Restless – be still my beating heart

I share the lyrics of one of my favorite songs by sting. This song was written of course for someone who is in love with another and cannot express the same as s/he is afraid due to an heartbreak suffered before. But my reason of sharing these lyrics is different.
I have been feeling extremely restless and unhappy about a lot of things in my life. No, practical knowledge and common sense says it’s not that bad but still there is something lurking in my mind and I really can’t point out the reason for slipping into sudden state of melancholia. In a flash the chorus of this song came into my mind. Read the lyrics of this song with the context of a restless soul and see if it makes sense.

“Be Still My Beating Heart”

Be still my beating heart
It would be better to be cool
It’s not time to be open just yet
A lesson once learned is so hard to forget
Be still my beating heart
Or I’ll be taken for a fool
It’s not healthy to run at this pace
The blood runs so red to my face
I’ve been to every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me so

I sink like a stone that’s been thrown in the ocean
My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion
Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart

Restore my broken dreams
Shattered like a falling glass
I’m not ready to be broken just yet
A lesson once learned is so hard to forget

Be still my beating heart
You must learn to stand your ground
It’s not healthy to run at this pace
The blood runs so red to my face
I’ve been to every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me

Never to be wrong
Never to make promises that break
It’s like singing in the wind
Or writing on the surface of a lake
And I wriggle like a fish caught on dry land
And I struggle to avoid any help at hand

I sink like a stone that’s been thrown in the ocean
My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion
Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart

I know not who I am, though only for a while I recognize the changes... It has been a while since I wrote something here. I come back now to write more for myself than the world. Somewhere someplace where I can keep my thoughts where someone may stumble upon them and read if it pleases them or just pass by.
