a song, a place, a time

Ever hear a song that seems to express up whatever yer feelin’ at the time? Today’s musical memory is from Mason Jennings. Read on:

“California”

Don’t you know baby i’m a leading man
I dig down deep when i say i love you
And i can hold my own with the best of them
I guarantee you, you will never see nothing like this again
California, i hope that it wakes you
From all of the darkness
That i couldn’t break through’cause
I’m gonna miss you, i’m gonna miss you
Don’t you know that i did the things i could
I rubbed your back when you were sleeping
But all along baby it was understood
That you were leaving, absolutely
Since the very first day we met
California, i hope that it wakes you
From all of the darkness
That i couldn’t break through’cause
I’m gonna miss you, i’m gonna miss you
Like i miss the ocean
When i go to sleep
Man, it’s gonna break my heart

Well holy crap in a handbag… if you were there, you’d say that song just about explains everything that happened to me in California last winter. Nice to hear a lovesong that doesn’t condemn, judge, or whine… just expresses the way things are. Of course, a nautical reference as well… I strongly reccomend a listen; several albums out there now.
