I have loved this song since I first heard it – the first notes had me hooked really. It’s been the tune for my alarm clock ever since. Why not wake up to a song you love and adore? It’s one of those songs that when I listen to it, I’m almost immediately hypnotized into reflection. I don’t really know why. Over the years it’s come to mean different things – for a while it reminded me of my fear of seeing my birth mom (I was born in LA). Later, it shifted to really just being related to all the people I miss. All the people in my life who I can only watch their lives play out in pictures from afar.

Now it’s less of a song about missing people and more about a song of connection. Some folks I don’t know if I’ll see or talk to again but I still want to watch from afar. I still will wonder what happened but I won’t give in to letting go even if it would be easier. For me, it’s still worth it.

Oof right in the feels.

Think I’m gonna stay, gonna stay in the gray
Think I’m gonna stay (gonna stay)
And the street lights say nevermind, nevermind
And the canyon lines say nevermind
The sunset says we see this all the time, nevermind
Never you mind

Wherever I go, Whatever I do
I wonder where I am in my relationship to you
Wherever you go, Wherever you are
I watch your life play out in pictures from afar

Wherever I go, Whatever I do
I wonder where I am in my relationship to you
Wherever you go, Wherever you are
I watch that pretty life play out in pictures from afar
