LyricsEdit

When I hear the screeching weather vane
In the wild wind and the pissing rain
I know that one of us, I'm not saying who,
Has got rocks in her head
The rain comes through the open window
But you don't think so
I sure do love you
I sure do love you

When I notice that the radio is broken
I see you standing there in the doorway soaking
The water drizzles off of you down to the floor
And I say that I don't want to live in New England anymore
Some flower petals stick to your skin
I grab hold of your hip, and I pull you in

When the building establishes control
When the thunder from the north begins to roll down our way
I know I’ve been right all along
And you start singing that stupid children's song
You think I don't know it
But I just don't feel like singing it
Sure do love you
I sure do love you

Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "This is a song - takes place in California - it was on the first CD - it's about that moment in which you know it's not going to get any better, but you want to prove to somebody exactly how strong you are." -- 1998-02-06 - Cow Haus - Tallahassee, FL
