Pic(k) of the Week: Hang on, little tomato.

Hang on little tomato

A young tomato in the garden: on 8 June 2016, as yet green and, thus far, hanging on.

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'll 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 this 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: 2004.
