songs that haunt me
Most people I know who are haunted by songs are haunted by songs that are current day and have some impact on their current situations.
Or that is my impression.
I am not. I am barely touched by anything current day. The songs that haunt me are songs from somewhere else. I do not know where. But they run through my head like a soft background to my life. And they say remember, remember — but remember what I do not know.
And then, sometimes, really un-often, they show up in the flesh.
*someday i would like to know why every song that resonates with me is a war rebel song written and sung over a hundred years ago on foreign soil
