I've always loved music... Way back when I was school and college, I played trumpet and sang in all sorts of bands, choirs, and choruses. It always helped focus my mind, when I never knew I had ADHD. It helped me express myself in ways that I could never find adequate words for. So, allow me to continue the tradition with songs that exemplify, to me, what it's like to live inside my head.
Feel free to join in, should the mood strike you.
First, we'll begin with a song for all those times I am desperately trying to pay attention to my poor wife, as she tries to converse with me...
BOUNCING AROUND THE ROOM, Phish
The woman was a dream I had, though rather hard to keep. For when my eyes were watching hers, they closed, and I was still asleep. For when my hand was holding hers, she whispered words and I awoke.
And faintly bouncing round the room, the echo of whomever spoke. And I awoke. And faintly bouncing round the room, the echo of whomever spoke.
The place I sought was far beneath the surface of the sea. My sight was poor, but I was sure the sirens sang their song for me. They dance above me as I sink. I see them through a crystal haze, and hear the sweet sound bouncing round the never-ending coral maze. The crystal haze, and hear them bouncing round the room the never-ending coral maze.
Then before and now once more, I'm bouncing round the room.
That time then and once again, I'm bouncing round the room.
And I awoke. And faintly bouncing round the room, the echo of whomever spoke.
