Right as Rain – Original Song Lyrics

Right as Rain – Original Song Lyrics

music in my head, but i can't hear it

music in my head, but i can’t hear it

I wrote this song back in 2009 (the picture above is from 2009 too lol), and found this half-finished, draft blog post with the lyrics and some background about the song. So now, just 5 short years later (5 years? reallly?), here you go!

Right As Rain – 2009

The inspiration came from a school project my son had to do on The Water Cycle. The other day it hit me that many of the relationships that I’ve had follow the same cycles. They always start off making you feel like you can just float off into the atmosphere forever…but sooner or later you fall back to earth. You can sink deep into the roots of the earth, grow and nourish the lives around you, or go with the flow and let yourself be washed out into the sea, into the seas of humanity. Just another drop of water in the ocean of humankind.

Lyrics, Right as Rain

Like a dew drop in the sunshine
We float into the atmosphere
Heated by the passion of the day
Drifting higher and higher
Cooling on the winds of fear
Until there’s nothing left to say
Smiles now have turned to ice
Too heavy for the air to hold
Falling we go falling thru the dark
Melting on the way back down
Splashing as we hit the ground
Thunder crashing in a lightning spark
It’s always right as rain
The circle starts again
This time you and me
Next time wait and see
Round and round we spiral thru the pain
Round and round and round and round again
Which path shook we take this time
Should we flow down to the sea or should we
Try to reach the heavens while we can
Join with mighty river currents
Or sink into the earthen roots
Try to choose, try to understand.
But like a dew drop in the sunshine
We float into the atmosphere
Here we are again now anyway
Drifting higher and higher
Flying on the winds of change
Wishing we could both just float away

Right as Rain

This is a new song…I wrote the lyrics over the past few days, and the music tonight. The inspiration came from a class project my son had to do on the Water Cycle. The other day it hit me that relationships that I’ve had follow the same cycles. They always start off making you feel like you can just float off into the atmosphere forever…but sooner or later you fall back to earth. You can sink deep into the roots of the earth and nourish the lives around you or go with the flow into the seas of humanity. You can download the MP3 for free from the player here:
