Wish You Well (Or how much I love being psychic)

Sometimes I have to marvel at my own idiot/savant-like ability to predict the stuff that happens on TV shows.

Then again, most of the shows on TV these days are pretty trite and predictable, but I digress.

A little backstory: About 5 weeks ago, I was at my work station here at the Command Bunker, ensconced behind my magic laptop merrily writing whilst listening to some radio stations streaming online. I have a list of preset stations that I follow when I'm writing, especially if Missus Steve is watching something I have zero interest in. My most frequent stations to follow are KROQ-HD out of Los Angeles and Classic Live-105 out of San Fransisco. Both play 80's and 90's New Wave and Alternative.

I was skimming my presets when I stopped in on X-107.5 in Las Vegas when I heard this really haunting & sad song by an artist that I'd never heard of. I thought Missus Steve would like it so I copied the artist & title down & sent her You-Tubing to listen. The song is called "Wish You Well" by a young lady named Katie Herzig. We liked the song, and kinda filed the info away. I thought, however, that the song was the perfect sad, chick-song for an episode of Grey's Anatomy. We both agreed that it would have been perfect to play on the first episode of the new season once they revealed that George dies. At the time, we were still well over a couple weeks away from the episode airing but we already knew what was coming.

The song wasn't featured in that episode, but be damned if it didn't show up in last night's episode, at a critically sad moment in the storyline. I felt vindicated as hell....

I'd like to share the song with you guys in hopes that you'll like it too. I was unable to find an official video for the song, so I'm just gonna link a fan-made video off YouTube and give ya'll the lyrics.

Wish You Well
Written by Katie Herzig (Katie Herzig Music/ASCAP)

I, I want to wish you well
I didn’t watch you go
Cause I suppose I don’t know how
I, I will remember you
Not the way you left but how you lived
And what you knew

I, I want to feel your hands
I want to feel your fire burning
Right from where I stand

I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want toknow it’s you
When I hear your voice inside my head
Inside my room
I, want to touch the sky
I want to see the stars twinkle
Like they were your eyes

I’ll find my way
You showed me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want to smell your scent
I want to breathe the air I did before
Before you left

I, I want to wish you well
The only reason my heart beats
Is cause you showed it how

I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how
You show me how
You showed me how

Catchy tune!

Sometimes while watching TV, I roll my eyes and think "Geez, I could write this stuff."

I'm off to pick up the latest Dexter novel from the library; I've been in the queue for the last month. Can't wait to how that one will turn out!

This was cool, Steve! I sometimes have great prophetic powers like this too!

I found a video of Katie Performing this live!
