music in my head

Laying in the dark
In between my wake and sleep
with no memory of the nights’ dream
just this one refrain
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again
“I’ve been waiting for this moment, all my life” (Phil Collins)
there’s the dramatic buildup and the drum roll
hear it
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again

when i am aware of floating lyrics
it’s not the same tune 
night to night, seems
there’s a bunch of hard wired tunes
waiting to bring me awake
the heater thuds on
fresh hot air moves through night stillness
while “Sunny Skies” (James Taylor)
comes through simplistic note for note, in between these ears
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again

i turn on to my side
stuff a pillow under head for neck support
rest an open hand outside the sheets
“when you’re lying’ here in my arms” (Heaven - Bryan Adams)
swirls in this internal musical reality
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again
perhaps it is near the end of a dream
i will soon forget, the heroine moves through
layers of non-sequential dramas
when “Wild World” (Cat Stevens) intercedes
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again

and there are mornings when
my spotify road songs playlist
just orchestrates me awake
"oooooh hooooo, ahaaaaaaaaaaa
show me my silver lining” (First Aid Kit)
hearing music in my head
hearing it over and over again
