i’ve had The Jayhawks new cd on for the past three days. mostly i just listen to the song “save it for a rainy day” over and over and over again (are you surprised? i tend to do this a lot).
mostly for lyrics like this:
you never make your mind up/ like driving with your eyes shut/ rough around the edges/ won’t someone come and take you home?/ waiting for a breakthrough/ what will you set your mind to?
can’t disguise the living/ all the miles you’ve been through/ looking like a train wreck/ wearing too much makeup/ the burden that you carry, more than one soul can ever bear.
but then the chorus is
don’t look so sad marina, there’s another part to play/ don’t look so sad marina, save it for a rainy day
but the thing is, i can’t sing it “don’t look so sad jodina” because that sounds absolutely ridiculous. so instead i sing it, “don’t look so sad jodi-hun.” it kind of works, but not really. even so, i don’t mind. and even though the songs words look pretty sad, it’s so damn fun to sing along to, you wouldn’t believe it. you should probably buy the cd for this song alone, it’s worth it. honest.
