Well you say you got the blues,
Got holes in both of your shoes,
Feelin alone and confused,
You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Yeah, you're about to go insane,
Cause your womans playing games
And she says that you're to blame,
You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes til the sun comes out again
Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes, singin this refrain

Singin in a honky tonk cafe,
Nobody's hearin what you play,
They're too busy drinkin anyway,
You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin
Brother keep on smiling

You say you found a peace of land
Gonna change from city boy to country man
Try to build your life with your hands
You got to keep on smilin, keep on smilin

Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes til the sun comes out again
Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes, singin this refrain

You're just hangin out in a local bar,
And you're wonderin who the hell you are
Are you a bum or are you a star?

Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes til the sun comes out again
Keep on smilin through the rain, laughin at the pain
Rollin with the changes, singin this refrain

This is Paul's and my 'Our Song.'

This is the springtime of my loving-
The second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
So little warmth Ive felt before.
It isnt hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.

It is the summer of my smiles-
Flee from me keepers of the gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
It is to you I give this tune.
Aint so hard to recognize-
These things are clear to all from
Time to time. ooooh...

Talk talk-
Ive felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us...

But I know that I love you so
But I know that I love you so.

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all a little rain
Must fall.
Just a little rain?
Ooooh, yeah yeah yeah!

*resists urge to quote Blind Melon or Eddie Rabbit*

Alice in Chains
"Rain When I Die"
Quote:
Is she ready to know my frustration?
What she slippin' inside, slow castration
I'm a riddle so strong, you can't break me
Did she come here to try, try to take me

Did she call my name?
I think it's gonna rain
When I die

Was it something I said, held against me?
Ain't no life on the run, slowly climbing
Caught in ice so she stares, stares at nothing
I can help her but won't, now she hates me

Did she call my name?
I think it's gonna rain
When I die

She won't let me hide
She don't want me to cry

Will she keep on the ground, trying to ground me
Slowly forgive my lie, lying to save me
Could she love me again, or will she hate me
Prob'ly not, I know why, can't explain me

Did she call my name?
I think it's gonna rain
When I die

Only love
only love
Can make it rain
Can make it rain
The way the beach is kissed by the sea.
The way the beach is kissed by the sea.
Only love

Can make it rain
Can make it rain
Like the sweat of lovers'

Laying in the fields.

Love, Reign o'er me.
Love, reign o'er me.
Love, Reign o'er me, rain on me.
Love, reign o'er me, rain on me.


Only love
Only love
Can bring the rain
Can bring the rain
That makes you yearn to the sky.
That makes you yearn to the sky.
Only love
Only love

That falls like tears from on high.

Love Reign O'er me.

On the dry and dusty road
On the dry and dusty road
The nights we spend apart alone
The nights we spend apart alone
I need to get back home to cool cool rain.
I need to get back home to cool cool rain.
The nights are hot and black as ink

I can't sleep and I lay and I think
I can't sleep and i lay and i think
Oh God, I need a drink of cool cool rain.
Oh god, i need a drink of cool cool rain.

"Rain," by The Beatles

If the rain comes
they run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes
If the rain comes

When the sun shines
they slip into the shade
and sip their lemonade
When the sun shines
When the sun shines

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

I can show you
that when it starts to rain
everything's the same
I can show you
I can show you

Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine

Can you hear me
that when it rains and shines
it's just a state of mind
Can you hear me
Can you hear me

Early Morning Rain
by Gordon Lightfoot

Quote:
In the early morning rain
With a dollar in my hand
With an achin in my heart
And my pockets full of sand
Im a long way from home
And I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain
With no place to go

Out on runway number nine
Big seven-o-seven set to go
But Im stuck here in the grass
Where the cold wind blows
Now the liquor tasted good
And the women all were fast
Well there she goes my friend
Well shes rollin down at last

Hear the mighty engines roar
See the silver bird on high
Shes away and westward bound
Far above the clouds she'll fly
Where the mornin rain dont fall
And the sun always shines
Shell be flyin o'er my home
In about three hours time

This old airports got me down
Its no earthly good to me
cause Im stuck here on the ground
As cold and drunk as I can be
You cant jump a jet plane
Like you can a freight train
So Id best be on my way
In the early morning rain

You cant jump a jet plane
Like you can a freight train
So Id best be on my way
In the early morning rain

Good Post


Quote:
When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
and all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to feed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen I belong anywhere but in between
She's been crying I've been thinking And I am the Rain King

Mama, why am I so alone?
I can't go outside
I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place
Why don't you invite me in
Don't try to bleed me
I've been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying
I've been sinking
And I am the Rain King

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again...

When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of dying Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God in the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to bleed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been dying
I been drinking and I am the Rain King.

I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
Bringing back sweet memories
I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
'Cause he's not here with me
Hey window pain do you remember
How sweet it used to be
When we were together
Everything was so grand, yes it was
Now that we've parted
There's one sound that I just can't stand...I can't stand the rain
Alone with the pillow
Where his head used to lay, yeah
I know you've got some sweet memories
But like a window you ain't got nothin' to say
I can't stand the rain 'gainst my window
Bringing back sweet memories, hey
I can't stand the rain, ooh
'Gainst my window, oh no no
'Cause he's not here with me, uh
Alone with the pillow uh uh
Where his head used to lay, yeah
I know you've got some sweet memories
But like a window you ain't got nothin' to say, hey hey
Uh, uh, I can't stand the rain...
(I can't I can't I can't can't stand the rain)...
Baby, uh, uh, uh, hey hey
Ooh, ooh, uh, uh, hey
Don't you know, 't you think...
No no ooh oooohh hey hey hey hey hey, no
Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum
Oohh !... Get off my window...
(I can't I can't I can't can't stand the rain)...
Get off my window now, get off my window
Get off my window nah, I can't stand the rain
I can't stand the rain, ooh, can't stand the rain, oh

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me like lovers do
Walk with me like lovers do
Talk to me like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oooooh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
Here is comes again, here it comes again
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

The cauliflower ears
The crocodile tears
The hearts too hard for breaking
We hobble down to your undertow
The lunatic fringe by the Quackery
Miracle sludge from the factory
Come to trouble the water
Angels and otters
Psychosomatics cleaning their attics - they learn

Grace is the Smell of Rain

Pride that stiffs the neck
Healed by graceless genuflect
Heaven and earth embracing
Like lovers under the mistletoe
These low of lows, dregs of the earth
Malcontents when the last are first
Come to trouble the water
Mothers and fathers
Immersing their babies, they pluck them from hades where

Grace is the smell of rain

There's old sleep in our eyes
And deep thorns in our sides
but old dogs learn new tricks
when the rain is falling
By the bottomless lagoon
A drunkard's dancing in the moonlight

The cauliflower ears (the dregs of the earth making their way)
The crocodile tears (a drunkards dance under the moonlight)
The hearts too hard for breaking
We hobble down to your undertow
The lunatic fringe by the Quackery
Miracle sludge from the factory
Come to trouble the water
Angels and otters
Psychosomatics cleaning their attics - they learn

Grace is the Smell of Rain
Grace is the Smell of Rain
Grace is the Smell of Rain

Fixing a Hole-Beatles
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
and stops my mind from wandering
where it will go
I'm filling the cracks that ran though the door
and kept my mind from wandering
where it will go

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong
I'm right where I belong
I'm right where I belong
See the people standing there
who disagree and never win
and wonder why they don't get in my door

I'm painting my room in a colorful way,
and when my mind is wandering
there I will go

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong
I'm right where I belong
I'm right where I belong
Silly people run around
they worry me and never ask me
why they don't get past my door

I'm taking my time for a number of things
that weren't important yesterday
and I still go

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
and stops my mind from wandering
where it will go
where it will go
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
and stops my mind from wandering
where it will go

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways,
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin',
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin',
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin',
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin',
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony,
I met a white man who walked a black dog,
I met a young woman whose body was burning,
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
I met one man who was wounded in love,
I met another man who was wounded with hatred,
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

This circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
Its raining in baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no ones around

I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I need a big love
I need a phone call

These train conversations are passing me by
And I dont have nothing to say
You get what you pay for
But I just had no intention of living this way

I need a phone call
I need a plane ride
I need a sunburn
I need a raincoat

And I get no answers
And I dont get no change
Its raining in baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same

Theres things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?

I need a phone call
Maybe I should buy a new car
I can always hear a freight train
if I listen real hard
And I wish it was a small world
Because Im lonely for the big towns
I'd like to hear a little guitar
I think its time to put the top down

I need a phone call
I need a raincoat

lost cities of gold. burnt tar,
gravel pits. sixteen gears switch.
Haphazard Lucy strolls by.

Unevensong-Camel
(to be played when reaching the Isle of TOT)

Sleepless nights, restless days
Memories of her gentle ways
Love locked out looks for a home
A place to find a shelter from the storm


She said you are the air I breathe
The life I love, the dream I weave
Without a word, with just a touch
Now I realize you meant so much


Been awake so long
I feel like I belong
With the rain


Morning light appears
The feelings of the night
Remain


Somewhere inbetween
The waking and the dream
Feel you close to me

Standin' in the Rain - ELO

I'm standing in the rain
I'm waiting all alone
I'm so tired
I wanna go home.

I'm standing in the rain
Getting soaking wet
I'm doing my best
But what do I get?

I'm standing in the rain
Can't seem to get along
People rushing by
Wish they could hear my song.

I'm standing in the rain
It's teeming down on me
Cats & dogs
I wanna be free.

I'm standing in the rain
Doing my thing
I'm trying my best
What does it bring?
I'm standing in the rain
Getting soaking wet
I'm doing my best
But what does it get?

The good intentions and the pain
Lay drowned now in the pouring rain
I tried to be so good this time
But here I am under the sky.

The good intentions and the pain
Lay drowned now in the pouring rain.


(Actually, just reading them, the lyrics seem kinda lame to me. Laughing But I've always been more into the music of songs than the lyrics, and have often sung the wrong words, or gibberish. Great lyrics most certainly add to a song, but aren't necessary for me. And what group is more about the music than ELO? Even if most of their lyrics are at least a little better than this.)

Paul's input...

Standing in the rain, with his head hung low
Couldnt get a ticket, it was a sold out show
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream

He heard one guitar, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store
Didnt know how to play it, but he knew for sure

That one guitar, felt good in his hands
Didnt take long, to understand
Just one guitar, slung way down low
Was one way ticket, only one way to go

So he started rockin
Aint never gonna stop
Gotta keep on rockin
Someday hes gonna make it to the top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Hes a juke box hero
He took one guitar, juke box hero, stars in his eyes
Juke box hero, hell come alive tonight

In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the backstage door
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one guitar made his whole life change

Now he needs to keep rockin
He just cant stop
Gotta keep on rockin
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Hes a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Yeah, juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
With that one guitar hell come alive
Come alive tonight

Yeah, hes gotta keep rockin
He just cant stop
Gotta keep on rockin
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Hes a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Just one guitar, put stars in his eyes
Hes just a juke box hero, aah aah aah
Juke box hero, juke box hero, hes got stars in his eyes
Stars in his eyes


and

Strolling along country roads with my baby
It starts to rain, it begins to pour
Without an umbrella we're soaked to the skin
I feel a shiver run up my spine
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

Ooooo, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Ooooo, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside

After a while we run under a tree
I turn to her and she kisses me
There with the beat of the rain on the leaves
Softly she breathes and I close my eyes
Sharing our love under stormy skies

Ooooo, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Ooooo, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside
I feel the warmth of her hand in mine

[Musical Interlude]

I feel the warmth of her hand in mine
Ooooo, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Ooooo, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside
Ooooh, I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Ooooo, how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside


:::apologizes for that second one:::
