Anyways . . . I always thought I knew this song like the back of my hand. For while I hadn't thought about it for years and years until a few weeks ago, I used to listen to it often. Blow, baby. And so, as I couldn't get the song off my mind, I decided to build a post around it. And even thoughI felt I knew the song backward and forward, I checked lyric sites none-the-less.
And now, I'm thrown.
The first stanza after the chorus: When you sigh, weak am I, A butterfly caught up
in a hurricane, hurricane. Lucky me, umbrella free. Suddenly I'm caught up in your summer rain
Those lyrics are in my bones. I've listened to the song again and again and again in the past several weeks and that is what I hear.
Or is it that I have always believed those lyrics to be true and refuse to hear it any other way?
Most of the lyric sites have the lyrics to that stanza as follows:
Windy sigh, weaken my Butterfly caught up in a hurricane, hurricane
Lucky me, I'm better free, Suddenly I'm caught up in your somber rain
I mean, I listen to the song and try to hear those lyrics....but, I can't. In my mind it is fairly obvious what he's singing and it anything about being better free (WTF?) or somber rains.. idiotic. Really.
So, I don't trust the site. I trust what I hear/d. It is in my bones.
PS. Good golly I miss albums and liner notes with song lyrics.
