Summary: What do you do when someone you love might be going crazy? You keep loving them…

Archive: "In dreams…of silk and adamantium" and "Dolphin Haven." All others, please ask… I'll say yes.

Author Notes: This is a direct result of listening to Matchbox 20 at work, and not so much working. Just warning you… this is some sort of strange poem/song fic/stream-of-consciousness thingy.

Acknowledgments: Thanks to Terri for previewing this little offering for me. As always, I really appreciate your encouragement! And to CJ, you read my mind…I’ll be working on those ideas and your support means the world to me.

Dedication: This is for Scott, because, "there's a camel in the bowling alley. There's something just not right about that…" (What he always says about the video for this song…)

sometimes, you keep loving someone

even when they're losing touch with reality

 

on a sunny day in August,

Marie said it's cold outside

and she handed me my raincoat

 

and she swears that the Moon

don't hang quite as high as it used to

 

these days

she's always worried about things like that

 

 

sometimes, you keep loving someone

even when its not convenient to you

 

Marie only sleeps when it's raining

until one of my nightmares wakes her

 

and she screams

and her voice is straining

 

and she says "baby

it's 3am

I must be lonely"

 

when she says "baby"

well, I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes

 

 

sometimes, you keep loving someone

even when they don't want you to

 

Marie told me today

that it's all gonna end

and it might as well be my fault

 

 

sometimes, you keep loving someone

because you still can see the person they were

 

Marie's got a little bit of something

(God, it's better than nothing)

 

and in her color portrait world

she believes that she's got it all

 

 

sometimes, you keep loving someone

because maybe it's you that's crazy

 

Marie thinks that Happiness could be

the mat that sits on our doorway

 

I told her that she might be right, but…

 

"yeah, and you're the fucking poster boy

for mental health, Logan"

 

And the rain's gonna wash away

I believe this

 

 

sometimes, you keep loving someone

because you just do

 

Marie believes that life

is made up of all that you're used to

 

and the clock on the wall

has been stuck at three for days,

and days

 

but outside, it's stopped raining

 

and I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes

"3am"

Matchbox 20

From the album: Yourself or Someone Like You

Lyrics and music by Rob Thomas

 

Well, she said it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat

She's always worried about things like that

Well, she said it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault

And she only sleeps when it's raining

And she screams and her voice is straining

 

And she says baby

It's 3am I must be lonely

When she says baby

Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes

And the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

 

She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing

And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all

She swears the Moon don't hang quite as high as it used to

And she only sleeps when it's raining

And she screams and her voice is straining

 

And she says baby

Well, it's 3am I must be lonely

I hate it when she says baby

Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes

And the rain's gonna wash away I believe this

 

She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to

And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days

She thinks that Happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway, yeah

But outside, it's stopped raining

 

Yeah , and she says baby

Well, it's 3am I must be lonely

I hate it when she says baby

Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes

And the rain's gonna wash away I believe this

 

Well, it's 3am must be lonely

Well, I hate it when she says baby

Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
