“C” is for Call

When trying to think of an appropriate “c” word, The Barenaked Ladies song Call and Answer* just would not leave me alone! So, what follows is a verse-by-verse representation using pictures from Sparkhouseย ( A LOT of pictures )

*the link will take you to the song on YouTube, in a separate window, so you can play it in the background while viewing this post.

 

I think it’s getting to the point where I can be myself again

It’s getting to the point where we have almost made amends

I think it’s the getting to the point that is the hardest part

f9933b3c-70d1-437b-802f-7d108d45bf26

 

And if you call, I will answer

And if you fall, I’ll pick you up

And if you court this disaster

22a08f0c-2023-4849-b4fe-21faf46a5cea

 

I’ll point you home, I’ll point you home

 

You think I only think about you when we’re both in the same room

I’m only here to witness the remains of love exhumed

dcd758b0-4082-4afc-b931-e7e313fdcc5f

 

You think we’re here to play a game of who loves more than whom

And if you call, I will answer

And if you fall, I’ll pick you up

And if you court this disaster

You think it’s only fair to do what’s best for you and you alone

6613b802-c1c0-41c0-b7dc-20b65d4881e4

 

It’s only fair to do the same to me when you’re not home

f34ee089-35bf-425b-aa3b-a26fc5323a6a

 

I think it’s time to make this something that is more than only fair

So if you call, I will answer

And if you fall, I’ll pick you up

And if you court this disaster

I’ll point you home

But I’m warning you don’t ever do those crazy messed up things that you do

bbe640e6-0c0c-4c6e-929d-76a96590396c

 

If you ever do I promise you I’ll be the first to crucify you

    Thank you so much for this post Kelbel. The song was the perfect choice for these pictures even though I wasn’t that familiar with it before.

    I thought Richard was brilliant in Sparkhouse even though the violence was hard to take at times. I love this quote from Annette’s RAOnline.com website; “As Thornton, he uses his height to convey authority and power, but as Standring he stoops and hangs his head. It’s an unselfish, convincing performance, and is one of his most appealing characters.” How true! I actually wasn’t sure if I’d want to watch it having seen little snippets of it on YT but I went ahead and bought it anyway a few years ago now and I’m very happy that I did. From the shy farmer he turns into a stunningly handsome man when he has his hair cut. His true masculine beauty as well as his goodness as a person finally gets a chance to shine through.

    • I avoided watching Sparkhouse because the synopsis just didn’t grab me. but then someone on one of the forums suggested I really should watch it; I’m so glad I took that advice ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love John Standring. You did well by him here. Thanks for introducing me to a great band. (Yeah, I’m a little behind the times.)
