My features form with a change in the weather

I don't know why this one line of the 80's Tears for Fears song, Mother's Talk, has been permanently etched into my cranium today on replay. It won't leave and is somehow comforting. Memories of the roaring 80's do comfort me so.

Anyway, we got a phone call from "the agency" and they stated that they are unable to confirm our Friday appointment at 10:00 AM due to some malarkey about an intern needing supervision. All I could think of was the quote from my fave college professor - Lack of organization on your part does not constitute an emergency (in this case -inconvenience) on my part. What's another day....

Back to the song that is haunting me, I think I have been quite moody lately- alot like our ever-changing, global warming, crazy So. Cal. weather. Santa Ana's blowing one day, rain the next (this causes most Californians to drive like complete morons), then sun and something completely different the day after.

Sending peaceful vibes and good energy out there and hoping to get some back this way. I'm getting back to yoga this weekend and know that will help me find some inner balance and peace.

Here are the words to the song:

Mother's Talk - Tears for Fears
My features form with a change in the weather
Weekend
We can work it out
My features form with a change in the weather
Weekend
We can work it out
When the wind blows
When the mothers talk
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the mothers talk
When the wind blows
We can work it out
It's not that you're not good enough
It's just that we can make you better
Given that you pay the price
We can keep you young and tender
Following in the footsteps of a funeral pyre
You were paid not listen now your house is on fire
Wake me up when things get started
When everything starts to happen
My features form with a change in the weather
Some of us horrified
Others never talk about it
But when the weather starts to burn
Then you'll know that you're in trouble
Following in the footsteps of a soldier girl
It is time to put your clothes on and to face the world
Don't you feel your luck is changing
When everything starts to happen
Put your head right next to my heart
The beat of the drum is the fear of the dark
My features form with a change in the weather

Love the quotation from your prof. And wish I was in SoCo. Right now it's just cold cold and more cold here. Blah.

I heard an explanation for the quote "My features form with a change in the weather" on a documentary of the band once. My explanation might be off but the general idea is there.
The song mother's talk comes in reference from a children's book. In it is a story about a mother telling his son that he shouldn't pull his face or it will stay that way.

Hope this helps a bit.
