Title: Ode to Doyle

Title: Ode to Doyle
 
Plot: Heh...nope, no plot to worry about  ;)

Written:  09.26.01

Feedback: would be nice : )

Distribution:: sure.   Just lemme know where ya put it so I can go check it out!

Obligatory Disclaimer: blah blah, I don't own Doyle, or Glenn Quinn (damn shame, that), R.E.M., or anything else but my computer and my 2 cats. 

Author's note:  Yeah, so one day in chat I got the idea to twist the lyrics to "Losing my Religion" by R.E.M. to fit the life and death of Doyle.  The original lyrics are posted first, just in case you've been living under a rock and have never heard this song before  ;).  Enjoy!

Losing my Religion
by: R.E.M.



Oh
life. Is bigger.
It's bigger than you
and you are not me.
The things that I will go to.
The distance in your eyes...

Oh no I've said too much;
I've set it up.

That's me in the corner,
that's me in the spot-light
losing my religion.
Trying to keep up with you
and I don't know if I can do it.

Oh no I've said too much.
I haven't said enough.
I thought that I heard you laughing.
I thought that I heard you sing.

I think I thought I saw you try.


Every whisper;
every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions.
Trying to keep an eye on you
like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool.
Oh no I've said too much.
I've set it up.

Consider this, consider this -
hint of the century
consider this
that brought me to my knees
hell,
what if all these fantasies come
flailing around?

Now I've said
too much.

I thought that I heard you laughing.
I thought that I heard you sing.
I think I thought I saw you try.


That was just a dream
that was just a dream
that's me in the corner
that's me in the spot-light
losing my religion.
Trying to keep up with you
and I don't know if I can do it.

Oh no I've said too much.
I haven't said enough.

I thought that I heard you laughing;
I thought that I heard you sing.
I think I thought I saw you try.
But that was just a dream
try
cry
try

That was just a dream
just a dream
just a dream
dream




* and now....the Ode to Doyle: *




Oh
my. Headache.
It's bigger than you.
Man it's killin' me.
The lengths that I will go to
for the Powers That Be.


Oh no I've said too much...
they've set me up.

That's me in the corner.
That's me in the spot-light,
havin' lots of visions.
Tryin' ta open the bottle,
and I don't know if I can do it.

Oh no, I've drunk too much.
I haven't drunk enough.
I thought I was at the races...
I thought I was at the bar.

But now I find I'm on the floor.


Every moment;
every waking hour,
I'm sufferin' from visions.

Holdin'  my hand up to my head...
This migraine isn't very cool. Oh.
Oh no it hurts too much.
This really sucks.

Consider this, consider this -
Now the Powers that Be...
consider this.
Have brought me to my knees,
hell.
Now I've all these fantasies, just
plaguin'  me now.

Now I've said
too much.

I love his flowing overcoat...
I imagine him in tights.
Love that brooding vampire guy.


But that is just a dream.
I know that's just a dream.


'Cause that's me in the corner.
That's me in the spot-light,
and now I'm on a mission.

Tryin' ta figure out who
ta help, and I don't know if I can do it.

Oh no, I'm not sure how...
but I'm melting now.

I thought that there were still heroes...
I thought our "rats" were low.
But now I'm dissolving in a blinding glow.


Is that it, am I done?

why?
cry
white
light

That's it now I'm done.
Now I'm done.
Now I'm done.

done.
