Missing Words

Don't you hate when you're trying to think of a word that you use all the time and suddenly it's not there? The last one I had to spend an hour trying to look up was "concession." And today for some reason I'm looking at the past-tense of teach (taught) and thinking I've spelled it wrong.

Speaking of the inability to properly convey a thought, as to yesterday's post (and I will be responding to those comments in short order), please do not interpret it as a suicidal cry for help or something. It's a difficult feeling to express without sounding that way, but I think Billy Joel did it pretty well once, and if I had thought of this yesterday I would've used it instead:

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To the river so deep
I must be looking for something
Something sacred I lost
But the river is wide
And it's too hard to cross

Even though I know the river is wide
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
I try to cross to the opposite side
So I can finally find what I've been looking for

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear
To a river so deep
I've been searching for something
Taken out of my soul
Something I'd never lose
Something somebody stole

I don't know why I go walking at night
But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life
Until I find what it is that I've been looking for

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt
To the river so deep
I know I'm searching for something
Something so undefined
That it can only be seen
By the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night

I'm not sure about a life after this
God knows I've never been a spiritual man
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river
That is running to the promise land

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
The River of Dreams by Billy Joel

I love that song! Used to sing it all the time. Damn now I need to turn on my stereo and play a few oldie tunes. Thanks PT for the reminder.

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"

    Usually happens at the big meetings...embarrassing at the least.
That's when I become totally incoherent lol. You'd think someone of my linguistic talents wouldn't turn into a gibbering idiot whenever he gets nervous lol.
