of killing yourself? We already gave

cared about was work and politics!
So, don’t ever look at me that way…

[A Little Too Much by Shawn Mendes]

And now we're out here in this room
I get a little bit nervous around you
Get a little bit stressed out when I
think about you
Get a little excited
Baby, when I think about you, yeah
Talk a little too much around you (I
talk a little too much, yeah)
Get a little self-conscious (I get a little

Get a little excited (I get a little
excited)
Baby, when I think about you
Yeah, when I think about you, babe

write
You are the muse in the back of my
mind, oh
*Kenji gets his guitar and plays*
*Kenji pauses*
*Kenji continues*
*Kenji stops*
Kenji: After reading Clara’s lyrics,
the music notes that disappeared
from my world are slowly coming
back.
Kenji:
[Why by Shawn Mendes]
Don't want to ask about it 'cause
you might brush it off
I'm afraid you think that it means
nothing at all
I don't know why I won't admit that
you're all I want
I pretend that I'm not ready
Why do we put each other through
hell?
Why can't we just get over
ourselves?
And you say hi like you just met me
Why do we put each other through
hell?
Why can't we just get over
ourselves?
Why can't we just get over
ourselves?

Hayley*

Hayley: I did. I’ve known Kenji since
we were young, but since he didn’t
want to say anything about it, I
didn’t either.
Clara: I heard him sing…
*Clara, still looking down, replies*
Hayley: The reason why Kenji
became this way is because of two
women…

[Save Myself by Ed Sheeran]
Life can get you down so I just numb
the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out-ofdate prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they
just left me on the shelf
No farewell
So before I save someone else, I’ve
got to save myself
And before I love someone else, I’ve
got to love myself.
