standing on a corner for a while

Have you ever had one f those days where you get up with a stupid grin plastered on your face, and you can’t get rid of it?  You feel like skipping a to the tune of a beat in your head, and you have a ready smile for everyone you meet on the street?  Everything is sunshiny and happy and it feels, really feels like birds are following you wherever you go, chirping excitedly like int he advent of spring?  When nothing seems to bother you — not the traffic, the pollution, the smell of strangers, the urgency of deadlines, of paperwork that needs finishing?

Well. This isn’t one of those fucking days for me.

In Repair
John Mayer
Too many shadows in my room
Too many hours in this midnight
Too many corners in my mind
So much to do to set my heart right
Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

Stood on the corner for a while
To wait for the wind to blow down on me
Hoping it takes with it my old ways
And brings some brand new look upon me
Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

And now I’m walking in a park
All of the birds they dance below me
Maybe when things turn green again
It will be good to say you know me

Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unready
Oh I’m never really ready, I’m never really ready
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
