For me, especially when I need to rest, long-term solo travel comes with a roller coaster of emotions. A lot of famous singers wrote a song about this! I love listening to music, it is my life. Also, long-term solo travel can make you take a lot of shameless selfies and unnecessary videos as you become attention starved. You can judge me, it is OK. Hahaha, yes, I am losing it. Or maybe I have found it. I have finally figured out how to occupy myself on a rest day! Sell your TV and come sing with me!
“Sometimes I feel so happy, sometimes I feel so sad, sometimes I feel so happy. Because: I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh. I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay, wastin’ time. And so I tell myself: If you’re lost and alone or you’re sinking like a stone, carry on. May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, carry on. Carry on, carry on. But honestly, but honestly, but honestly: Today, could be the best day ever. Today, just might be. I can’t see into the future, even though it’s right in front of me. Because: I’m a man on fire, Walking through your street, with one guitar and two dancing feet. Only one desire, that’s left in me, I want the whole damn world to come dance with me. Ohhhhhhhh, come dance with me. And so I tell myself: Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style. Ain’t got no girl to make you smile but don’t worry be happy. Cause when you worry your face will frown and that will bring everybody down so don’t worry, be happy (don’t worry, be happy now). I’m thinking out loud, maybe.
Truth of the matter is I’m complicated. You’re as straight as they come. You go ’bout your day, baby. While I hide from the sun. It’s better if you don’t understand. ‘Cause you won’t know what it’s like until you try. And give me one good reason why I should never make a change. Baby if you hold me then all of this will go away. Give me one good reason why I should never make a change baby if you hold me then all of this will go away.
But somewhere along the way, I started to smile again, I don’t remember when. Somewhere along the way, things will turn out just fine, I know it’s true this time.”
