It's Raining Today (again)

With the forecast of the past few and next days, Scott Walker's words are once again very fitting:

It's raining today

and I'm just about to forget the train window girl

That wonderful day we met

She smiles through the smoke from my cigarette
It's raining today
But once there was summer and you And dark little rooms
And sleep in late afternoons

Those moments descend on my windowpane

I've hung around here too long
Listenin' to the old landlady's hard-luck stories
You out of me me out of you

We go like lovers
To replace the empty space
Repeat our dreams to someone new
It's raining today

And I watch the cellophane streets

No hang-ups for me
'Cause hang-ups need company
The street corner girl's a cold trembling leaf
It's raining today
It's raining today

Nothin' beats a little Scott, the perfect tea and favorite cat on a wet rainy day. Scott was the original indoor boy, the mod Sinatra, that made being blue so rosy.

Though actually tonight it's just cold and clear.
