A dryer winter than we’re used to
Provided ample things to lose
Cold air, cloudy eyes, burning lungs, midnight sky
Alone but unsure why
I tried so hard not to hurt you
But the best laid plans are still just that
And it doesn’t matter where I left you
This empty place is still where we’re at

And I hope you hear me now
I never said I’d never let you down
And I hope you come around
But if you don’t then I won’t make a sound

If I stayed trapped inside your
Makeshift jail cell eyes well,
I might have made a little mess of myself
I might have made it out alive but in poorer health
You still walk these streets with me
To the liquor store to erase everything

And I hope you hear me now
I never said I’d never let you down
And I hope you come around
But if you don’t then I won’t make a sound

And I know that I’ll want you back
But I won’t get away with that
And I know that I’ll want you back
But you don’t know where we fell off at

And I hope you hear me now
I never said I’d never let you down
And I hope you come around
But if you don’t then I won’t make a sound

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
