One Of These Nights . . . .

Yesterday morning I did something very unusual.  I was ‘urged’ to do it, so I did.  Just before getting up, I listened to a song on my wife’s iPod (not one that she listens to, btw, but got on there), that she just happened to leave on the bed — and got TOTALLY into it.  It was really, really intense, almost as intense as the visions I had had a bit earlier just after waking, and feeling the message that I was going to read later that day from the GFL about all of us soon being able to live our grandest dreams, fulfil our most passionate desires. . . . .

Anyway, the musical and linguistic artistry of this song feels very appropriate for what is happening on this planet right now, and especially to all of us, internally.  I’ve highlighted some lines that seem to imply that the artists themselves were hinting at a deeper, more profound meaning than just that of seeking a ‘special’ fantasy woman to get wild with.  What do you think?

One Of These Nights

The Eagles

 One of these nights
One of these crazy old nights
We’re gonna find out
Pretty mama
What turns on your lights
The full moon is calling
The fever is high
And the wicked wind whispers
And moans

You got your demons
You got desires
Well, I got a few of my own

Oooh, someone to be kind to
In between the dark and the light
Oooh, coming right behind you
Swear I’m gonna find you
One of these nights

One of these dreams
One of these lost and lonely dreams
We’re gonna find one
One that really screams

I’ve been searching for the daughter
Of the devil himself
I’ve been searching for an angel in white
I’ve been waiting for a woman who’s a little
Of both
And I can feel her but she’s nowhere
In sight

Oooh, loneliness will blind you
In between the wrong and the right
Oooh, coming right behind you
Swear I’m gonna find you
One of these nights

One of these nights
In between the dark and the light
Coming right behind you
Swear I’m gonna find you
Get ya baby one of these nights
One of these nights
One of these nights
I can feel it
I can feel it
One of these nights
Coming right behind you
Swear I’m gonna find you now
One of these nights.. . . .
