Weather With You

Lyrics

playWalking 'round the room singing Stormy Weather
playAt Fifty Seven Mount Pleasant Street
playWell it's the same room,
playbut everything's different
playYou can fight the sleep, but not the dream

playThings ain't cookin' in my kitchen
playStrange affliction wash over me
playJulius Caesar and the Roman Empire
playCouldn't conquer the blue sky

playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather, the weather with you

playWell, there's a small boat made of china
playIt's going nowhere on the mantlepiece
playWell, do I lie like a loungeroom lizard
playOr do I sing like a bird released?

playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather,
playtake the weather, the weather with you

playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather with you
playEverywhere you go,
playalways take the weather,
playtake the weather, the weather with you

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

The song is about the effect a person has on their surroundings by the type of person they are, whether it be good or bad

"We were trying to imagine a time and a place, and the line 'Walking 'round the room singing Stormy Weather' helped us get into some atmosphere of somebody troubled who is always on their own in a room. We were trying to find lines that described the scene, like the 'small boat made of china', and that feeling of ennui or languishing that permeates the song. Ultimately, the theme of the song is, of course, that you are creating your own weather, you are making your own environment, always."
