Cracking.

I'm still pretty overwhelmingly sad. I woke up crying again. I actually spent most of yesterday just lying on the couch and crying. I went to Joseph's show last night and ran into Joel there and talked to him about it -- I basically told him the same thing that I told n0thingman, which is that maybe that's just what I need to do for right now.

I've had Suzanne Vega's "Cracking" stuck in my head for two days now. I'm not usually much for posting lyrics on my LJ, but what the hell ...

It's a one time thing
It just happens
A lot
Walk with me
And we will see
What we have got
My footsteps are ticking
Like water dripping from a tree
Walking a hairline
And stepping very carefully
My heart is broken
It's worn out at the knees
Hearing muffled
Seeing blind
Soon it will hit the DEEP FREEZE
And something is cracking
I don't know where
Ice on the sidewalk
Brittle branches
In the air
The sun
Is blinding
Dizzy golden, dancing green
Through the park in the afternoon
Wondering where the hell
I have been

see, what you don't realize is that the album that this is from was a major part of my high school experience. i walked around singing all these songs, and this one most of all. there's such a series of interlocking stories centering around the songs, Suzanne Vega herself, my friends then...weird that you should post the lyrics. that it should be so much with you.

well, i'm sorry things are so rough right now. Chuckie (see icon) and i send a hug. Chuckie got me through everything in my life.

Oh, so many comments.

1. If I had to pick a song from that album for me, it would be "Marlene on the Wall." It's been stuck in my head all day.

2. I, too, have very distinct memories of that album. I remember first hearing it, and being blown away. Thinking about that, it's made me ponder other albums through the years that have had that effect on me -- the sense of "wow -- I've never heard anything like this before." I was pondering that on my drive to work. I'm pondering it even more now, having read your latest post.

3. I have Monkeybaby. I took a picture of her and will turn her into an icon ASAP.
