"...melancholia has now begun / To sneak into the supermarket lines / Psychological sorrow psychic pains / Are zig-zagging across the freeway lanes"

Bring Back the Sun


They tell me depression is on the rise

In southern California where the sun

Supposedly always shines there are signs

It has been so long since sun met our eyes

That melancholia has now begun

To sneak into the supermarket lines

Psychological sorrow psychic pains

Are zig-zagging across the freeway lanes


Trying to equalize and stabilize

Our mood within this constant rain of late

Has tipped the scales of many to create

Depression of unmanageable size

All night all day no matter what they say

About it the rain will not go away


They worry about it on the telly

But we feel helpless as we realize

As they speak of cut-off lows and storm cells

We are cut-off in our personal hells

Our hillsides are now turning to jelly

So they say depression is on the rise


It is not in our heads but in our skies

Bring back the fun O Lord bring back the sun

I agree that he will bring back the sun but then California has to remember the other son.

Now southern California gets a dose of what its like to live in the Northeast in the winter...if we can make it through, depression or not, so can you...I just hope you remain safe...Ed
