Listening Post

"Everyone is looking for someone to blame.
But you share my bed, you share my name.
Well, go ahead and call the cops.
You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops.
She said baby, I still love you.
Sometimes theres nothing left to do."

-- Tom Waits, "Hold On"

Wow. I LOVE this song. One of my favorite Tom Waits songs ever, and there's a lot to choose from. I especially like the line "you don't meet nice girls in coffee shops." I met my ex boyfriend in a coffee shop, and I played this song for him a lot, maybe as a warning? I don't know. But every time I'm down or in a mood, I listen to this song. It never gets old. Never.

I don't think I've ever seen a Tom Waits music video. The action in the video is a pretty literal interpretation of the lyrics, but I don't really even mind 'cause it's such a pretty song.
