Put on your old mixtape and

dance to it.

The words may not have the same meaning but

they'll still mean something and

that's all that matters 



Put on your best dress and 

some red lipstick -

You may not feel okay inside but

You'll still catch the eyes of everyone around you and

that's all that matters



Smile and laugh and

Spin around the dance floor like the hurricane you are.

Get drunk on cheap wine and the idea of love and 

try to forget why you went out in the first place because

that's all that matters



Take off your high heels -

Feel the cold tile beneath your feet and listen to the laughter of everyone around you.

The sound may not mean anything but

You hear it and

That's all that matters
