Silent Bob all i want is something good
it gets harder every time
she is leaving here tonight
take a breath
take your time
Spread your wings and rise

Make a mark upon the wall
Paint your face and pass the time
Close your eyes and she ascends
Hold your breath and ease your mind
Forty Thousand Times
Time fades into the night

They descend and then they climb
Feathers Falling through the the night
Have you seen Ohio rise?
It has been four days and nights

All I was is something fine
It gets harder every time
she is sleeping far away
take a breath
take your time
spread your wings and rise
rise into the black ohio skies
Silent Bob My friend assures me, "It's all or nothing"
I am not worried. I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me, "For one time only make an except." I am not worried.

Wrap her up in a package of lies
Send her off to a coconut island
I am not worried I am not overly concerned
With the status of my emotions
"Oh" she says "You're changing"
But we're always changing.

It does not bother me to say this isn't love
Bceause if you don't want to talk about it then it isn't love.
And I guess I'm going to have to live with that
But i'm sure there's something in a shade of grey
Something in between, And i can always change my name if thats what you mean

My friend assures me "Its all or nothing"
But i am not really worried
I am not overly concerned
You try to tell yourself the things you try to tell yourself
to make yourself forget
I am not worried
"If it's love" she said "Then we're gonna have to think about the consequences"
She can't stop shaking and i can't stop touching her and...

This time when kindness falls like rain it washes her away and Anna Begins to change her mind

"These seconds when i'm shaking leave me shuddering for days" she says And i'm not ready for this sort of thing

But im not going to break
and im not going to worry about it anymore
and im not going to bend and im not oging to break and im not going to worry about it anymore
It seems like i should say, "As long as this is love..." but it's not all that easy so maybe i should
snap her up in a butterfly net
Pin her down on a photograph album
I am not worried
I've done this sort of thing before
But then I start to think abotu the consequences
Because I don't get no sleep in a quiet room and...

The time when kindness feels like rain
It washes me away and
Anna begins to change my mind
and everytime she sneezes i believe its love and OH lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing

She's talking in her sleep
its keeping me awake and anna begins to toss and turn
and every word is just nonsense but i understand and oh lord, im not ready for this sort of thing
her kindness bangs a gong
its moving me along and anna begins to fade away
its chasing me away she disappears and oh lord i'm not ready for this sort of thing.
Silent Bob She comes to me at night when I'm sleeping
She comes to me when I'm alone
She comes to me She holds my head when I'm crying
She comes to me She shuts my eyes
She brings me home

But I'm not sleeping anymore

She tells me when you look at me She tells me when you're LYING
She tells me when you talk about me She lays me on the floor
She tells me when you're whispering She lies beside me...naked
She tells me when you laugh at me and she locks all the doors.

But I'm not sleeping anymore
1-2-3-4-5-6-7 a.m.
All alone again
But i've been through all this shit before
spend my nights in self-defense
Cry about my innoncence
But i ain't all that innocent anymore

I see her on the TV I see her in the movies
I see her in these animals that dance beside my bed
I'll follow you down baby Down into this valley
I'll follow you down baby But i won't come up again
But i'm not sleeping anymore
silentbob Mrs. Potters Lullaby, Colorblind, 4 Days, Kid things Connection. Adam Duritz: I wrote the chorus for Mrs. Potters Lullaby after seeing a movie. I was having my usual actress problem/infatuation kind of thing. And I came home, and everybody was working, and I went into the piano room in the studio and started writing. I came up with the chorus music and the first chorus. And then I stopped and said to myself, "How can I write a whole song about someone I don't even know? It's not gonna go anywhere, it's a total dead end. It's automatically trite and false." But I was enthralled with it. I wondered what else I could do. Well, if you wanted to meet someone you didn't know, you'd have to introduce yourself. And so I thought I'd write a song about everything that had been running through my head the past few months. All the ways I've been feeling and what my life looks like and all the possibilities, and . . . all the sort of romance flying around my head right now. And I centered it all around the idea of talking to someone up on the movie screen. I ended up writing the song and played it for a friend of mine. He happened to know a friend of this actress and told her about it And one day, it was like a Monday, and we were gonna record "Mrs. Potter" that night, and I get a phone call from my friend asking me if I'd like to have dinner with her and her friend that night. "She wants to meet you and is totally blown away by the whole song thing, but she wants to meet you in a comfortable situation." So the four of us go to dinner that night and it was bizarre. We totally hit it off; she is a really great girl. And she says to me, "So what's up with this song?" I said, "Here's a tape of just me doing the song at the piano, but if you really want to hear it though, we're about to go record it and it's only about a half mile from here." 'Cause I had to have dinner near there so I can get back to work. As soon as I get back from dinner we're gonna start this. And so her and her friend and my buddy and I all walked into the studio, and I said to everybody, "Hey, this is Mrs. Potter! We're gonna record this song now." And they all looked at me like I was crazy because they didn't know their parts, and I told them all to shut up and we began. And basically everybody got in the room together and we played it once through, first time we'd ever done it as a band. And I finished singing it and I went and talked to Dennis and I said, "Where's _____?" "She's outside crying." She told me, "This is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. But I don't want to listen out here. Can I come in the piano room with you? I feel weird sitting out here in front of these people." So she came in the room with me and we proceeded to play that, and it was awesome; everyone was playing out of the top of their skulls. And then she left a couple of days later to go out of town, and I wrote "Colorblind" at home, thinking about how badly I wanted to be pulled out of myself by somebody. Thinking that maybe I was ready for something different now. And then, I hadn't heard from her in like four days, and so I wrote "Four Days" about feeling badly, wanting something better to happen, and trying to keep cool about it and not fuck it up. And finally she did call and we had this great long talk and I felt like I was 16. And I said to her, "Doesn't this remind you of those phone conversations you had when you were 16 and you are so excited and on your bed talking to somebody?" And I was in the middle of working on a song and I told the band that I had this song, and I knew how it was gonna sound and I had everything in place in my head, and I went under the piano and I wrote "Kid Things," hidden at the end of the album, which was about, just that. And that was the last song I wrote for the album. And a little while later we were working on "Mrs. Potter's" and it sounded like shit. And by this time I was dating her. But then "Mrs. Potter's" just stunk; all the overdubs we'd done and everything, it was just bad. And I was over her house one day, and she was playing a tape of it, and I thought it was awesome. When I asked her where she'd gotten it, she told me that the first night she came by, Dennis had given her a tape as she was leaving of one take that we had done that evening. I pull it out and check it out and it was take four. I played it for everyone and it blew them away, all of us forgetting we had recorded it. We'd been fucking with the sound of it in dumb ways, basically overthinking the song. And we just matched the master with this little cassette and pulled some overdubs from other tracks, and Dan laid the harmonies on it and it was basically take four! 000618

Zed Got all of their cds - enjoy them all.

I had the same decision to make - chilli peppers or counting crows (I got them both to cheer me up for comuting to London every day to work!)

I'm going to see them in January! They aren't very popular in England, so it'll only be a few people there!

Also they are staying in the hotel my mate works in so I'm going to get their autographs!

How cool?
silentbob tell them bobby says hi just to see what they'll say 021113

silentbob He put his hand on my shoulder and told me Arlen fucking loved the counting crows and they went to go see them and he had all their cds and wanted them all autographed, and adam said some smartass thing, because thats how normal people react when someone hands them a handful of cds and said, "Write your name on these."
and then he told me that when it was his turn to talk to adam he was just like, "Hey man i really liked your show up there." and adam was like, "thanks man, that means a lot to me."
what's it to you?
who go
