Gwen
(in the darkness:)
Someday we'll look back at this and laugh...
But I wish we could laugh at it now.
What was the mistake we made at the start
That caused the world to fall apart?
If I asked you now, who was to blame,
could you point a finger and give me a name?
Was it something he said? Or something she did?
Or the way your parents treated you when you were a kid?
Or is it all of us, right now,
Refusing to put it all behind us somehow?
Who won't let yesterday become a thing of the past
And give ourselves the chance to start all over at last.
...Before it's too late.

(silence)

Draco
(sighs:) It's too late.

Chris
Oh.

Gwen
(exiting:) Someday we'll look back at this and laugh.
But I wish we could laugh at it now.

Manny
(exiting:) Someday we'll look back at this and laugh.
But I wish we could laugh at it now.

Frannie
(exiting:) Someday we'll look back at this and laugh.
But I wish we could laugh at it now.

Draco
(exiting:) Someday we'll look back at this and laugh.
But I wish we could laugh at it now.
