Thankful Thursday: Hang On Lil' Tomato

It's time again for Thankful Thursday, a weekly pause for gratitude. Go ahead, take a moment to appreciate the big things (life, love) and small things (books, breakfast) and the assortment of people, places & things inbetween.

On this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for Pink Martini, a quirky but elegantly cool band from Portland, Oregon that mixes, mashes and dishes up delightful tunes such as the one above. 

Hang On Little Tomato

The sun has left and forgotten me
It's dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I'm gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion

Somebody told me, I don't know who
Whenever you are sad and blue
And you're feelin' all alone and left behind
Just take a look inside and you will find

You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
Hang on, things will be all right
Even when it's dark
And not a bit of sparkling
Sing-song sunshine from above
Spreading rays of sunny love

Just hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you'll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something's coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you

— Pink Martini
