    “Hello, it’s me.
    I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
    To go over 2014. They say that time’s supposed to heal ya, but I ain’t done much healing
    Hello, can you hear me?
    I’m in Cook County dreaming about what Illinois used to be
    When I was governor,
    I’ve forgotten how it felt before Rauner swept us all away.
    There’s such a difference between us
    And 926 days.
    Hello from the North Side.
    I must have called a thousand times
    To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
    But when I call you never seem to be home
    Hello from the outside
    At least I can say that I’ve tried
    To tell you I’m sorry for losing in 2014.
    And it matters. it clearly tears you apart over SB1.”
