Nothing Lasts Forever…

…Even Cold November Rain!

Its nearly the end of a wet and miserable November and as I write this it is 2.30 in the morning and I am sitting awake with tooth ache!

Now if you are not aware of the significance of tooth ache at 2.30 let me break it down for you (two thirty or tooth hurty – same thing innit – and you thought I was a posh bloke didnt ya 😛 )

Moose and tooth ache do not really combine well! In fact it must be around 8 years since I last saw a dentist, and was about 12 years prior to that!

Hopefully just the result of stress I have been under recently. Queen Lilybet is still unwell but touch wood so far tonight she has not woke up coughing and being sick so after 4 weeks I pray she is finally on the mend and go back to nursery tomorrow.

The past few nights she has been awake until 3-4 am, in fact at 2 am Friday night I was in the middle of a bubble wrap war with my 3 year old, and to think Sheryl calls me childish!

Saturday night saw me hit a bit of a mini crisis when I was so down I decided only Jack Daniels could help but thankfully a few choice words of support were said on twitter and Facebook and I saw the light! I also had a wonderful telephone call with Teresa in Texas for 10 mins that filled me with joy! Teresa you are my angel!

Besides that little blip I am feeling positive today, even through the ache in my mouth. A little physical pain pails into significance compares to mental anguish believe me!

And so back to November rain…

I fricking love this song and the epic 9 minute video that goes with it!

As always the lyrics are open to interpretation but as far as I am aware the song was written by Axl Rose about his marriage. Some of the words though can fit with how I feel about myself at times and about depression.

An example is as follows

“So never mind the darkness we still can find a way

Nothin’ lasts forever even cold November rain”

we all know the darkness is a feeling common with depression

enjoy the video below and the fan-bloody-tastic guitar solo by Slash

the lyrics are as follows

When I look into your eyes I can see a love restrained

But darlin’ when I hold you, don’t you know I feel the same?yeah

Nothin’ lasts forever and we both know hearts can change

And it’s hard to hold a candle in the cold November rain
We’ve been through this such a long long time

Just tryin’ to kill the pain, ooh yeah

But lovers always come and lovers always go

An’ no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today, walking away
And if we take the time to lay it on the line

I could rest my head just knowin’ that you were mine, all mine

So if you want to love me then darlin’ don’t refrain

Or I’ll just end up walkin’ in the cold November rain

Do you need some time on your own?

Do you need some time all alone?

Everybody needs some time on their own

Don’t you know you need some time all alone?

I know it’s hard to keep an open heart

When even friends seem out to harm you

But if you could heal the broken heart

Wouldn’t time be out to charm you?

Sometimes I need some time on my own

Sometimes I need some time all alone

Everybody needs some time on their own

Don’t you know you need some time all alone

And when your fears subside and shadows still remain, oh yeah

I know that you can love me when there’s no one left to blame

So never mind the darkness we still can find a way

Nothin’ lasts forever even cold November rain

Don’t ya think that you need somebody?

Don’t ya think that you need someone?

Everybody needs somebody

You’re not the only one, you’re not the only one

Don’t ya think that you need somebody?

Don’t ya think that you need someone?

Everybody needs somebody

You’re not the only one, you’re not the only one

Don’t ya think that you need somebody?

Don’t ya think that you need someone?

Everybody needs somebody

You’re not the only one, you’re not the only one

Don’t ya think that you need somebody?

Don’t ya think that you need someone?

Everybody needs somebody

=========================

A classic!
