Mental detective work… I woke up this morning with seven words and a fraction of a tune in my head: “If I could make it known that…” I knew it was something I hadn’t heard in a long, long time. On the Metro ride this morning, the tone of the singer’s voice — whiny and scratchy — came back to me. The song was by Our Lady Peace, a band I haven’t listened to since high school. So when I got to work, I looked up all of their songs and figured it out. Here ’tis: “If I don’t make it known that/I’ve loved you all along
just like the sunny days that/we ignore because/we’re all dumb & jaded/and I hope to God I figure out/what’s wrong…” Why did this song appear in my head this morning? I’m convinced it means something. But what. (Dun dun dun.)
