A normal day. I was making my way downtown faces past and I'm home bound. I never thought much about the people around so I just stared blankly ahead and walked through the crowd. All I could think about was Bill, how much I need him, and miss him. As I thought about him I wondered, if i could fall, into the sky, do you think time would pass me by? Bill must know I'd walk a thousand miles if I could just see him tonight. It's always times like these, just random moments when i think of him and wonder if he ever thinks of me. God, everythings just so wrong, I-I don't belong in his precious memories. I need him, "Bill I miss you" I whispered to the sky. I wondered about falling into the sky alot, I would walk a thousand miles if I could just see bill tonight. I don't want to let him know how I drown in his memory and I just don't I'm making my way downtown like always walking fast, thousands of faces pass and im home bound. I still miss him, I still need him. I wonder if I could fall into the sky, do you think time, would pass us by, 'cuz he knows I'd walk a thousand miles if i could just see Bill, Tonight. Then I saw him, "Bill" I screamed. "OMG, I'm sorry, I relized, I miss you, and I still need you" Bill replied, "Me to" I replied

I love how you put your real life situations in a song. She shows how much she loves and thinks about bill everyday of her life. She shows her love by saying ,” just random moments when i think of him and wonder if he ever thinks of me.”

My hero in disguise...and if I was taken would I be some lost treasure you would try to find? and if someday you had to go away from me... would I even cross your mind?...my hero say you live to say me, such clever, pretty words...

I love Vanessa Carlton. Try to do something with "Hands On Me" or "Come Undone", because I think that it would turn out pretty great, too.

Your story's theme was heartwarming and your choice of words was outstanding. However,I noticed that you did repeat the phrase "Bill, I miss you" or "Bill I need you"after a while the story lost my interest. Another thing I noticed was that you did use the lyrics from the song and did not quote them. For instance, "I was making my way downtown faces pass and im home bound". Even though you changed or cancelled out some words you should still quote it. Overall the concept and descriptive wording was great keep up the good work!!
