It's Raining

about

A cover of a song written by Mr Kobi LaCroix (zencavern.com) He's so talented and I wanted desperately to get more people to hear this song. Primarily a visual artist, but his music is drop dead gorgeous. Made me cry and was easily my favorite song of last year. This year? Another song by him has taken it's place.

lyrics

Sunday is speaking little poems for all the people
Dots on the sidewalk tiny letters of glass
the briefcase apostle grumbles coldly and calls it evil
he sneers on the specter dancing round in the grass

the stranger out wild all wet but all smiles
sings honestly

stay around for the rain
the lyrical rescue human distinction stolen away
days will change and will fade
the weather’s still good, won’t you stay

what is a person when his passions have no venue
where are the lovers in this frightened land
weather can worsen but the sky can also cleanse you
feel it’s elation weep into your hands

he kneels on a stair gives the simplest of prayers
“I thank you”

stay around for the rain
the shelters of silver, shapes of the first song we ever sang
days will change and will fade
wish as we may, nothing stays

oh....

shine your eyes through the torrent never move your gaze
days have changed, gone away, gone away
much as we like we can’t stay
nothing stays, nothing stays
