You’re so vain,

Carly Simon

Well no, he loved you for him.

“I’m not sure I can love anyone who doesn’t love me for me.”


“Well, if you don’t love me the way I am, why should I love you, with your pink hair?”

Surrounded: A state of siege restricting discretionary movement.


…floating belly-up.
