Not Ready Yet

For some bizarre reason Not Ready Yet by the Eels has been on continuous loop in my head since Monday. I don't recall hearing the track recently so something must have triggered it from memory. Songs sometimes get attached to emotions, so something that happened this week may have triggered it (though I'd be at a complete loss to tell you what it was or why it triggered it).

For those of you who don't know the lyrics, they are below.

There's a world outside
And I know, 'cause I've heard talk
In my sweetest dream
I would go out for a walk

But I don't think I'm ready yet
Not feelin' up to it now
Just not that steady yet
And I don't need you telling me how

There's some happiness
If my stone face cracks again
Maybe some time sooner or later

But I don't think I'm ready yet
I'm not feelin' up to it now
Just not that steady yet
And I don't need You telling me how

So if I leave my room
Don't you tell me to lighten up
Maybe some time sooner or later

But I don't think I'm ready yet
Not feelin' up to it now
Just not that steady yet
I don't need you telling me how

I don't need you telling me how
I don't need you telling me how
I don't need you telling me how
I don't need you telling me how
I don't need you telling me how
I don't need you telling me how
I don't, don't need you telling me how - The Eels
The song is from the album Beautiful Freak which I have on CD somewhere. I'll have to dig it out this weekend and have a listen as despite not having listened to it for at least a few years I remember it being a really good album.
