Love is like jazz You make it up as you go along and you act as if you
really know the song but you don't and you never will so you flaunt your
mistakes and you make them until they were you Love is like jazz the same
song a million times in different ways "Strange Fruit" with and without
wind chimes It's divine It's asinine It's depressing and it's almost
entirely window dressing but it'll do
