No Rain

 

Just want to share this song, No Rain, by Blind Melon. One of my favorites. It’s inconsistencies mimic my life with mental illness, with the upbeat rhythms and images combined with the sad and lonely tone of the lyrics. I have hoped for rain, although I adore the sun. When I am depressed, it’s oh so much easier when it’s raining… It’s not sane. Enjoy and find some dancing bumble bees to hang with.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin’ the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it’s not sane
It’s not sane
I just want someone to say to me, oh
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I’ll have it made
And I don’t understand why sleep all day
And I start to complain that there’s no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away but it’s a great escape
Escape, escape, escape
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
You don’t like my point of view, you think that I’m insane
It’s not sane, it’s not sane
I just want someone to say to me, oh
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I’ll have it made, I’ll have it made, I’ll have it made
Oh, no, no, you know, I really wanna, really gonna have it made
You know, I’ll have it made
