May Erlewine covers Taylor Swift.

From the liner notes:

I think in order to make room for the new dreams ahead I need to grieve the dreams that didn’t happen

It would’ve been sweet

@dollyparton says, “if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

In this moment I want to let the rain wash over me
so that I can really feel it
because it was serious
because it flooded the world because it took things that we’ll never get back
I want to feel that
so that when I open myself up to the brilliant colors ahead,
I can see them with clear eyes and I can feel flooded with the light
and full of gratitude

Here’s to brighter days, dear ones
They are coming
