the rain fell all night and it kept me awake
it was still falling by morning.
it was hard to take.
and you were sleeping on the floor,
breathing free and even,.
if i ever want to drive myself insane,
all i have to do is watch you breathing
and at 5 AM, i turned the radio on,
and an old mans voice sang a short sweet song,
and then the static roared again hungry for blood
i heard the rain falling from the rain spout
down down into the sweet wet mud,
and you punched out all the windows
and the wind began to wail
and you gathered your hair behind your head
like god was gonna catch you by the pony tail,
and then the old voice crackled through the static.
and i felt young and alive
and the hair stood up on the back of my neck
we were rising from the grave, yeah yeah.

    "This is a love song, I wrote it for my wife...(plays song)...I should tell you, the one major piece of poetic license in that song; I can't really imagine my wife ever punching any windows out anywhere, ever. But I felt the song needed something to punch it up..."

    General Commentthe relationship was at its worst, and there was obviously tension and anger with the metaphors and verbs. but, eventually, like an old song, their relationship was revived and they were rising out of the grave of despair and broken hearts. i.e. there will be no divorce.

    and this is such a god damn good song.
