I can feel

Your presence echoing

throughout the fields

Where life made

sense to me

If you take away that

missing part of me

You'll still find the

entrance to my soul

I can see you now

more than ever

I still feel you up there

smiling down on me

I can see you

now more than ever

I still feel you up there

smiling down on me


At times I feel like

running full speed ahead

Towards our

greatest memories

To watch them

chase me home

Where I feel safe alone

Another step outside

my comfort zone


I can see you now

more than ever

I still feel you up

there smiling down on me

I can see you now

more than ever

I still feel you up

there smiling down on me

Smiling down on me

You're smiling down on me

I can see you now

more than ever

I still feel you up there,

you're smiling down on me


Alright, come on!

Smiling down on me


You're smiling down on me


Dear Mom,

Did you ever wonder about

the moment you became you?

I've been thinking

about that lately.

I mean, the moment that

decides how we forever

look at the world.

I remember that

moment perfectly.

Mom, what are those?

For me, it was with you.

They're picture frames.

See in that one,

a little boy's getting

a bedtime story

from his grandpa.

Up there, they're putting

up the Christmas tree.

Boxes of light.

Windows into life.

Every frame begs

me for a story.


You okay over there?

I don't know.

I mean, I just don't,

I feel like I'm flying blind.

I don't know if the colors

I'm using are right.

I don't know.

Well, if you're really nice

you could ask for help.


Sure, yeah.

I do this for a living.

I mean, this.

Do you have one of those

kits that they use on you?

Of course. I never

leave home without it.

I just got a new

one yesterday.

Kind of magical.

It's basically the secret

to my entire career

is this little box.

Almost anyone can use it,

but no one knows about it.

There's this really

special red color.

Comes in a little

tiny box of eight.

I could just

paint that on you.

Look at that. See you

wouldn't have to do that.

It would stay all

day that crayon.

Thank you.

Thank you for that

invaluable help.

[phone vibrating]

They just

delivered our tree.

Ha, really?

I hadn't noticed.

Have you got your one yet?

Now why would a girl who

lives alone need a tree?

You could put my

present under it.


But seriously though, like,

I don't know, like, on video,

is like, should I

be wearing more blush.

Like, should it be more colorful

or less? Is this gonna...

Look, I wouldn't

worry about it.

It's face time.

I mean, you're basically just

going to be a frozen image.

Like an emoji.

Smile emoji, sad emoji,

raise the roof emoji.

Your bras are going

to raise the roof.

Is there a bra emoji?

Why didn't they send a

real crew though, you know?

Like they do for me?

Okay, I've got an idea.

You can do it, right?

-I mean you love my bras.

-I do.

You just talk about

how much you love them.

Girls around the country will

want you to love their bras.

It'll work really well.

Problem is the only thing

I can describe is

how to take them off.

-Mm, are you ready?

-No! Stop it. Stop it.

Oh, not that ready.

Okay, do I look okay?

Is it... seriously.

Just... hold on.

Stop it, stop it,

stop it, stop it!

-No, no, no.

-You look fine.

Okay, okay.
