Sugar Mice

(Photo taken Sept'2007 by Sailor Girl)

«I was flicking through the channels on the TV, on a Sunday in Milwaukee in the rain. Trying to piece together conversations, trying to find out where to lay the blame. But when it comes right down to it there's no use trying to pretend, for when it gets right down to it there's no one here that's left to blame. Blame it on me, you can blame it on me, we're just sugar mice in the rain... I heard Sinatra calling me through the floorboards, where you pay a quarter for a partnership in rhyme, to the jukebox crying in the corner, while the waitress is counting out the time... For when it comes right down to it there's no use trying to pretend... For when it gets right down to it there's no one really left to blame... Blame it on me, you can blame it on me, we're just sugar mice in the rain...

'Cos I know what I feel, know what I want, I know what I am! «Daddy took a rain check»! 'Cos I know what I want, know what I feel. I know what I need! «Daddy took a rain check», your daddy took a rain check... Ain't no one in here that's left to blame but me... Blame it on me, blame it on me...

Well the toughest thing that I ever did was talk to the kids on the phone... When I heard them asking questions, I knew that you were all alone... Can't you understand that the government left me out of work? I just couldn't stand the looks on their faces saying, "What a jerk"... So if you want my address it's number one at the end of the bar... Where I sit with the broken angels clutching at straws and nursing our scars... Blame it on me, blame it on me, Sugar mice in the rain...»

«Sugar Mice», by [Marillion], now playing at Radio Atlântico Azul, the best Lisbon Radio!...

Olivier said...

la lumière est superbe sur ta photo. cela donne envie de partir en croisière
The light is beautiful on your photo. It makes you want to go cruising

sam said...

that is a wonderful photo, the ship looks so huge and bulky, yet the lighting softens it.

Sailor Girl said...

Thanks, Eric S, I was lucky. The sunset gave it a really beautiful colour!

Olivier, that's what I felt... like going on a cruise forever!!!

sam: The ship is really huge. The funny part is that she is called «Silver Shadow», but the sunset turned her into «Golden»! LOL
