sometimes

::dogs barking incessantly::
Life is slowly returning to…I wouldn’t call it normal…I’m not sure what to call it! (After 10 minutes w/the Synonym Finder, I still don’t know what to call it.)

I have a pretty hefty to-do list…I could put them all into 43-things.com, I’ve tried that before though, and all it did was help me procrastinate more!  Someone always gets mad at me because I can’t ‘relax’…I will, eventually…I really do have a lot to do…now that the house is painted and carpet is in, I finally can start putting things back together.  If anyone knows a good solution for re-doing a closet please let me know!

I really had a great time this summer, and as crazy as it was, it clarified a lot for me and I learned a lot about myself.  Though, I’m still trying to convince myself that it was a vacation! ;)

Ok, off to launder things….

James – Sometimes
There’s a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder
Crack and thunder, is closing in, is closing in
The rain floods gutters, and makes a great sound on the concrete
On a flat roof, there’s a boy leaning against the wall of rain
Aerial held high, calling "come on thunder, come on
thunder"

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your
soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your
soul

It’s a monsoon, and the rain lifts lids off cars
Spinning buses like toys, stripping them to chrome
Across the bay, the waves are turning into something else
Picking up fishing boats and spewing them on the shore

The boy is hit, lit up against the sky, like a sign, like a neon
sign
And he crumples, drops into the gutter, legs twitching
The flood swells his clothes and delivers him on, delivers him
on

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your
soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your
soul

There’s four new colors in the rainbow
An old man’s taking polaroids
But all he captures is endless rain, endless rain
He says listen, takes my head and puts my ear to his
And I swear I can hear the sea

Somtimes, when I look in your eyes I can see your soul
(I can reach your soul)
(I can touch your soul)
Sometimes
