Hold On (Take my hand, I'm standing right here) - Tom Waits

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking that President Trump needs some new ammunition for his tweets, does anyone know how I can contact him?

Like for example, the Jewish people have always had a penchant for colorful cursing, and properly applied by POTUS in tweets, such as these could liven up discussion in so many ways.

May your wife eat matza in bed and may you roll
in the crumbs 

May all your teeth
fall out except one which should remain
for a toothache 

May you grow like an
onion with your head in the ground and
your feet in the air 

May you have a good
long sleep and may your dreams be only
of your troubles

May you be the proof that man can endure

May God call the tune and may your enemies play
the music.

They could be used as distractions to turn the national tide of discussion, or Qanon-like, to hint at what's around the corner.

(Bob Dylan shared those with Tom Waits back in the days when the two were communicating their thoughts by cassette tapes sent through the mail, so no, I haven't wandered far off topic in this off topic thread as it may seem if anyone should ever read these ramblings.)

Well, places to go, things to do. But one more song by Tom Waits.

("She" in this song is "them" here at the COP forum.)


She took all my money
And my best friend
You know the story
Here it comes again
I have no pride
I have no shame
You gotta make it rain
Make it rain

Since you're gone
Deep inside it hurts
I'm just another sad guest
On this dark earth

I want to believe
In the mercy of the world again
Make it rain, make it rain

The night's too quiet
Stretched out alone
I need the whip of thunder
And the wind's dark moan

I'm not Abel, I'm just Cain
Open up the heavens
Make it rain

I'm close to heaven
Crushed at the gate
They sharpen their knives
On my mistakes

What she done, you can't give it a name
You gotta make it rain
Make it rain, yeah!

Without her love
Without your kiss
Hell can't burn me
More than this
I'm burning with all this pain
Put out the fire
Make it rain

I'm born to trouble
I'm born to fate
Inside a promise
I can't escape
It's the same old world
But nothing looks the same
Make it rain, make it rain

Got to make it rain
Make it rain
You got to make it rain
Got to make it rain
You got to...

I stand alone here
I stand alone here
Sing it...
Make it rain
Make it rain ...

You can never hold back spring
You can be sure that I will never
Stop believing
The blushing rose will climb
Spring ahead or fall behind
Winter dreams the same dream
Every time
