Hanalei - Nothing Works

I've been looking for a long time for a website that streams this song, and I finaly did. It's actually a video. The visuals themselves are alright, but ignore them. It's the audio that I want to show people(minus the stupid dog at the end). Simply put, I love this song. Maybe the lyrics just speak to me, or maybe it's my immense respect for Brian Moss's songwriting abilities. Either way, I've listened to this song countless times, and I'm still not 100% sure why.

You and I, we feel everything times ten
there's no point in being civil
when we'll never just be friends

Darlin' we'll always have baggage left to claim
we'll never be normal, we'll never be the same
trying so hard to find that easy way out
you're not settlin' down, you're settlin' for doubt

Do dreams really mean something?

Wanna hear something crazy? Remember the last two dream posts I made? The girl that was in them left me this facebook wallpost yesterday. That's some crazy stuff.

you were in my dream last night. It was really random, I was walking in a crowded train station like thing and you just ran up and said "Thank you." I said "For what?" and then you said (giddy as a school girl) " I have a girlfriend" and ran off. It was really bizarre.

Freud was messed up... (Dream Part 2)

I had that wonderful dream again last night. This time I was in a parking garage, talking to mystery girl on the phone, who was parked a few cars behind me. This time my brain managed to get to the kissing part but then when we left, driving separate cars, I lost her again. Why must my imaginary sex/love-life be as frustrating as my real one?

Anyway, I've noticed a pattern in my dreams over the years. Usually the dreams involve people I love, in places that I've been. Yesterday I drove to the airport to pick up my parents, and my friend Ashley drove my car so that we could go to the Mall while my parents went home. The girl in my dream was not Ashley, although I do believe that she is based solely off a girl that I have known since middle school.

I believe that the images I see every night are based off of past experiences and brief images that my mind has captured and held onto. Everything in between is my imagination. For example I remember a dream where I was walking through a park, and a blue ball came bouncing past me. When I really thought about it, that happened to me a week earlier in real life. The ball was red, and I wasn't in a park, but it still entered my frame of vision from the same angle and bounced past in the same manner. That is why being in the parking garage makes so much sense. I highly doubt they are some sort of Freudian subconscious fantasy involving a dirty mall parking garage.
