LILAC isn't just an album. It’s a cultural reset, it’s the oxygen you breathe, it’s a lifestyle, a reason to breathe, an escape from this cruel world, it’s art, the first gift you open on christmas, a hug from a loved one, everything you’ve ever wanted pic.twitter.com/fubrtwTw0D

The sadness she felt when the 20's train left her on the platform. Her smile at the end when she realized she will embark on new adventures in her 30's train. 😭😭😭😭😭
