ok then back on topic
and this for our dear telephone who chides me about not wanting to open up lol - send her best thoughts por favor as she deals with some health issues back home and most likely won't be around too much in the coming weeks - but she is the rock that holds it all together so we keep our hopes up that all turns out ok
this song just brings me back to the early days of our marriage............when nothing was certain save our love for one another yet also moving through the relationship to having experienced the joys as well as the real struggles - and all the way trying to find confidence in yourself so you can truly love
how we gonna find the eyes to see a brighter day?
struck by the nightblindness but trying to see - yet with such beautiful melodies it carries for me a positive vibe throughout...................
what we gonna do when the money runs out? - living paycheck to paycheck - I wish there was something left to say - my worries about my failing her and us
but we somehow seemed to indeed find a way in those days - with maria who in classic fashion as the rock of our relationship took a job halfway across town when we only had one car and never said a word about taking the bus - in a shitty hot hell hole of a town where no one takes the bus (in texas but not dallas lol).........................just for us to try to make a go of it
but then classic david
I'm sick of all the same old answers
Lost chances, cold stones
Propping mountains up on matchsticks
Dragging baskets full of bones
So screw it be yourself don't worry what "they" have to say with their shallow world of "mountains" with no substance..................
and the last lines of the actual song again reenforced the positive notion of a "brighter day" - and combined with the wonderful melodies and improvisation - just lead you to hope in the end
we first heard the extend outro in luzern and I think it important to note that in the earlier days of that wonderful outro he just got waaaay into the wooooo oooh yeah stuff with no real lyrics per se- just a beautifully magic improv into space - for me giving me the positive energy to carry on and bring our love to a higher level
it wasn't until the greatest hits tour that he started with the verbage into the outro and more tugging at the heart - fast forward the career to more success but it gets complicated with all the travel
where were you when I needed you? me traveling and leaving her alone with a crying baby while I get to live it up laugh it up on the other side of the world.............
so yeah this song for me is about the trials and tribulation of our relationship - and reenforces how I will never ever forget how maria is always taking the bus in this relationship - but in the end it finds the beauty of the song and hope for the future............
ok there lol
