Crazy Ride

I was watching Ghost Whisperer last night.  The episode was about a teenage boy who was haunting a famous graphic novelist.   In true tradition of Ghost Whisperer, the ghost isn’t willing to share any tidbits about who he was, how he died, and why he’s haunting his victim.  Only disclosing that the “hauntee” has taken away his life.

It turns out that the ghost was trying to do something for his stepbrother whom he had been terrible to when he was still alive. On the day before he died, he was intent on pilfering cash from his father, stepmom, and stepbrother since he was thrown out of the house.  That was when he discovered the comic book his stepbrother was making.  That was when he realized that his stepbrother was really talented.  He was off to submit it to the novelist (who turned out to be the idol of his stepbrother) but the guy “didn’t even look at it.”   The ghost left the comic book there when he slipped into the thin ice of the lake while taking a shortcut home.  The haunting (he was possessing the novelist in drawing scenes of his own accidents) was to make the novelist to confess that he stole the comic book claiming it was his work since he was not able to create any original piece lately.

In the end, all ended well with the ghost making peace with his stepbrother – making sure he would never have to feel alone – and stepping into the light.  In the final scene, Melinda and Jim was hugging their son Aiden.  A really cute scene that you can watch through this link.  I’ve posted below the lyrics of the song in the ending credits.

Crazy Ride
Michelle Branch

Goodnight big moon
Sweet dreams baby
If I could have one wish tonight
It would be
You always keep
Keep the starlight in your eyes
One day you’ll grow up
One day you’ll walk in
In this big world on your own.
There’ll be days when
Your heart’ll break and
You’ll swear that all your strength is gone.

But then you’ll find a way to carry on

Heaven knows that it’s a crazy ride
It’s never perfect all the time
(It’ll pull you down and send you flyin’?)
So baby hold on tight
On this crazy ride

So don’t be scared when
You’re in the darkness
(The sun is smilin’ back at you?)
Your faith is gone
But it’s hangin’ on
It’s just on the other side of town.

Even when it’s lost, it can be found

Heaven knows that it’s a crazy ride
It’s never perfect all the time
(It’ll pull you down and send you flyin’?)
So baby hold on tight
On this crazy ride.

Heaven knows that it’s a crazy ride
It’s never perfect all the time
You know it’s just a crazy ride
It’s never perfect all the time
(It’ll pull you down and send you flyin’?)
So baby hold on tight
On this crazy ride.

Goodnight big moon,
Sweet dreams, baby.

Life sure is one crazy ride.  But as long as there are those moments that make it worthwhile and people around you to always wish for the best in you, bringing out the best in you.  The imperfections of the world are just things that matter not.  If you guys want to listen to the song Crazy Ride, here’s the link.
