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.

North Of Forty Lyrics

NORTH OF FORTY   VERSE The world looks different on my side of the map, there’s gravel runnin’ under your wheels. You never think you’ll make it back to a four lane road. On my side of town...
