And yet letting a grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children

We all need people and this moon will make you long for the one that got away. It is never too late. Step past your fears.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Mark, a yen, a buck or a pound
That clinking, clanking, clunking sound
Is all that makes the world go ’round
It makes the world go ’round!
