  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyTHis song always seems to find me when I am down about failed relationships and trying to comprehend which its so hard to find someone normal when everyone around me is happy with someone! Its all about keep your chin up and going about your business and letting it happen when you least expect it! Yes the 4 letter word..LOVE!
