I’ve been listening to my “Meditation Music”playlist on my iPod over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been adding to it to reflect the melancholy thoughts that drift occasionally through my head. Today, as I went through my collection, I stumbled across Phantom of the Opera and added “Music of the Night”

To be quite honest, I’ve never really listened to all of the lyrics, it’s the music that hits me the most. But today, these lines got to me:

Close your eyes for your eyes will only tell the truth
And the truth isn’t what you want to see
In the dark it is easy to pretend..
That the truth is what it ought to be…

I wonder if I’ve been in the dark for a while, dreaming of a truth that in the end is just something I want to believe – but the actual truth is something completely different. It is so much easier to be left in the dark sometimes.
