What Ever and Ever. Amen.

I've been a long time fan of Ben Folds, (in fact I think his CD was one of the first I ever bought) but more recently this particular song has taken on a little more meaning in my life. I dunno who put the lame music video together, but listen to the music and words rather than watch.


Evaporated
What I've kept with me

And what I've thrown away
And where the hell Ive ended up
On this glary, random day
Were the things I really cared about
Just left along the way
For being to pent up and proud

Woke up way too late
Feeling hung over and old
And the sun was shining bright
And I walked barefoot
Down the road
Started thinking about
My old man
It seems that all men
Wanna get into a car and go
Anywhere

Chorus
Here I stand - sad and free
I cant cry and I cant see
What Ive done
God. . .what have I done

Don't you know I'm numb, man
No I cant feel a thing at all
cause its all smiles and business
These days
And I'm indifferent to the loss
Ive faith that there's a soul somewhere
Who's leading me around
I wonder if she knows
Which way is down. . .

Chorus

I poured my heart out
I poured my heart out
It evaporated. . .see?

Blind man on a canyons edge
Of a panoramic scene
Or maybe I'm a kite
That's flying high and random
Dangling a string
Or slumped over in a vacant room
Head on a strangers knee
I'm sure back home
They think I've lost my mind.

Oh gosh. I love Ben Folds to death. He seriously writes the best music. I've got 2 of his CDs.

The song you've got on there is a great one. I tend to find I listen to it when I'm a bit depressed though - hope things aren't going too badly. Remember to look for the cloud's silver lining.
