song of the day | what sandra thinks

I know I’ve posted this song before, but I heard it today and it kind of got to me in a big way. So… maybe listen to it again. I think it’s worth it.

swirly
Wake Me Up | Avicii

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
I hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans
I wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

[partial lyrics]

Written by Melinda Marie Marantz, Aileen Quinn, Mike Einziger, Avicii & Aloe Blacc

I am not currently winning the game… or earning any prizes. I think I lost the instructions… a long time ago.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    • Hey. You must have missed my last post before this one. I kind of thought you wrote me off or something. No, not really. I’m not even sure how much of an update that post was… can’t remember exactly what I wrote and I’m too lazy to go back and read it.

      I’m okay, I guess. Or, well, maybe that’s a lie. Hell, I don’t know how I am! A mess, I guess… as if that isn’t obvious. I am having a hard time. Lately, I wonder “what’s the point?” and I have no answer.

      Well… that was bleak. Sorry. You’re probably glad now that I haven’t been around!

      Now I feel like I should delete this comment and start over…!

      • Blow you off? You know better than that. And, I still say this place is better with you around. I’ll go check the previous post now. I actually am having one of those weeks…or three…myself. Whatever could go wrong, has. I’m in a funk, man. So, now that I’ve cheered you up….. 😏😏

        • Yeah… I know. But I’m so annoying. Like, if I wasn’t me, I wouldn’t want to be around me. Hell, I *am* me and I don’t want to be around me. So I am always stunned that anyone does. But I’m lonely and I’m sad. Was just talking about this with my NP today. It’s not great… I feel like I’ve kind of given up on happiness. I’m too old… I’ve run out of time… and I guess I’m tired of fighting. I often feel like it’s better if I’m not around because I’m kind of unpleasant. You know? I’m sorry shit has been going wrong for you. Where the hell are the cliches that make me want to punch you?? 😄

    I love this song. I found out about what happened to Avicii the other day and it was kind of heartbreaking. The important thing isn’t winning the game–it’s having pieces on the board.
