[SPOILER]
Good News
Mac Miller
I spent the whole day in my head
Do a little spring cleaning, I'm always too busy dreaming
Well, maybe I should wake up instead
A lot of things I regret, but I just say I forget
Why can't it just be easy?
Why does everybody need me to stay?
Oh, I hate the feeling
When you're high but you're underneath the ceiling
Got the cards in my hand I hate dealing
Yeah
Get everything I need, then I'm gone
But it ain't stealing
Can I get a break?
I wish that I could just get out my goddamn way
What is there to say?
There ain't a better time than today
Maybe I'll lay down for a little, yeah
'Stead of always trying to figure everything out
And all I do is say, "Sorry"
Half the time, I don't even know what I'm sayin' it about
Good news, good news, good news
That's all they wanna hear
No, they don't like it when I'm down
But when I'm flying, oh, it make 'em so uncomfortable
So different, what's the difference?
When it ain't that bad
It could always be worse
I'm running out of gas, hardly anything left
Hope I make it home from work
Well, so tired of being so tired
Why I gotta build something beautiful just to go set it on fire?
I'm no liar, but sometimes the truth don't sound like the truth
Maybe 'cause it ain't, I just love the way it sound when I say it
Yeah, so what I do?
If you know me, it ain't anything new
Wake up to the moon, haven't seen the sun in a while
But I heard that the skies still blue, yeah
Heard they don't talk about me too much no more
And that's a problem with a closed door
Good news, good news, good news
That's all they wanna hear
No, they don't like it when I'm down
But when I'm flying, oh, it make 'em so uncomfortable
So different, what's the difference?
There's a whole lot more for me waiting on the other side
I'm always wondering, if it feel like summer
I know maybe I'm too late, I could make it there some other time
Then I'll finally discover
That there's a whole lot more for me waiting
That there's a whole lot more for me waiting
I know maybe I'm too late, I could make it there some other time
Then I'll finally discover
That it ain't that bad
Ain't so bad
Well, it ain't that bad
At least it don't gotta be no more
No more, no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more
Hey
Mm, hey, mm

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer -
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North
The birth place of Valour, the country of Worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands forever I love.

Farewell to the mountains high cover'd with snow;
Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;
Farewell to the forrests and wild-hanging woods;
Farwell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
Chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

Robert Burns

Dunno about the wisdom or relevance, if any, of unexpected or random returns.

But this song came back to me after more than 30 years since occasional radio airings, even after my never caring for it, ever.

The refrain came back. No accounting. "Sara".

Number-One hit on Ides of March, 1986. "Ear-worm" for three days, fading now. Whew... . ;-)



Other videos are out there with lots of action and doings, with this track. I found that action distracting, and just wanted the lyrics to ...speak.

However schmaltzy.

Sara

by: Starship, Jefferson Starship

Go now, don't look back, we've drawn the line
Move on, it's no good to go back in time
I'll never find another girl like you, for happy endings it takes two
We're fire and ice, the dream won't come true
Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sara, Sara, no time is a good time for goodbyes
Danger in the game when the stakes are high
Branded, my heart was branded while my senses stood by
I'll never find another girl like you, for happy endings it takes two
We're fire and ice, the dream won't come true
Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sara, Sara, no time is a good time, oh
Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sara, Sara, no time is a good time for goodbyes
Loved me like no one has ever loved me before
(And Sara) Hurt me, no one could ever hurt me more
(And Sara) Sara, nobody loved me anymore
I'll never find another girl like you, no
We're fire and ice, and a dream
Sara
Sara, Sara no time is a good time, oh
Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sara, Sara, no time is a good time, for good bye's
Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes
Sara, Sara no time like the first time
Sara, Sara
Ooh Sara, why did it, why did it, why did it all fall apart
Sara, Sara (uh Sara)
Sara

? I remember going to see Starship & the audience was very hostile wanting Airplane not Starship, chanting "White Rabbit" and one guy trying to jump on the stage and Grace Slick kicking him in the head. Good Times!

I’ve been exploring and found this, The Verve, Bitter Sweet Symphony.

Original official version:


Super extended version:
“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”
