Weather With You

Lyrics

play Walking 'round the   singing Stormy Weather
play At Fifty Seven Mount Pleasant Street
play Well it's the   room,
play but everything's  
play You can fight the   , but not the dream

play Things ain't cookin' in my  
play Strange   wash over me
play Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire
play Couldn't   the blue  

play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather, the weather with you

play Well, there's a small boat made of  
play It's going   on the mantlepiece
play Well, do I lie like a   lizard
play Or do I sing like a   released?

play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather,
play take the weather, the weather with you

play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather with you
play Everywhere you go,
play always take the weather,
play take the weather, the weather with you

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."
