Just Because It's Raining
Lyrics
Just because it's raining
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Just because it's raining doesn't mean
Those old clouds - going to hang around
A little rain has got to fall - to make those trees grow strong
Sure - the sun goes down - and yesterday is gone:
A little darkness got to come - for the stars to shine

Wine before its time - is such a bitter brew
Procrastination sometimes - keeps the best for you
Just long enough - you simply got to wait -
Until your time -

Fortunes are reversible, just like the ocean tide
With intervening factors waiting to collide
Set probabilities and horoscopes aside -
You will survive!

Chorus:

Just because it's raining doesn't mean -
Those old dark clouds going to hang around too long -
A little rain has got to fall to make those trees grow strong
Sure - the sun goes down - and yesterday will soon be gone:
A little darkness got to come - for the stars to shine - again

Blues - they have a tendency - those old sorry songs
Like misery's companions - they catch you all alone
No photogenic smile - can chase the blues away -
But they're not here - to stay -

That melancholy sky - conceals the rainbow now
An optimistic outlook - you've got to find somehow -
And sentimental feelings - will slowly disappear -
That's alright - oh, sure that's alright!

Chorus:

Just because it's raining doesn't mean -
Those old dark clouds going to hang around too long -
A little rain has got to fall to make the trees grow strong

Oh - Destiny's no ordinary game - it's one you got to play -
Until you hear your name - and when you do -
And when you do - those stars
And when you do - those stars
And when you do - those stars are going to shine / again!
