Seems I got to have a change in SCENE,
‘Cause every night I have the strangest dreams.
Imprisoned by the way things used to be, yeah,
Left here on my own or so it seems.
I got to leave before I start to scream,
‘Cause somebody locked the door and took the key.
I have written in the past that I create playlists of various musical artists on Spotify.
One of those artists is Joe Cocker and the lyrics above are from his song “Feeling Alright”. The first line of that song states that he got to have a change of SCENE.
Many of us think a change of SCENE is the way to deal with a problem at work or in a relationship.
I got to watch a Netflix documentary about Joe Cocker a couple years ago called Joe Cocker: Mad Dog with Soul.
He did try a change of SCENE in his life battling some of his demons.
When Joe Cocker died in 2014 he was living in Colorado far from where he grew up. He died of lung cancer. He had smoked 40 cigarettes a day until he quit in 1991. He also battled alcohol and drugs most of his entire life.
Cocker was born in Sheffield England. He got married in 1987 to Pam Baker Cocker and was living at Mad Dog Ranch in Colorado when he died. Joe Cocker did love Colorado and in the last years of his life he apparently got great joy out of his change of SCENE.
What most people don’t realize is
Very often, a change of self is needed more than a change of SCENE
