Death in the Blue lake

15°C, some sun + rain


When: the "Black White & Grey" CD, by When arrived today. It sounds better than I remember- probably because I only had a tape of it before. I can see this one getting listened to a lot. Parts of it can go on my mp3 player, as can Samuel Barber’s Adagio. there must be more gems in that tape collection that need replacing on CD/LP!
Get your copy here, or at least listen to a sample: Rer
On the subject of music, Tom Waits lyrics:

  Dead And Lovely

She was a middle class girl
In over her head
She thought she would
Stand up in the deep end
He had a bullet proof smile
He had money to burn
She thought she had the moon
In her pocket…

But now she’s dead
She’s so dead forever
Dead and lovely now

I ‘ve always been told to
Remember this
Don’t let a fool kiss you
Never marry for love
He was hard to impress
He knew everyone’s secrets
He wore her on his arm
Just like jewelry
He never gave but he got
He kept her on a leash
He’s not the kind of wheel
You fall asleep at

But now she’s dead
She’s so dead
Forever dead and
Lovely now

Come closer look deep
You’ve fallen fast
Just like a plane on a
Stormy sea
She made up someone to be
She made up somewhere to
Be from
This is one business in the
World where that’s no
Problem at all
Every thing that is left
They will only plow under
Soon every one you know
Will be gone

But now she’s dead
She’s so dead

Forever dead and
Lovely now

I’ve always been told to
Remember this
Don’t let a kiss fool you
Never marry for love
Now they’re all watching
The sea
What’s lost can never be broken
Her roots were sweet
But they were shallow

But now she’s dead
She’s so dead
Forever dead and
Lovely now
