it's like thunder, like lightning

Your song for the day.

NoMeansNo - Real Love

Real love is scary
You try to hide when it looks for you
You never know what it will do
Not real love
Not real love

Real love is a long stone bed, he said
His face a mask of indifference
And it don't care about me or you
Not real love
Not real love

Real love on a sunny day
Is a crow on a telephone pole
With something to say
And you feel like someone
Has just walked on your grave
That's real love
That's real love

The glory of love
The glory of love
That precious rain
That falls from above
First a gentle murmur
That calls from the heart
And then a great wind
That will blow you apart
That's real love
That's real love

Like a ghost it will pass right through you
A spirit that lives on
When you are through
And there is nothing that you can do
The wind in the trees
The smell of wet leaves
The rumble of a passing truck
A streak of blood
Please forgive me for what I've done to you
And lord forgive me for what I'm going to do
In the name of...

Real love is scary
You try to hide when it looks for you
You never know what it will do
And it don't care about me or you
And there is nothing you can do about
Real love

Anyway, that's what I heard a crow say
But who cares what a crow say anyway?
Especially about something, something
Something so strictly personal

(Real love)
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it? That wind on your face
You can get down on your knees and pray
But nothing that you do or say
Will make it go away
(Real love)
It's like thunder, like lightning
The way you love me
The way you love me
The way you love me
It's frightening

NoMeansNo - Real Love (mp3)

It's a long song, a hard song to get through if this kind of thing doesn't grab you.

It's not just a song; it's more like a tidal wave of dark water and debris and pieces of your heart and streaks of light that crashes down and around you. It leaves you breathless and gasping and when the wave departs, you're left on the ground soaked in a deeper understanding. If you feel the wave and understand it and let it drag you under with it, it kicks you hard. And sometimes a kick is just what you need.

It's like thunder, like lightning
The way you love me
The way you love me
The way you love me
It's frightening
