Standing Still

Sigh. You know what it's like when you get a song stuck in your head and can't get it out? Usually you hear it inadvertently and then your head just replays it again and again. Well, that's what has happened to me for the last day.

I was peacefully eating a Tostada Pizza at California Pizza Kitchen (very good, by the way!) when Jewel's Standing Still was being played in the background. I like her music, although I don't own any of her CD's or anything like that. Anyway, while I've heard the song before, it stuck in my head for some reason this time. I mean stuck!

Cuttin' through the darkest night in my two headlights Trying to keep it clear
but I'm losing it here to the twilight
There's a dead end to my left
there's a burning bush to my right
You aren't in sight
you aren't in sight

Now, it would be good if some how I could draw a deep meaning out of all of this. You know, something about being stuck and how you can learn from it (don't listen to music and eat a weird pizza at the same time?). I can't.

Or am I standing still beneath the darkened sky?
Or am I standing still
with the scenery flying by?
Or am I standing still
out of the corner of my eye?
Was that you passing me by?
Are you passing me by? (Passing me by)

I've tried listening to, or thinking about, other music to no avail. Listening to Sixpence's cover of Don't Dream It's Over gave a slight repreeve, but not for long. It would seem, for the moment, my mind is indeed Standing Still. Oh well, maybe if I got another pizza…
