Happy St 4th Independence Tuesday

Woke up this morning with Tom Petty "Don't Fade on Me" running through my head. I'd ask if this is what happens when I sleep well, but I am not entirely sure that I did. I hate to say this, but I think I am losing my happy place.
It's my fault if I am. I opened a door that should have stayed shut. There is this fantasyland I go from time to time, and as great as the fantasies are--
If you are ever looking for lyrics or poems or whatnot, I highly suggest Poemhunter.
I don't feel as much like writing as I thought I had this morning. Apparently, everything must stay in my head for a bit longer. So, here get it stuck in your head too...
                        Don’t Fade on Me
                            Tom Petty 
I remember you so clearly
The first one through the door
I return to find you drifting
Too far from the shore

I remember feeling this way
You can lose it without knowing
You wake up and you don’t notice
Which way the wind is blowing

Don’t fade
Don’t fade on me

You were the one who made things different
You were the one who took me in
You were the one thing I could count on
Above all you were my friend

Don’t fade
Don’t fade on me

Well your clothes hang on a wire
And the sun is overhead
But today you are too weary
To even leave your bed

Was it love that took you under?
Or did you know too much?
Was it something you could picture?
But never could quite touch?

Don’t fade
Don’t fade on me
