"Trying Not To Think About It" as written by and Juliana Hatfield....
Southern California is bad for the soul
And New York City takes its toll
The Mississippi River has a mean undertow
How can I shield myself from the things that I hear
I want to close my eyes and sleep for a year
Tell me that it's only a dream

That it's a nightmare
Trying not to think about it
Trying not to think about it
How can your mother be so strong
When her only baby is gone
I don't know where you are
Everything is wrong
So I'm trying not to think about it

    General CommentThis song is about Jeff Buckley...lately I'm on a Jeff Buckley kick, which happens about every three months or so; I love him so much...this time around I decided to try and find all the songs that have been written or dedicated or inspired by Jeff, and in my research, this song came up, and I think it's beautiful and sweet...something Jeff would appreciate.
