I'd go the whole wide world

She sleeps silently beside me but I can't sleep tonight. There is a song going through my head over and over and I need to exercise it, so that I might be able to sleep too.

It's the song from Stranger than Fiction, where the character Will Ferrell portrays only knows one song on the guitar. And as it happens, it's the one SHE knows as well.

Ah, there it is.

WRECKLESS ERIC's The Whole Wide World
When I was a young boy
My mama said to me
There's only one girl in the world for you
And she probably lives in Tahiti

I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Just to find her
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Find out where they hide her

That helps.
The music in that movie was as well done as the film. I may have to get the soundtrack I think.

Lying in bed I can tell that spring has come because in a fit of weather induced madness, I tore down the plastic layer we keep on the window for winter.

And tonight as we lie there in the darkness, the blind is up and the window is wide open. The cool night breeze fills the room with a feeling of freshness.

She taught me the simple joys of sleeping beneath quilts with a cool breeze blowing over me.
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Just to find her
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Find out where they hide her

What does the summer hold for us? Rest? Renewed hope?

New adventures to experience? New places to explore?

We'll see.

For now I'm going back to the warm bed, and the cool breeze that fills our room.
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Just to find her
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide world
Find out where they hide her

Night.

And good night to WRECKLESS ERIC, where ever he is.
Thanks for the tune in my head.

  1. Yup, this song has been owning me since I saw Stranger than Fiction as well. I actually went out and bought his album, and he's got some really great stuff.

    I've also turned a couple of friends into big Wreckless Eric fans too. Great song!

  6. Yes indeed...I have that song stuck in my head as well. And I just bought Stranger Than Fiction, so I keep playing that scene so I can hear the song. Is the soundtrack out??

    Anyway, I enjoyed your writing a lot. Reminds me of the relationship I'm in right now. Very special.
