Rainbows and Pots of Gold

I've been having a Stereophonics day today. They are probably in my top 5 bands of all time. If you haven't heard of them, please check them out! I promise you won't regret it. Kelly Jones has such an amazing voice. I've seen them live a few times. Some songs can be a bit hard to listen to because they do make me think of better times. This song doesn't make me think of good times, but I think some of the lyrics do hold something. I'll leave the link at the bottom of the entry if anybody wants to check it out. I'm not here to drone about failed relationships or stuff that I can't change. I really am trying to put that stuff behind me. It's just difficult when a relationship dominated and impacted your life for so long.

Lyrics that really hold weight with me are :-

And I've grown a lot since we last spoke
Got myself together fixed what was broke
I wonder if we'll talk again
Or drink together just like then

I suppose it's different now it's new
Whoever points the finger at who
I really hope you're happy both of you
And maybe sometimes you miss me too

The song was written because the lead singer's friend was courting his "first girlfriend" four weeks after their relationship had ended. They had been together for 12 years. It says on his Wikipedia :-

In 2002, Jones went to his friend and band photographer Julian Castaldi's home, kicked down his front door, smashed his window with a brick and then vandalised his two cars with a scaffolding pole, whilst under the influence of alcohol. This was because Jones had recently discovered that Castaldi was courting Dunn, four weeks after they had ended their long-term relationship. Castaldi called the police and consequently Jones was arrested. However Castaldi did not press charges, leaving Kelly Jones with a £2000 fine for damages. Jones commented that "What I did was completely out of character – but what he did was wrong", later writing the song "Rainbows and Pots of Gold" in response to the event.

I wouldn't say I've "fixed" myself. I know I've got a long way to go. I've acknowledged my problems and what a shit person I was though. I'm still trying to better myself but I don't ever want to be that person again. All I'm trying to do right now is be a better person that I was the day before. Neither of us were innocent and both did shit things but I think as long as we can acknowledge and understand that. What else is there we can do? I talk about forgiving myself but I'm not even halfway there yet. I don't know how to. I don't really have much else to say. I only wrote this entry because the song came on shuffle on Spotify, and it brought up some feelings.

Here is the link to the song if anybody wants to check it out :-
