la la la la la

this morning, around 4 am, i woke up with perfect words and a perfect melody running through my head for a song my subconscious is trying to get me to write. this is a very frequent occurrence; in fact, it's been happening more and more frequently as of late. sometimes it's a symphony, sometimes it's a rap song (that one was interesting), sometimes it's a love song. and always i run it through my mind over and over and over again so when i wake up i'll be able to remember it and find some way to transcribe it, but come morning, it's always gone.

i've thought about keeping a tape recorder next to my bed so i can record the melodies at 4 am when my subconscious wakes me up with its songs, but i'm a little scared of listening to them once they're recorded, afraid they'll be about nothing more than cottage cheese and sidewalks. whatever that means.
