about

"When love is not madness, it is not love."  ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Mixed to be played LOUD

Not necessarily a Valentine, this second installment in the Monthly Journal series is a short song for a short month. February began with a burst of incessant glass-rattling wind storms, this had yet to let up as I finished recording. Emotional situations among myself and my friends seemed strangely synchronous to this, challenged by uncertainties, somewhat unhinged. Not an easy start to the year so far. My response: lets rock.

lyrics

February February whatchya doin to me?
Everybody's being graded on their popularity
In the cathedral of my heart the stained glass is on fire
Its the closest thing I've come to a religious fervor

And the water in the shower is a-talkin aloud
Sayin' boy you are a-hopeless you should go back to bed
You can wash and you can scrub until you turn bright red
But you'll still be dirty in the head

February February whatchya doin to me?
I tried to jump the river but was sucked out to sea
I woke up on the shore with my suit all wrinkled
Between Dick Van Dyke and Rip Van Winkle

I used to have the patience to draw a whole tree
But now I'm lucky to get through a branch or three
And I've been howlin' at the moon again like some kind of loon
Come on springtime you couldn't spring too soon!
