That’s what I do to myself. It’s all about being comfortable,” she sings, as she moves her arms, her neck, her torso, and her hands.

“That’s how I make it happen,” she continues. “You don’t know it yet, but all you do is give it to yourself.”

When she finishes singing, the song is over and the sound of her own voice is more powerful than anything she’s experienced in her life, yet she can’t stop her heart from racing.

Elsa smiles. “This may finally be your chance to stop trying so hard and start being happy,” she says. “You’ve been there for me, even though you didn’t know I was feeling this bad.”

“And I want my life back, too,” a girl whispers from near the back as some of the others laugh quietly.

“All the pain you’ve caused me,” she says, “all caused us to get closer when we were supposed to be farther away.”
