I could be a great star, still I'm far from happy

I was awake for hours last night, unable to fall asleep, my mind racing. Today hasn't started out well. I woke up 16 minutes after I was supposed to be at the office because my power had gone out during the night and thus, disturbed my alarm. I jumped out of bed (the one morning that I didn't set my Blackberry alarm for back up!) and rushed around like a maniac. Miraculously, I made it to work quite quickly despite the blanket of snow covering the city this morning. Thankfully it was a mellow day to roll in a little later, as the snow had held up the majority of my co-workers and I had no meetings scheduled. Perhaps I needed that extra sleep and should just be grateful...(I did, and I am).

I stumbled upon an interview that Rufus Wainwright did, about the way he writes.

This answer was pretty.

Are there any particular emotions that are easy to write about?

Love, certainly. When you have a crush on someone,
when you're moved by someone's physical presence,
lyrics come like Mount St. Helens, songs come out of your ears!
The human personality is so gorgeous,
so above and beyond what any of us could create,
that you have to write in awe of it.

Sing me to sleep tonight,
I know you will....
