and when you're on the floor, come back for more

Song of the day: "Some of Your Planes" by Lenny Smallman, covering Richard Lumsden.

I heard it on Emma Thompson's DID.  She was sent a tape by her sister Sophie when she was working on Junior (and very unhappy from her failing marriage with Ken), and she said the album (Sunshine Takes You) helped her immensely.  Sophie later married Richard.

The lyrics are exactly what I need to hear (all the time):

some of your planes will come down
some of your rain will fall
some of your fires won't burn
some of your lovers won't call

and when you're on the floor
come back for more
you see the light shining through
the holes in your roof

some of your truths will be lies
some of your boats will drown
nothing will last without change
some of your friends let you down

when you're on the floor
you come back for more
you see the light shining through
the holes in your roof

lift your head and breathe the air
live the bravest life you dare
love until there's nothing left

some of your planes come down
