Seasons

Day 22~ A song you listen to when you’re sad

In the early ’90’s the movie Singles came out and with it, one of the best soundtracks ever created.  My friend Traci & I practically wore it out on all our long drives.  Flannels, Doc Martins and a severe chip on your shoulder were the fashion of the time and I had it perfected.  This song was one of my favorites off the album and I still listen to it on days when I want to feel sad.  Chris Cornell’s voice has a way of soothing you while making you search for the meaning of it all.  The lyrics so clearly speak to me of a man looking for salvation.  For a person to save them from themselves.  Share the pain and take it away.

Summer nights and long warm days
Are stolen as the old moon falls
My mirror shows another face
Another place to hide it all
Another place to hide it all
And I’m lost, behind
The words I’ll never find
And I’m left behind
As seasons roll on by

Sleeping with a full moon blanket
Sand and feathers for my head
Dreams have never been the answer
And dreams have never made my bed
Dreams have never made my bed

And I’m lost, behind
The words I’ll never find
And I’m left behind
As seasons roll on by

Now I wanna fly above the storm
But you can’t grow feathers in the rain
And the naked floor is cold as hell
This naked floor reminds me
Oh the naked floor reminds me

And I’m lost, behind
Words I’ll never find
And I’m left behind
As seasons roll on by

If I should be short on words
And long on things to say
Could you crawl into my world
And take me worlds away
Should I be beside myself
And not even stay

And I’m lost, behind
Words I’ll never find
And I’m left behind
As seasons roll on by

    I wasn’t sure if this should be a song you listen to when you’re already sad, or one you listen to when you want to be sad. I hate country music, but I accidently stopped on a station one day and this song came on. It made me cry. In the car. In traffic.

      Yeah, country music is pretty good for finding a sad one. I like that you heard it in a gas station but held it together until you were driving in traffic.
