    i’m looking for that song with lyrics something like “ain’t it hard to love the one you killed” but so far haven’t been able to find it.
    movie credits too fast and i can’t remember everything i saw.

      What is the name of the song at the beginning of the credits at the end of the movie? It’s not listed anywhere on the internet, and I can’t find it with music recognizing apps. It’s at the very beginning of the typewriter themed credits at the end of the movie.
