I’m blue | The waiting gameTuesday, January 27, 2015
Listen up, here's a story about a little guy who lives in a blue world.
And all day and all night everything he just sees is just blue like him, inside and outside.
Blue his house with a blue little window and a blue corvette and everything is just blue for him and himself and everybody around, 'cause he ain't got nobody to listen to.
You hear about the January blues all the time in winter; it seems to be socially acceptable to share gloomy feelings at this time of year. Even the jolliest of people can get sucked into the abyss of mid winter.
The endless hours of darkness stretch on; waking up in pitch black, driving home on dark roads and feeling like it's constantly time to hibernate.
The decay of leaves and weeds, bare branches and mud.
The biting cold, the wind that chills you to the bone, the ice, the snow, the hail.
The comedown after the Christmas and new year celebrations.
I have a blue house with a blue window. Blue is the colour of all that I wear. Blue are the streets nd all the trees are too. I have a girlfriend and she is so blue. Blue are the people here that walk around. Blue like my corvette, it's in and outside. Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.
You know what? It's going to get better. January is always a tough slog but spring is on it's way, there are hints and whispers of better times ahead, let's just play the waiting game.
Lyrics from Eiffel 65, if you aren't familiar with the track, firstly, WHY? And secondly, go give it a listen.
