Lyrical Therapy IV

The Bug

Well it’s a strange old game – you learn it slow
One step forward and it’s back to go
You’re standing on the throttle
You’re standing on the brakes
In the groove ’til you make a mistake

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all

You gotta know happy – you gotta know glad
Because you’re gonna know lonely
And you’re gonna know bad
When you’re rippin’ and a ridin’
And you’re coming on strong
You start slippin’ and slidin’
And it all goes wrong because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all

One day you got the glory
One day you got none
One day you’re a diamond
And then you’re a stone
Everything can change
In the blink of an eye

So let the good times roll
Before we say goodbye, because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all ~ Mark Knopfler

 

The last couple of weeks this has been my life to a tee…not waves of one or the other; but the constant flux. One hour I am the windshield, then SPLAT! I’m the bug. I ‘ll be rippin’ and a-ridin at a gig , feeling king of the world, getting full of my self and then I’m slipping and a sliding …at home looking at the images feeling like I fucked it up..could have done better.  I have pretty much always been a fool in love…

This ego mania with an inferiority complex just wrecks havoc. Fortunately I don’t need the drink or the drug anymore to magnify the whole ordeal.

As the lyrics reveal… ya have to experience all sides….it’s life.
