The life they didn’t see coming now affects all four protagonists, who lament their situation in this song.  Nick sings, “I am a young working man” . . . Emily, “Got my degree in M R S” . . . Eddie, “Don’t wanna die in some forsaken land”  . . . Sara, “How in the world did I get into this.” What about what I had planned, what I’d thought I could control?  Now     . . .  “What does the future hold for me?” This song lays bare the struggles of each character to define him- or herself, reestablish his or her dreams and begin to pursue them.
