Thoughts on a Wednesday night... er, Thursday morning...

So, I'm sitting here and thinking as I'm waiting for my photos to upload... This computer is so slow. I've been wondering about the "Why-do-bad-things-happen-to-good-people" question. I know the usual answers: "We all have trials we must face", "Sometimes there isn't a reason", "We all have our 'crosses' to bear", but I'm sick of these. I want answer to my "why?"! What have they done wrong that they are now receiving so much pain, suffering and heartache?

Anyways... that's my mini rant. Well, not really a rant, but my mini-ramble for the evening... er, morning as it's now after midnight.

So, below I've posted the lyrics to "Castles in the Air" by Don McLean. Not a favorite song, but a goodie and one that I've been thinking about lightly. I'd like to hear any thoughts any one out there has on it. I know the lyrics appear pretty simple, but I thought I'd ask just the same.

Castles in the Air

"And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
That I'm tired of castles in the air.
I've dot a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair.

Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky
A dream come true. I'll live there 'til I die.
I'm asking you to say my last goodbye.
The love we knew ain't worth another try.

Save me, from all the trouble and the pain.
I know I'm weak, but I can't face that girl again.
Tell her the reasons why I can't remain.
Perhaps she'll understand, if you tell it to her plain.

But how can words express the feel of sunlight in the morning?
In the hills, away from city strife.
I need a country woman for my wife.
I'm city born, but I love the country life.

For I cannot be part of the cocktail generation.
Partners waltz, devoid of all romance.
The music plays and everyone must dance.
I'm bowing out. I need a second chance.

And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
That I'm tired of castles in the air.
I've dot a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair."
-Don McLean
