    Things are just the same as they always were, only you’re the same as you were, too, so I guess things will never be the same again. Goodnight.

    She lived unknown, and few could know
    When Lucy ceased to be;

    The difference to me!

    Into a Lover’s head!

    ‘If Lucy should be dead!’
