Song for the Last Monday in November

It’s rainy and coldish, and we can’t go to the park*, and this is the perfect song for today, trust me.

“i am young and getting wiser,
soon i will grow old”

–“Lovers Without Love”
By Joshua James

It’s reductive to sum up songs this way, but this one has the wistfulness of “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes and some of the outrage of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” By Bob Dylan. But hey, go ahead and listen to it yourself: http://www.myspace.com/joshuajamesmusic

*This reminds me of the opening line of Jane Eyre: “There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.”
