"Watching the Wheels" - John Lennon

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange,
Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,
When I tell that I'm doing Fine watching shadows on the wall,
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go,

People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem,
Only solutions,
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time,

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go.

So while writing out definitions for the next Biology chapter this Wednesday, I was listening to music from my old Sony Mini Disc player, and this song came on. I used to think that this was "My Song", meaning that this song applied exactly to how I think, perceive myself, and how I was living my life, especially the first two verses. Midway through the song I thought about how I interpreted the lyrics and its meaning to me, and I came to the discovery that I'm no longer "sitting here watching the wheels go round and round." A year ago I decided what to make of myself career-wise and I'm finally doing something about it. I'm no longer foolishly daydreaming about my dream man, being rich, and living in a fantasy world. Now my daydreams have become goals that I will work hard to achieve. I want to be with Henry for the rest of my life, I want us to have a family of our own, be it with dogs, kids, both, one or the other or whatever we ultimately decide.

Now my search continues for the next applicable Lennon song. Maybe even a George Harrison song... his songs are pretty deep too. How about "Wah-Wah", to apply to our current living situation?
