Grandfather clock stands in the hall...

Yume: There is a door, and if it is opened all the future will be revealed. Up the hall, another door is opened, and if it is closed the past will be forgotten. An image, newly burned, beats ever in my head. To close the door to the past would erase it, and to open the door to the future would allow me to ignore it because I'd know the end result.

I'll be that girl - and you would be right over. If I were a field, you would be in clover. If I were the sun, you would be in the shadow. And if I had a gun, there'd be no tomorrow.
