It's a truth universally acknowledged that the best songs come from being in love and then having your heart stomped on and shattered into a zillion pieces. It's sad but sometimes music brings people together and sometimes it tears them apart. What happens when you're someone's muse one day and the evil ex the next? Or when you love them and it turns out they love music, their dreams of music stardom or their favorite band more? Just remember: If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.
