Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?

As soon as I read the question, my first thought was Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. It’s a pretty popular song from 1999 and I am pretty sure that if you don’t recognize it by the name if you listen to it you will know it. It’s been one of my favorite songs for a very long time and I think I like it so much because every time I hear it, I always picture a story. It’s definitely romantic in nature, but it also has feelings that make me feel like it could work as something YA too.
Here’s just a taste of the lyrics:

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken 
I just want you to know who I am
