like the weather lyrics – 10000 maniacs

like the weather

color of the sky as far as i can see is coal grey.
lift my head from the pillow and then fall again.
shiver in my bones, just thinking about the weather.
quiver in my lip as if i might cry.

well by the force of will my lungs are filled and so i breathe.
lately it seems this big bed is where i never leave.
shiver in my bones, just thinking about the weather.
a quiver in my voice as i cry,

what a cold and a rainy day.
where on earth is the sun hid away?

hear the sound of a noon bell chime.
well i’m far behind.
you’ve put in ’bout half a day
while here i lie
with a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather.
a quiver in my voice as if i might cry,

what a cold and rainy day.
where on earth is the sun hid away?

do i need someone here to scold me
or do i need someone who’ll grab and pull me out of four poster dull torpor pulling downward.
for it is such a long time since my better days.
i say my prayers nightly this will p*ss away.

the color of the sky is grey as i can see through the blinds.
lift my head from the pillow and then fall again
shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather.
a quiver in my voice as if i might cry,

a cold and a rainy day.
where on earth is the sun hid away?
a cold and a rainy day i shiver, quiver, and try to wake.
