november rain

Just reached home from work. Today Taekwondo class is at 8 so I have some time to lepak2 at home before I go after Maghrib. Was rushing home from work today to try to out run the rain. In Bangi it was already getting dark but by the time I reached the Mines it was all clear. You see, that's the problem when you have to travel across several "weather zones" to get to work and back. You can never predict the weather! Anyways, the out running the rain bit to an extent I succeeded until it started pouring in front of Zoo Negara. =S Nasib baik that is already near my house. I would never stop under a bridge/flyover. Neither should you. I'd rather be a little wet than risk being run over by an unsuspecting car. Well, anyhow i reached home relatively dry.

Which brings me to the title of the post. Ironic really. It's not November and rain in Malaysia is not really cold. You know how certain songs remind you of an era or certain period in your life? Well, "November rain" reminds me of college and doing my A-Levels. "Sweet Child of mine" was the morning anthem and every morning I could hear the song being played aloud by a college mate before going to class. Ah... those were the days. Anyways, here's the song with the lyrics below. Everybit relevant today as it was back then. Enjoy!

November Rain by Guns N' Roses

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
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

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

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
