I'm at home, and I'm

I’m at home, and I’m working on a site and it’s two in the morning and I lean over and put a random CD on, and a song comes on and suddenly I’m fifteen, writing in my journal, learning to play the song in question on the piano, wondering when I’d get to play it to someone and mean it. Thirteen years later and I still feel like I’m waiting for that opportunity – that it will apply to me eventually, at some random point in the future. It’s a cheesy song – there’s no denying it – but teenage songs stay with you. And I can still play it on the piano – I’ve tried to keep it in practice, just in case… (Something So Right)

You’ve got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You’ve got the look of lovelight in your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
‘Til you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down

When something goes wrong
I’m the first to admit it
I’m the first to admit it
And the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it’s likely to lose me
It’s apt to confuse me
It’s such an unusual sight
Oh, I can’t, I can’t get used to something so right
Something so right

They’ve got a wall in China
It’s a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners they made it strong
And I’ve got a wall around me
That you can’t even see
It took a little time
To get next to me
