Wake Me Up

They say that seasons come and go.
Maybe now that’s true.
Maybe this is just a season,
There’s hope I can pass through.

They say that without rhyme or reason
Life can take a turn.
“Hold on to your fire, darling.”
There’s nothing left to burn.

I wanna sleep right now
And wake up when I’m fine.
I wanna sleep right now,
’cause this body isn’t mine.
If I forget how
To dance, I’ll loose my mind.
So, wake me up next season
When my limbs are more than vines.

They say that youth is fading.
I never saw it glow.
Went straight from glad and fire
To falling in the snow.

I wanna sleep right now
And wake up when I’m fine.
I wanna sleep right now,
’cause this body isn’t mine.
If I forget how
To dance, I’ll loose my mind.

Everything unwinds.
Everything unwinds.
I’m barely keeping time.

I wanna sleep right now
And wake up when I’m fine.
I wanna sleep right now,
’cause this body isn’t mine.
If I forget how
To dance, I’ll loose my mind.
If I don’t wake up next season,
Please, know that I tried.

Last night, I keened out this short tune while my pain kept me from sleeping. I’ve never been a strong songwriter, but I still keen my frustrations out when I’m stressed. Usually, full words don’t come to me. Last night, I guess I needed them.

I know the next season is coming, but, this season, the one where my limbs keep snapping, isn’t one I’m particularly enjoying.

I am grateful that I have this platform to be honest and open on.

I hope you’re in a good season, or on your way to a new one.
