I want these words to make things right, but isn’t it the wrongs that make the words come to life? I mean, who does he think he is? Cause if that’s the worst you got, better put your fingers back to the key. Cause it’s one night and one more time, but thanks for the memories…even though they weren’t so great. He tastes like…The Weekly Static!

Lin and Danielle Woodrow also will executive produce via Lin’s Perfect Storm Entertainment.
