I think of you then
With your sensitive moments
And your big city friends
You were out like a light
You were looking around
With your faith in a notion
And your head in the ground

Just look at you now
Just look at you now
‘Cause you’ll figure it out
And you’ll stand in the rain
And you’ll know in that moment
That you’re never the same

And if you could arise
Just like any other
If you could have any life
Would you trade it to know
Even just for the day
That the future is certain?
It’s a terrible way

Just look at you now
‘Cause you’ll figure it out
And you’ll stand in the rain
And you’ll know in that moment
That you’re never the same

Notes
This week I’m continuing with this weird sythed-out 80’s vibe that I’ve been tinkering with lately. This time I brought in the big-tom-drum-fills… uh oh! Once again, this tune came out of a moment related to the tragedy in Boston, but this time it was a much quieter and more personal moment. The night of the big manhunt, after all was said and done, I went out for a run to clear my head. While I was out, these huge rain clouds swept in and released the pent up frustrations of that entire week down upon me. It was truly cathartic, and I started thinking of the ways that I looked at the world before, and the ways that I now look at the world in light of everything that has happened. My friends in big cities came to mind, and I realized that I have never truly worried about their safety. The harsh realization of my past-naiveté came up against my stubborn will to stay the same, and I didn’t really like it. I took heart, however, in the notion that we never stay the same, and that all the times that I’ve had to change in the past didn’t hurt so much that I couldn’t keep on enjoying life. Even with calamity and uncertainty abound, this is the life we have.

Here’s hoping your Monday doesn’t totally suck.
~M.E.
