elephant in the room

it's because I had a trumpet.

it's because of miss parson's 'let the die be cast' lesson

it's because it would give me something to do in the summer

it's because I didn't want to lose some pride.

it's because I wanted the credit. for school. for college.

it's because they would be gone on my sixteenth birthday

it's because of all my friends there.

it's because I didn't want to be a quitter.

but I didn't join marching band because of evan.
