I've Been Here Before And I Deserve A Little More

I don't know why, but i have had this song in my head for the last couple of days. 



When I think of heaven 
(Deliver me in a black-winged bird) 
I think of flying down into a sea of 
pens and feathers and all other 
instruments of faith and sex and God 
in the belly of a black-winged bird 
Don't try to feed me 
I've been here before and I deserve a little more 

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She's been crying......I've been thinking 
And I am the Rain King 

I said mama, mama, mama 
Why am I so alone? 
I can't go outside 
I'm scared I might not make it home 
I'm alive.....but I'm sinking in 
If there's anyone home at your place 
Why don't you invite me in? 
Don't try to bleed me 
I've been there before and I deserve a little more 

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She's been lying 
I've been sinking 
And I am the Rain King 

Hey, I only want the same as anyone 
Henderson is waiting for the sun 
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends 
After all the dreaming I come home again 

When I think of heaven 
(Deliver me in a black-winged bird) 
I think of dying 
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather 
Render up my body into the burning heart of God in 
the belly of a black-winged bird 
Don't try to bleed me 
I've been here before and I deserve a little more 

I belong in the service of the Queen 
I belong anywhere but in between 
She's been dying 
I been drinking and I am the Rain King

I actually LOVE Counting Crows but I'll be darned......I don't remember having heard this one before.... I LOVE it tho. I gotta check out that book too.......I've seen it in one of hub's bookshelves.....<br />
Wow good songs and a book recommendation....This is as good as a recipe!! :D

I am magical. :)<br />

Really, I don't know, I've just had this song in my head for a few days now. I've never read "Henderson The Rain King", but it is in my To Be Read pile. I'll pick it up next.

oh man. i may have to re-read it and we can "book club discuss" it! :0] it was soooo pertinent to a certain time in my life. do you do that? have music that serves as a theme to a certain time in your life? i kind of mark the years by certain albums, i've noticed...

HOW do you do that!?? <br />
<br />
this is one of the most meaningful songs... derived from one of the most meaningful books... ever, in my life. <br />

Henderson the Rain King was responsible for my introduction to the Counting Crows. <3 HUGE HEARTS on this selection, Aether!! <3

How cool is that??? pssst....I think he might be a little *magical too*
