I found my friend was ready for bed
I said good night thinking it was odd
That at 3PM you would go to bed.
It’s the 18-hour time difference
You see, I’m out of kilter with so many
You’d think living in the future
Would be an advantage
I know tomorrow’s weather before you
But mostly its lonely nights.
The Internet has introduced
New friends, new ideas
I am more aware of others
Learning all the time
Adjusting to rising early
Saying good night
In the middle of my afternoon.
The future I say looks good,
Once you catch up to me.
