Retired my ass. So glad he’s still kickin’
Rain yet again. The rain was bad rain, hence “dirty rain.” I keep saying this in my other posts (many of them are also about his other songs): rain means change, a turning point because rain is associated with spring and the renewal of life.
We see dirty rain because
streets were drowning waters raining
while the ruins washed ashore
now I’m here just looking through the rubble
tryin to find out who we were
the dirty, messy business of breaking up with someone or something:
windows broken and smoke’s escaping
the books scattered across the floor
and the church bells ringing through the silence
your coat was filled with bullet holes
The chorus seems to be this. I had a bit of trouble figuring out what the words were. This seems to sound good though
And soooo may the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name
Soooo may the needle move the record around
Till the walls cave in
While you and I were out there dancin’ in the dirty rain
–thanks for Ashley’s edits to what I had before
Coming to terms? It’d be really cool if this song isn’t actually about a girl. Maybe it’s about how he seems to have mellowed out now.
If you want the full lyrics from what I’ve made out of the song, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
