Fly By Night

A followup to my previously rambling post.

I was listening to the radio when Fly By Night by Rush came on... now I've loved Rush for a minute as a kid that was the type of music my mom was listening to and so it's definitely 'comfort music' for me now.  Music has always had a calming affect on my world.  It's funny how your brain picks out lyrics that match your state of mind.  Good or bad most people naturally gravitate toward the 'mood music' that represents them at a particular place/time.  And, as we all know, music can transport us.  When I hear the Eagles greatest hits I am instantly transported back to a road trip I had years ago!

As usual, I digress.....

The point to today's post was that when I heard this song I had to look up the lyrics because they seemed to exactly capture my pensive chaotic thoughts. 

"Fly By Night"

Why try? I know why
The feeling inside me says it's time I was gone
Clear head, new life ahead
It's time I was king now -- not just one more pawn

Fly by night, away from here
Change my life again
Fly by night, goodbye my dear
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend

Moon rise, thoughtful eyes
Staring back at me from the window beside
No fright or hindsight
Leaving behind that empty feeling inside


Start a new chapter
Find what I'm after
It's changing every day
The change of a season
Is enough of a reason
To want to get away
Quiet and pensive
My thoughts apprehensive
The hours drift away
Leaving my homeland
Playing a lone hand
My life begins today


I still don't know if I'm staying or going but I know change is coming.  The one thing I know is that when something isn't working you need to find what's broken and try to fix it.  You might not be able to but sitting in place spinning your wheels doesn't get you anywhere.
