#NowPlaying a song about “writer’s block” by Sting (can’t blog, writing exams and checking papers)

(if on mobile device, pls click “Listen in browser” to play this  song written and performed by Sting … about  facing a blank page trying to write…)

     From the music magazine, Mojo, excerpted by songfacts.com : “Lyrically, this sounds like a love song, however it’s actually about facing a blank page when writing a record. Sting explained to Mojo: “Finding subject matter is difficult because I’m comfortable. That’s the snow imagery in ‘I Can’t Stop Thinking About You.’ Snow is the blank page.” ”

Now playing: “I Can’t Stop Thinking about You” written and performed by Sting

I Can’t Stop Thinking About You
by Sting
White page, an empty field of snow
My room is twenty-five below
This cold man chasing ghosts
A road lies underneath a buried boat
Dogs search the under-forest
We scour the empty streets
The fact remains until we find you
Our lives are incomplete
Do I hear laughter through a veil of snow and ice?
Where could you be on such a lonely winter’s night?
I can’t stop thinking about you
I can’t stop wanting you this way
I can’t face dreaming without you
That’s why I’m searching night and day
This heart’s a lonely hunter
These hands are frozen fists
I can’t stop thinking about you
I don’t care if you exist
Do I hear laughter from behind this veil of midnight?
What are you hiding in the frozen heart of winter?
Somewhere a church bell tolls
I know you’re close, your scent still warm
And then your trail turns cold, cold, cold
I can’t stop thinking about you
I can’t stop wanting you this way
I can’t face living without you
That’s why I’m searching night and day
This heart’s a lonely hunter
These hands are frozen fists
I can’t stop thinking about you
I don’t care if you exist
Do I hear laughter in the silence of the snow?
I know you’re hiding in this frozen heart of winter
A midnight church bell tolls
I know you’re close, your scent still warm
Then the trail turns cold, cold, cold
I can’t stop thinking about you
I can’t stop wanting you this way
I can’t face living without you
That’s why I’m searching night and day
This heart’s a lonely hunter
These hands are frozen fists
I can’t stop thinking about you
I don’t care if you exist
I can’t stop thinking about you
I can’t stop wanting you this way
I can’t face living without you
I can’t stop wanting you

… facing a so-called “writer’s block” is like

finding sleep

when your circadian rhythm

is

out- 0f-whack

(it’s easy to rhyme,

it’s not easy to write;

rhyming is not writing.)
