As I'm packing up to leave (again), as Davidson packs up in many different ways, this strikes a chord--

2008 Davidson Basketball highlights songs =

"Welcome to the Jungle"
(we got fun and games, we got everything you want)

"How Far We've Come"
(wakin up at the start of the end of the world, but it's feelin just like every other mornin before, now I wonder what my life is gonna mean if it's gone)

"Superstar"
(if you are what you say you are... then have no fear)

"Sweet Caroline"
(good times never seemed so good-- I'd been inclined to believe they never would)

2009 Davidson Basketball highlights songs =

"Let It Rock"
(because when I arrive, I bring the fire)

"Just Dance"
(s'gonna be ok, just dance)

"Viva la Vida"
(that was when I ruled the world...)

I'm really looking forward to November, pumped despite that twinge of something's missing, and it will be new and exciting and the same and I love it, but even something as small as those song choices and the order they're in, and the way my heart soaks in the notes makes me feel it again--

Once in a lifetime.

And hallelujah I was there.
