Hang on Little Tomato

Have you heard of the 'little orchestra' Pink Martini? I have been wanting to check them out for a while now because I heard that they provide a unique musical experience crossing many cultures and music genres. When browsing the CD collection at the library last week I came across an album of theirs, Hang on Little Tomato. How fitting!

Here are the lyrics to the title track to their Hang on Little Tomato album:

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, 2004
