I’ve been really getting into this whole cover song thing, and in the process, I’ve hit my normal existential crisis mode, essentially, why does it matter, who cares, there are so many people in the world why does it even matter?
But it doesn’t change the fact that I have the ability to affect my small, immediate universe.
I learned this song recently, because I feel like with everything going on in this world, John Lennon’s word’s are more poignant than anything I could say on the matter. Here, I’ll let you listen.
So much is done in the dark. And there are always miles of bridges to cross. I’m already thirty years old, my looks won’t last forever. Beyond that, I don’t know how to make a living doing what I love in this world. I don’t even know if I care about the exchange of money for what I do, I simply wish I could do it without selling myself out to the world, doing things I don’t love to barely make ends meet, with no real hope of getting out of that grind.
I’m only one person. And who knows what my reason for being here is. I only know I desire to share art. And I want you to share yours. And I write to a small audience, hoping someday I may resonate with someone.
I’m just one girl in a world full of girls with guitars. I don’t profess to be something more than I am. I’m a working class person, an artist, a girl.
I’m nothing more than you, you’re nothing more than me. Some people get to be big stars in the world. The rest of us carry them on the back of our obscurity. Simply being human is the point of life, I suppose. Anything else is icing on the cake.
With that being said, I wish I could have met John Lennon.
