The Soundtrack

Do you ever feel as if the important moments of your life have their own soundtrack? I guess that I do.

Today as I did "the walk," which is the final walk around the building to say goodbye at my (now) old company, I had "Galileo" by the Indigo Girls running through my head. I don't think I realized that it was playing in the back of my mind until I walked out of the building for the very last time... then the song sounded louder. So I listened to it on CD as I ran errands, went to the doctor (regular check-up, nothing's wrong) and drove home.

I am staying home tonight with a bottle of wine and my animals, chilling out and resting from my rather exhausting week. There may be many or zero posts tonight based on the things going through my head... I can't tell yet, but for now I'll leave you with the soundtrack of my life.

Charissa's Lifetime: The Soundtrack
Track 5, Galileo (Amazon clip HERE)

Galileos head was on the block
The crime was looking up for truth
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
I try to trace them to my youth

And then you had to bring up reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I'm serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another lifetime

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

And then I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

I'm not making a joke, you know me
I take everything so seriously
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
In my lifetime I'm still not right

I offer thanks to those before me
That's all I've got to say
cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay
But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
But she'll say look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I'll write a book

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach the highest light
Except for galileo God rest his soul
(except for the resting soul of galileo)
King of night vision, king of insight

How long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
How long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
How long
