lyrics

When it Rains

She didn’t really get the joke
She turned away and gave a nervous smile
Didn’t really know what to say at all,
She stood up. She walked out
I don’t even think she turned around
Like she was never even there at all
And when it rains I always feel like I’ll get washed away
Right now the clouds are looking grey
Just trying to lift the weight of mountains laying on my shoulders

People tell me to have faith, that my mistakes will lead me somehow to another plane
But there’s only so much I can take, at least today.
It’s alright, it’s ok. I didn’t really like her anyway.
Like saying that will somehow reprogram my brain.
And when it rains I always feel like I’ll get washed away
Right now the clouds are looking grey
Just trying to lift the weight of mountains laying on his shoulders

Oh lord, make me an optimist, and fill my glass half full
Remove this curse of thinking the worst will happen
Oh lord make me an optimist, I’m not asking for a luxury car
And yes, I guess it’s a messed up request, as a lifelong non-believer and a shameless lyric stealer.

To catch this tiger by its tail
The way to win is first, to fail.
Oh lord make me an optimist, I’m not asking for a luxury car
And yes, I guess it’s a messed-up request, as a lifelong non-believer and a flagrant lyric stealer.
So catch the tiger by his tail.
