The Weather, Interpol & Prozac in the water supply

You know how I was talking about the weather this morning? At the risk of enhancing my English-ness by talking about nothing else.... it rained solidly all night and until about 3pm this afternoon. The river wasn't too high, but the streets were awash with water. Then the sun came out and the temperature started to rise. By the time I went out for my run this evening at about 19:30, it was bloody tropical and was so humid I think I melted about halfway round (and this run was a real bonus too - my gym kit was in the car because of the crappy weather, but I really love to get some exercise outdoors at this time of the year. The gym is for when it's all dark and miserable).

Whilst running, I was listening to the first Interpol album. I may have mentioned before, but I'm something of a song lyrics man - it's often the lyrics that turn me onto a new band, and is probably one of the reasons why I love bands like The Smiths and Manic Street Preachers... all wordy. Anyway. Had the Ipod plugged in had a good listen to "Turn on the Bright Lights"



Obstacle 2 goes something like this:



I'm gonna pull you in close gonna wrap you up tight

gonna play with the braids that you came here with tonight

I'm gonna hold your face and toast the snow that fell

because friends don't waste wine when there's words to sell



i feel like love is in the kitchen with a culinary eye

I think he's making something special and I'm smart enough to try

if you don't trust yourself for at least one minute each day

well you should trust in this girl cause loving is coming our way



if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way

if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way



I'll stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days

(take my love in these small doses)

It takes a long time just to get this all straight

(take my love in these small doses)

I'll showcase on route 7 when i find the right place

(take my love in these small doses)

It takes a long time just to get this all straight

(take my love in these small doses)

in my mind this is my free time



because friends don't waste wine when there's words to sell

if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way

if you can fix me up girl you'll go a long way



I'll stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days

(take my love in these small doses)

I've spent a long time corresponding in my own way

(take my love in these small doses)

I'll showcase on route 7 when I find the right place

(take my love in these small doses)

It takes a long time just to get this all straight

(take my love in these small doses)

in my mind this is my free time

to break it all away

spend it all today

spend it all today

it took time then I found you

it took time then I found you



Fantastic song, and interesting lyrics... but what does it mean?



"Stella was a diver and she was always down" is about oral sex though, right?

I reckon the drinking water tastes funny at the moment. We use a Brita filter which we keep in the fridge, but I still think the water is tasting a bit odd.



I'd say it was the Prozac, only I'm such a miserable bastard....
