When It’s Raining

 
VERSE
The best day to write a song is when it’s raining:
No birds, no notes caught up in the sky.
They find their way into the quiet space of this old house,
So I write ‘em down – the next day try to figure ‘em out.
VERSE
The best day to say “I Love You” is when it’s raining:
When the world’s gone soft with a smoky, grey light.
Your words drift like a warm fog on a mountain top,
And settle in – like two lives never having a doubt.
CHORUS
Now, I like sunshine, but I think it’s over rated.
It’s a little too bright and starts memories fading.
But they all come tumbling back – when it’s raining.
VERSE
The best day to remember you is when it’s raining:
No one can really tell that I’m crying.
I find my way to our old bar, got your picture out,
One last whiskey up – wishing – you were around.
CHORUS
Now, I like sunshine, but I think it’s over rated.
It’s a little too bright and starts memories fading.
But they all come tumbling back – when it’s raining.
VERSE
The best day for memories is when it’s raining:
 ‘Cause you never know what you might find.
Forever love, broken hearts, lives heaven bound,
So you let em out – knowing they wanna’ stay down.
The best day to write a song – is when it’s raining.
