it's like the cold if you were dead


it was raining like mad tonight. the wind kept trying to blow my car into the next lane. there was a crazy accident on my way home, one car really got fucked up. you can't really see much in the pic, but i like the way the lights glow and reflect off the wet road. when it rains like this (and it's been happening a lot lately), i'm always reminded of the cure song, "plainsong", from disintegration. a rainy, windy night like tonight feels like this song.

"I think it's dark
And it looks like rain" you said
"And the wind is blowing like it's the end of the world" you said
"And it's so cold
It's like the cold if you were dead"
Then you smiled for a second

"I think I'm old
And I'm feeling pain" you said
"And it's all running out like it's the end of the world" you said
"And it's so cold
It's like the cold if you were dead"
Then you smiled for a second

Sometimes you make me feel
Like I'm living at the edge of the world
Like I'm living at the edge of the world
"It's just the way I smile"
You said

listen:
the cure > plainsong

Huh, raining like crazy in California and here in the UK we're having hose-pipe bans because of 19 months of below average rainfall so all the reservoirs are nearly empty. Not good straight after a winter.

Global warming's fun ain't it? ;-)

Nice to hear a bit of The Cure again by the way. Cheers.

we (the sf bay area) have a new record for the month of march. 24 days of rain. fucking crazy. i think people here are getting rain rage or something.

24 days is a lot of rain, I'll grant you that, even for rainy old England that'd be a lot. In California?!

Must be all the global warming ;-)
