Lyrics for Monday and Buneary


Somewhere, Someday
By Jennifer Paige, Mark Clifford Mueller, and Andrew Goldmark

When clouds above you start to pour
And all of your doubts rain like a storm
And you don't know who you are anymore
Let me help you find what you've been searching for

Somewhere there's a field and a river
You can let your soul run free
Someday let me be the giver
Let me bring you peace
Somewhere there's a break in the weather
Where your heart and spirit go free
Someday it'll be for the better
Let this bring you peace

I know you think no one sees
The weight on your shoulders but you can't fool me
And aren't you tired of standing so tall
Let me be the one to catch you when you fall

Somewhere there's a field and a river
You can let your soul run free
Someday let me be the giver
Let me bring you peace
Somewhere there's a break in the weather
Where your heart and spirit go free
Someday it'll be for the better
Let me bring you peace

Let me bring you joy, let me bring you peace
Take these tears that you cry and trust them to me
Let me give you heart, and let me give you hope
Be the one constant love that you've never known

Somewhere there's a field and a river
You can let your soul run free
Someday let me be the giver
Let me bring you peace
Somewhere there's a break in the weather
Where your heart and spirit go free
Someday it'll be for the better
Let me bring you peace

I put those lyrics there because I associate them with Pokemon -- N'Sync's cover of the song is on the first Pokemon movie album -- but even more, I associate them with Star Trek: Voyager for reasons that some of you will recognize instantly and some of you never will. I kept seeing people in the neighborhood walking by playing Pokemon Go, and since son and I had had a conversation the day before about how he didn't think he'd find as many Pokespots near our house as his lab group at Texas State has been finding on campus, I downloaded the game and walked in a circle around the nearest cul-de-sac, during which time I caught two Pidgeys and two Rattatas to go with my initial Squirtle. I also caught -- well, saw -- a medium-sized bunny (see below).





The rest of my Sunday was entirely about cleaning and watching sports in the background -- first the Wimbledon men's final, then the mixed doubles, then the Euro 2016 soccer final, then the end of the Orioles game. In between I did a lot of reshelving, sorting, discarding, and cleaning in the kitchen and dining room. We'd had plans to go see the Wonder exhibit at the Renwick before it closed, but as happened every other time we've set out to go see the exhibit, something else intervened, so I'm going to assume the exhibit would have collapsed on my head or something if I went and I was meant not to see it. We have put out piles and piles of food magazines for recycling and now we're watching the Stephen Fry chef Bones episode.
