Entry: words words words Wednesday, October 17, 2007



coming home from a wonderful day at rock creek (which was dry as a bone and so so sad to see) i was listening to camper van beethoven and this song came on and for some reason i just thought "today, i'm putting this song on my blog!!"  i haven't written much lately.  been all busy being back in tennessee again, meeting new people, hiking, spending time with family.  so i'm just sharing words today, mine or someone else's...it's all good.

i came home and watched oprah, bill cosby was on and that drew me right in.  he had some pretty interesting things to say about the sad state our children are in, well, he was specifically talking about minorities, but it spoke to an awful lot more than that.  one thing he said (and he was real clear that it wasn't something he had come up with) was "hurt people, hurt people"...so i wanted to pass that on.  it reminds me of this one:

real eyes realize real lies

okay, back to my song.

Camper Van Beethoven - "Seven Languages"
I played this song for my love
But she said to me
"it has no meaning at all."
We walked across the park
And I said a word
And we went to the bar
For no reason at all
Well up in the sky
Well I saw a cloud
And I thought that it looked like something
But on second thought not

And I would come to visit you
But I canít find my car keys
And I canít remember where you live
And if I had just a little time
I could speak seven languages
I could walk on water

A friend calls me on the phone
And tells me a joke
Well I think that I laugh
But I donít remember at all
I woke up with a word in my head
And as far as I know
It has no meaning at all
Well up in the sky
Well I saw a cloud
And I thought it looked like a face
But on second thought not

And I would come to visit you
But I canít find my car keys
And I canít think of right words to say
And if I had just a little time
I could speak seven languages
I could walk on water

at the time, when i was listening to it and driving, it seemed like it was saying so much.  like i related to something in it and now, well, i just can't remember.
