Do You Ever Go to Bed, Sleep For Hours, and Wake Up as If You’d Only Blinked?

It’s strange sometimes. How you can go to bed with a thought, a feeling, a sensation of sorts, and then you fall asleep for a few hours, 9 hours, or more… Yet as soon as you open your eyes it instantly is all there. The same thought, feeling, sensation, as if you only blinked while in the middle of a thought.  That’s how I went to bed last night. And it’s how I woke up today. The looping paragraph of the lyrics resounding in my mind:

“‘Cause with all the changes you’ve been through, it seems the stranger’s always you…”

Please enjoy “Wicked Little Town” (2001, the Tommy Gnosis version)

“Forgive me,
For I did not know.
‘Cause I was just a boy
And you were so much more
 
Than any god could ever plan,
More than a woman or a man.
And now I understand how much I took from you:
That, when everything starts breaking down,
You take the pieces off the ground
And show this wicked town
something beautiful and new.
 
You think that Luck
Has left you there.
But maybe there’s nothing
up in the sky but air.
 
And there’s no mystical design,
No cosmic lover preassigned.
There’s nothing you can find
that can not be found.
‘Cause with all the changes
you’ve been through
It seems the stranger’s always you.
Alone again in some new
Wicked little town.
 
So when you’ve got no other choice
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town.
Oh it’s a wicked, little town.
Goodbye, wicked little town.”
