Just Because It's Raining (2014)
Just because it's raining
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP) & © 2014 (SOCAN/BMI)

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


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

Blues have a tendency - those old sorry songs
Like misery's companions they catch you all alone
No photogenic smile can chase those moods 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 -that's alright


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 the stars are going to shine
Just because it's raining doesn't mean
The sun won't shine again
