November rain…

Well, it’s November, and we’ve been getting a lot of rain lately, November rain, they call it! This rock classic is one of my favourite songs and somehow the tone sets the mood for this time of the year…

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

It’s November, just a month left till December – the final month in the year. What have you done…or not done?

We’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain
But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away
If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin’ that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin’ don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walkin’
In the cold November rain

Well, it’s November. Are things now any different from how they were when the year began? Are they getting better…or getting worse? Or are they the same, unchanged?

Do you need some time…on your own
Do you need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time…on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone
I know it’s hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn’t time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time…on my
own Sometimes I need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time…on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

Are there things that you wish could be the different…but as the months rolled past, they have still remained the same?

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
I know that you can love me
When there’s no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don’t ya think that you need somebody
Don’t ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You’re not the only one
You’re not the only one

Yes, you’re not the only one. It’s November, just two months left in the year and life goes on pretty much the same…as it always has.

P.S.:
It’s All Saints’ Day today and tomorrow, November 2nd, is All Souls’ Day. Let us remember and pray for our dearly departed…
