Thank you for this song 10,000 Maniacs!
I've always been a big fan of Natalie Merchant's voice, especially when she was with 10,000 Maniacs. The song Like The Weather always struck a chord with me as I associated it to how I felt when going through depression. I heard it tonight for the first time in awhile and in light of my diagnois, it had a whole new meaning. I looked up the lyrics for you to read below and here's the link for their live performance of it on MTV Unplugged. I'd be curious so hear from anyone who feels an affinity to this song as I do. Like The Weather by 10,000 Maniacs Color of the sky as far as I can see is coal grey. Lift my head from the pillow and then fall again. Shiver in my bones, just thinking about the weather. Quiver in my lip as if I might cry. Well by the force of will my lungs are filled and so I breathe. Lately it seems this big bed is where I never leave. Shiver in my bones, just thinking about the weather. A quiver in my voice as I cry, What a cold and a rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away? Hear the sound of a noon bell chime. Well I'm far behind. You've put in 'bout half a day while here I lie With a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather. A quiver in my voice as if I might cry, What a cold and rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away? Do I need someone here to scold me or do I need someone who'll grab and pull me out of four poster dull torpor pulling downward. For it is such a long time since my better days. I say my prayers nightly this will pass away. The color of the sky is grey as I can see through the blinds. Lift my head from the pillow and then fall again Shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather. A quiver in my voice as if I might cry, A cold and a rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away? A cold and a rainy day I shiver, quiver, and try to wake. (From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/0-9/10000-maniacs-lyrics/like-the-weather-lyrics.html)
