It’s Been A Very Weird Five Days

(yes…there will be lyrics in this post too)

I’ve had a very weird five days or so. It comes down to the fact that I had a dream that I can’t remember other than waking up with “Still” by Lionel Richie going through my head. Now I am THE Lionel Richie fan in my family (there are jokes about it) and it’s not that unusual that a song of his will float in my head at different times or situations in my day or life. Normally I just bring them up on a kind of instant recall. What’s making this very weird is that it was “Still”. If it had been “Easy” I would known it was a happy dream. If it had been “All Night Long” or “Dancing On The Ceiling” it would have meant that I wanted to dance and celebrate something. But it was “Still”. And I have no idea what that means.

I have looked at this every way I can think of……I haven’t been in a relationship in 10 years and that relationship didn’t end badly or with unresolved issues, so the “I do love you….still” line doesn’t apply to me in that way. Yes….I’ve had “dreams that flew away”, but haven’t we all?

So all these questions are in my mind at just the time when I don’t need them to be. I have far too much work to do in the remaining weeks of the semester to keep feeling like there’s something out there that I’m supposed to “get” that I’m not getting.

So… are the words. If I figure out what they mean to me….I’ll post on that.

Morning’s just a moment away
And I’m without you once again
You laughed at me
You said you never needed me
I wonder if you need me now

So many dreams that flew away
So many words we didn’t say
Two people lost in a storm
Where did we go?
Where’d we go?
We lost what we both had found
You know we let each other down
But then most of all
I do love you

We played the games that people play
We made our mistakes along the way
Somehow I know deep in my heart
You needed me
‘Cause I needed you so desperately
We were too blind to see
But then most of all
I do love you
