You need to know how this is all going to go down.
How the story ends.
Because I… well, I don’t.
I don’t have a clue
And it scares me to no end.

You’re the “smart one”, you know
The one with the “bright future”
Whom everyone has “high hopes” for
So really, you’re the one who should know what you’re doing.

Because I’m not… her
That girl who has it all together
Who has four backup plans
And the money saved
And the temper under control
And… yeah, the list could go on.

I’m not asking for much.
Just a… future
That’s all.

You need to have a plan…
Because I certainly don’t.
