November Rain

It's Saturday...and it's raining.

Could be worse, I suppose. Considering the date, it could be snowing. I guess I can take comfort in the rain. At least I don't have to shovel that.

Days like this always make me want to just stay put. Laze around the house, read a good book and enjoy the sound of the rain. Warmer days and summer rains require a walk around the marina or maybe the local park - but at this time of year, that's just asking for pneumonia.

I had plans today - but I can feel them falling apart as I type this.

There is always least in theory.

If ever there was a day to listen to this, it is today. I'm not the biggest GnR fan - but I always found this particular song to be haunting and somewhat mesmerizing. I think I'll put it on an endless loop, take my book, my cats and my coffee cup and curl up on the couch.

November Rain - Guns and Roses

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same

Nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

We've been through this such a long long time
Just tryin' to kill the pain

But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
Walking away

If we could take the time
to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time...on your own
Do you need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...
on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time...on my
Sometimes I need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...
on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
Nothin' lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one

Weekend rain ..... such dreariness. Perfect for a book and a cup of tea!

Or something else requiring the desire to stay indoors ... *wink*
