Don't read this, 'cause I've got the blues, it might be contagious

Yeah, I've got the lonely old blues tonight. Friday night and you're all at some wild swingers' party. Don't lie about it. I know you are. And you'll be blogging about it in a couple of days. Never should've put those Stevie Ray discs in the stereo. Ain't no blues lonelier than being lonely when you aren't alone. You know what I'm talking about? Midnight on a Friday night, waiting for the last load of laundry. Wishing there was somebody to kiss who'd kiss back. There ain't no sex in the desert. Just a mirage. You think that's an oasis? Ever try to get ahold of mercury? Mortality hides around the corner of midnight and stares at you while you watch the night pass. Sex is the only thing that makes it blink.

OK. Enough of this shit. You're not the one who has it hard. Get the last load of laundry. Take Stevie Ray off, replace with Bach, Handel, Mozart, Grieg. Save Led Zep for tomorrow, 'cause you know what - tomorrow the sun's gonna shine, 65 degrees. And someday somebody will say yes and the light will shine in her eyes. Even after midnight.

I told you not to read this.

Thanks, but unfortunately I do have to sleep alone right now - my wife just had major surgery 2 weeks ago. Besides, being married is no guarantee you won't be lonely. I hope you find someone to hold onto soon.

Nice music choices. You played those blues cuz you wanted the music to reflect your mood. When it had served its purpose you switched to something more soothing.

And yes, that 'someday somebody' does exist and you will see that light eventually. I bet this blog will help you find her too.

Thanks, Keith. It did reflect my mood, but it sure didn't cure it. Just accentuated it. My profile's been getting some views since I started blogging, but they're from the other side of the continent or another continent across the ocean. What about you? Where are the neighbors?
