The way the sky looks today...

The way the sky looks today...
Is like flinging your car out of the roundabout onto the motorway
It's pushing your vehicle to 90 miles per hour in the fast lane
Flying past fields of rapeseed that crescendo in billowing waves
The way the sky looks today...
Is like rivers of rain running down window panes
It's the defrost and the windshield wiper blades
Stopping only for gasoline and toffee nut lattes
The way the sky looks today...
Is like old school Ray LaMontagne
It's "Jolene", "Trouble", and "Three More Days"
Singing along innocently and wholeheartedly about things to come and eventual gain
