ah the it comes again

"and i hold you close in the back of my mind,
feels so good, but damn it makes me hurt,
and i'm too scared to know to how i feel about you now;
la cienega just smiles...'see ya around'.

and i hold you close in the back of my mind,
and raise my glass, 'cause either way i'm dead.
neither of you really help me to sleep anymore,
one breaks my body, and the other breaks my soul;
la cienega just smiles as it waves goodbye."

my favorite ryan song without exception, though there are many others i love. this song snuck inside of me and found a little place in my heart to reside always. it is this corner that holds songs that never lose their significance to me, and where i go when i need solace and the kind of soul-silence that music provides.

strange, this song just resonates more and more with each and every listen.

i do hope he plays this tonight.

la cienega just smiled

  1. I only recently rediscovered Heartbreaker, with my vintage discman, and when the cd comes to "La Cienega Just Smiled" it always seems to bring memories of you and how much you love that song.

    Great song from an even more amazing album.

    Have fun tonight.
