The songs in this movie made me think that I'll do the whole soundtrack of the movie. Yup. Arnold, Miss Songfic, is doing the unthinkable: she's gonna do a chapter story of songfictions. Wow, what and undertaking! This chapter is all in Daphne's POV.

I own nothing.

Skip down Mistic street
Have a smile, it's on me
Cross-town traffic days
And Jimi is singing (Jimi is singing)

Ahhh, New York. The place I'd lived my entire life. All the better that I had my mom.


Wonder Bread Factory, surplus stores and Maybelline
Hold my hand, I hold my own

But someone is missing. Someone who I had always hoped would come, to be here. But he never did show. So I'm happy with what I have, which is a lot.

Gotta get me out of the junkyard heap
Kicking back in marigold summertime dream
It's a good, good life, we got the good life

One of these days, I'd have to get out of here, if only for a while. I need to see the world. Maybe even find my dad.


Falling in love under the raspberry sun
Turn up the stereo, baby have some fun
It's a good, good life, we got the good life


For now, though, I'm happy to be here just with Libby. I have my girlfriends, and we have fun. Plus, there are a ton of cute guys to date.


Fortune jackpot blues
What's an empty pocket do?

A few times we've been a little short on cash, and I cut spending, but we've gotten out of it, and now we're completely normal, with enough money.


Climb the nearest dream and start demanding
Bean bags, bobby pins, glitter gel, I'm home again
Where's my shiny golden key?


Going out shopping is one of my favorite things to do. But I'm always glad to come home to my mom, who'll order takeout, or, on a rare occasion, make the two of us something.


Gotta get me out of the junkyard heap
Kicking back in marigold summertime dream
It's a good, good life, we got the good life

I love my life.


Falling in love under the raspberry sun
Turn up the stereo, baby have some fun
It's a good, good life, we got the good life

Even when I work at one of my mom's wedding gigs, I manage to find something that amuses me.

Roll down the window (the rearview window gleams)
See you waving (waving back at me)
Find change under (the sofa cushion seat)


But whenever I see the bride dancing with her father, I break.


As long as you are here, with me


Cuz he's not here, and probably won't be for my wedding, and I won't get to do that.


Gotta get me out of the junkyard heap
Kicking back in marigold summertime dream
It's a good, good life, we got the good life

Yeah, I need to go find him.


Falling in love under the raspberry sun
Turn up the stereo, baby have some fun
It's a good, good life, we got the good life


Then England's the place to be, not here. I'll go there, and find my dad.

Gotta get me out of the junkyard heap
Kicking back in marigold summertime dream
It's a good, good life, we got the good life
Falling in love under the raspberry sun
Turn up the stereo, baby have some fun
It's a good, good life, we got the good, we got the good life


Maybe meet a guy I actually stick with. Maybe stick with my dad.

Falling in love under the raspberry sun
Turn up the stereo, baby, have some fun

I can have just as much fin in London, right?

Gotta get me out of the junkyard heap
Kicking back in marigold summertime dream
We got the good, good life

My life is still great, I just have to add a few tweaks.
