight
They said a lot of things
That I found were just not right
They said that you were different
That you couldn’t break my heart
They said I could believe them
And that really wasn’t smart
So after I was broken
And after you were gone
I found that more than just you leaving
Could go so very wrong
So I finally broke the pattern
And started being me
I saw what I had been missing
The sense of being free
So now I listen to myself
Don’t let “them” lead my life
I found that on my own
I can make things right
