Brown-eyed Stare

Lyrics from a year ago April

Just stumbled upon some stuff on my pen drive, from a year ago April -
just before I came out to Seattle. Wow. Memories, still fresh in my
head, bring back the grief of things (and people) lost... and some deep
connections that are as fresh now as they were when they started.
Just.... wow.

And of course, it's my luck to have such intensity on a Monday - makes
my head scream to even open that box. Maybe someday I'll learn to leave
well enough alone, to leave the memories lying there, in the box where I
stored them, and not take them out, so as not to dredge up the emotions
that're with it. Good and bad - the intensity can be almost painful,
but still I keep going back. Yeah... someday. Sure. Right.

(If none of this makes any sense, don't worry. It makes sense to me,
and that's pretty much all that matters, for this entry.)


When you're done with being beautiful and young,
When that course is run, then come to me. -- BNL

More lyrics

It's just those Rainy Days,
Spend your lifetime trying to wash away
Until the sun comes out and shines again,
Smile for me, smile for me.
All of those Rainy Days
Spend your lifetime trying to wash away,
Until the sun shines and I see your face,
Smile at me, smile at me.

We're always living so crazy and sexy and cool, and we begin to love it
Watching all of the heartache and pain of the world, and thinking
nothing of it.
Baby, I got a love for you, and I know that you got me, baby.
But every time the sun shines bright, it gets so cloudy.

It's just those Rainy Days,
Spend your lifetime trying to wash away
Until the sun comes out and shines again,
Smile for me, smile for me.
All of those Rainy Days
Spend your lifetime trying to wash away,
Until the sun shines and I see your face,
Smile at me, smile at me.
...

And for those who need love, spread love.
And for those who can't take it, stand up.
Baby, we're gonna make it.
In the words of Marvin Gaye: War is not the answer.

-- Mary J. Blige w/ Ja Rule, "Rainy Days"
