Through The Window

Through the Window

The clouds that gathered turned to rain
The candles on your sill burned out
The weather on your face
Turned to match the mood outside

Reading through poems that you saved
That make the gloomy hours make sense
Or do they lose their power
With the yellowing of age

I saw you suffering
Through a foggy window in the rain
When you thought no one was watching, yeah
Going through your memories
Like so many prisons to escape
And become someone else
With another face
And another name
No more suffering

You sold the best of yourself out
On a chain of grey and white lies
One syllable at a time
You should have made them pay
A higher price

I saw you suffering
Through the cracked and dirty window pane
I was ashamed that I was watching, yeah
Going through your imagination
Looking for a life you could create
And become somebody else, yeah
With another face
With another name
No more suffering

I wish that I could find a seed
And plant a tree that grows so high
So that I could climb
And harvest the ripe stars
For you and I to drink
And spit the ashes from our mouths
And put the grey back in the clouds
And send them packing with our bags
Of old regrets and sorrows
‘Cause they don’t do a thing but drag us down
So far down
The past is like a braided rope
Each moment tightly coiled inside

I saw you suffering
Through the yellow window of a train
With everybody watching, yeah
Too tired for imagining
That you could ever love somebody else
From somewhere far away
From another time
And another place
With another life
And another face
And another name
And another name
No more suffering.

Through The Window‘ ~Chris Cornell~

This is such a brutally sad song, but I’m not sharing it with you because I’m sad, which is a good thing. Usually I share a song that matches my feelings of the moment, but today….although I’m not laughing out loud happy, I’m definitely not in the depths of depression, either. If anything, I’m just a little melancholy…..the late summer cloud and showers are here today and the trees are starting to change colour. I love autumn…..this is just too early, but once the air feels like fall there’s no going back. There’s been a risk of frost on quite a few mornings so far but luckily no frost yet, but knowing this part of the world, it probably won’t be long in coming. But it’s a perfect day to make a big pot of coffee and curl up with a good book.

I love the ‘Malena Heels’ from *UTOPIA@Design**! They’re HUD driven with 12 colours, 16 preset colour combinations, 5 levels of glossiness, and 6 areas to customize independently. They fit the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh feet and are available at the current round of ~uber~, which runs until September 22.

I’ve paired the shoes with the ‘Kristy Capris’ and ‘Luma Tube Top’ from *Just Because*.

I’m at the beautiful Summer Edge, in my favourite place to pass the time, for this shot. Join the group to rezz…’s well worth the 220L$ fee! 😀
