I sift through my collection of melodies- songs that have sustained me, fired me up, bolstered me for a fight… songs to meditate and relax to. Songs to lose with. Songs for comfort’s sake.
And there’s some love songs, but they aren’t my songs, you know? The songs I keep going back to are surprisingly lonely songs. The most twosome sorts on that list are tunes that either apologize about leaving someone, or plaintive cries from someone whose been left. Or even the occasional song where two people agree to be lonely together.
I just don’t have the right song- a song that’s been waiting for someone to laugh with.
It’s not here.
So- is that something maybe…: Does your music library prescribe a certain destiny?
I’m not saying its a direct cause and effect, but I think a person does kinda hafta have the capability to envision a happy ending before they can actually have one. I mean, if there’s no accommodation in place for a happily ever after, it’s like inviting guests into a bare apartment.
It feels late in the game to be picking out curtains for my heart compartment. I am wary of such an expanse of velour- but-
I think I can find a good song.
