    heard this song in 1994 when I was 11 on a summer holiday with my parents, recorded on a tape cassette. It has stayed with me ever since. 37 years old today and celebrating my birthday in lockdown alone, listening to this song every-time like it is the first time I'm hearing it. :)

    I was on a road trip with my best friend and I popped this CD in and apologized saying I would only play a song or two. That's when I found out that it was her favorite album.
    Driving and crying and singing at strangers in other cars is one of my best memories.

      Aren't memories the best thing going. This isn't a big hard me going to jail story but I was locked up and that was the one thing I had that they couldn't take away from me, my memories and music brings them out in spades, love them

    There's a storm outside
    And the gap between crack and thunder
    Crack and thunder
    Is closing in
    Is closing in
    The rain floods gutters
    And makes a great sound on concrete
    On a flat roof, there's a boy
    Leaning against a wall of rain
    Aerial held high
    Calling "Come on thunder
    Come on thunder!"
    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul
    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul
    It's a monsoon
    And the rain lifts lids off cars
    Spinning buses like toys
    Stripping them to chrome
    Across the bay, the waves are something else
    Picking up fishing boats and spewing them on the shore
    The boy's hit
    Lit up against the sky
    Like a sign
    Like a neon sign
    Then he crumples
    Drops into the gutter
    Cut strings
    Legs twitching
    The flood swells his clothes
    Delivers him on
    Delivers him on
    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul
    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul
    There's four new colors in the rainbow
    An old man's taking Polaroids
    But all he catches
    Is endless rain
    Endless rain
    Endless rain
    Endless rain
    He says, "Listen!"
    Takes my head
    Puts my ear to his
    And I swear I can hear the sea
    Sometimes (sometimes), I look in your eyes, I can see your soul
    (I can reach your soul)
    Sometimes (sometimes), I look in your eyes, I can see your soul
    (I can touch your soul)
    Sometimes, I look in your eyes, I can see your soul
    (I can hear your soul)
    Sometimes (sometimes), I look in your eyes, I can see your soul
    Sometimes, I look in your eyes, I can see your soul

    This song makes my heart sing when I hear it but when I hear it live and I get to sing along with Tim and thousands of others it makes my heart soar!
    Pure, beautiful, wonderful music from one of the bands who have become the soundtrack to my life.

    There was quite a bit of emotion, artistry, and soul that was lost when alternative was a mainstream desire. Those elements were consumed by the big markets and you rarely see them again. For a minute, in the 1990's we had free reign into incredible artists.

    It's quite funny to realize that this epic has only 6 to 7 million views instead of some crap with 523 par example million views. The sanity on the planet is about 6 to 10 milion maybe. :-)
