  • I find playing Bob Dylan's 'Idiot wind' works a treat.

    Why upset just one lover, when you can upset them all.

    ♫Someone's got it in for me

    They're planting stories in the press

    Whoever it is I wish they'd cut it out quick

    But when they will I can only guessThey say I shot a man named Gray

    And took his wife to Italy

    She inherited a million bucks

    And when she died it came to me

    I can't help it if I'm luckyPeople see me all the time

    And they just can't remember how to act

    Their minds are filled with big ideas

    Images and distorted facts

    Even you, yesterday

    You had to ask me where it was at

    I couldn't believe after all these years

    You didn't know me, any better than that

    Sweet ladyIdiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth

    Blowing down the back roads headin' south

    Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth

    You're an idiot babe

    It's a wonder that you still know how to breatheI ran into the fortune-teller, who said

    "Beware of lightnin' that might strike"

    I haven't known peace and quiet for so long

    I can't remember what it's like

    There's a lone soldier on the cross

    Smoke pourin' out of a boxcar door

    You didn't know it, you didn't think it could be done

    In the final end he won the war

    After losin' every battleI woke up on the roadside

    Daydreamin' 'bout the way things sometimes are

    Visions of your chestnut mare

    Shoot through my head and are makin' me see starsYou hurt the ones that I love best

    And cover up the truth with lies

    One day you'll be in the ditch

    Flies buzzin' around your eyes

    Blood on your saddleIdiot wind, blowing through the flowers on your tomb

    Blowing through the curtains in your room

    Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth

    You're an idiot babe

    It's a wonder that you still know how to breatheIt was gravity which pulled us down

    And destiny which broke us apart

    You tamed the lion in my cage

    But it just wasn't enough to change my heartNow everything's a little upside down

    As a matter of fact the wheels have stopped

    What's good is bad, what's bad is good

    You'll find out when you reach the top

    You're on the bottomI noticed at the ceremony

    Your corrupt ways had finally made you blind

    I can't remember your face anymore

    Your mouth has changed, your eyes don't look into mineThe priest wore black on the seventh day

    And sat stone-faced while the building burned

    I waited for you on the running boards

    Near the cypress tree

    While the springtime turned, slowly into autumnIdiot wind, blowing like a circle around my skull

    From the Grand Coulee Dam to the Capitol

    Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth

    You're an idiot, babe

    It's a wonder that you still know how to breatheI can't feel you anymore

    I can't even touch the books you've read

    Every time I crawl past your door

    I been wishin' I've been somebody else insteadDown the highway, down the tracks

    Down the road to ecstasy

    I followed you beneath the stars

    Hounded by your memory

    And all your ragin' gloryI been double-crossed now

    For the very last time and now I'm finally free

    I kissed goodbye the howling beast

    On the borderline which separated you from meYou'll never know the hurt I suffered

    Nor the pain I rise above

    And I'll never know the same about you

    Your holiness or your kind of love

    And it makes me feel so sorryIdiot wind, blowing through the buttons of our coats

    Blowing through the letters that we wrote

    Idiot wind, blowing through the dust upon our shelves

    We're idiots, babe

    It's a wonder we can even feed ourselves♫
