Grateful Dead - Looks Like Rain



I woke today, and felt your side of bed
The covers were still warm where you'd been layin'
You were gone, my heart was filled with dread
You might not be sleeping here again

It's all right, 'cause I love you
And that's not gonna change
Run me round, make me hurt again and again
But I'll still sing you love songs
Written in the letters of your name
And brave the storm to come
For it surely looks like rain

Did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love
And guess from their cries you were listening to a fight
Well you know, hate's just the last thing they're thinking of
They're only trying to make it through the night

I only want to hold you, I don't want to tie you down
Or fence you in the lines I might have drawn
It's just that I have gotten used to having you around
My landscape would be empty if you were gone

It's all right, 'cause I love you
And that's not gonna change
Run me round, make me hurt again and again
But I'll still sing you love songs
Written in the letters of your name
And brave the storm to come
For it surely looks like rain

Whoa, looks like rain
Turning grey and it surely looks like rain
Whoa, surely looks like rain
Oh, looks like rain
Whole world turning grey and it looks like rain
Oh, looks like rain
Oh, here comes the rain
Turning grey and it looks like rain

Grateful Dead - Its All Over Now (Cover of a Bobby Womack song & tune)
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

This is a perfect song to describe how I feel about my last break up.

I've had my heart dragged around a few times. Who does it more, Taiwanese or Westerners :ponder: ?

Since Stevie Nicks has been mentioned more than once, here's a relevant song that's rumored to be about her.
Warren Zevon, "Hasten Down The Wind"
