The Week Ends, The Weekend Begins: Blind Melon – No Rain

Another one of those videos that I used to love as a kid, and still do to this day even if I don’t really care for Blind Melon much anymore. So I guess the point of the video is to keep doing what you love doing no matter how many people don’t understand it, laugh at you or whatever because in time you will find more people like yourself. But I assume the song is actually about heroin.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
I like watchin’ the puddles gather rain.
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it’s not sane.
It’s not sane.
I just want someone to say to me, oh,
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today.
So stay with me and I’ll have it made.
And I don’t understand why sleep all day
And I start to complain that there’s no rain.
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake,
And it rips my life away but it’s a great escape.
Escape, escape, escape.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
Ya don’t like my point of view,
Ya think that I’m insane.
It’s not sane, it’s not sane.

I just want someone to say to me, oh, oh, oh
I’ll always be there when you wake, yeah.
Ya know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today.
I really wanna really gonna have it made.
Oh. Oh. Oh.
