"When It Rains" as written by and Tristan Prettyman....
Maybe I'm changing
Maybe I'm so impatient
Maybe I just don't care, about what you think

cause I can never please her
No matter how hard I try
You know sometimes I just wanna throw up my hands and say
"ok fine"!

But life's to short she said
If it works then it works, let it go
And I'm sorry I ever got you started
When it rains, it pours and it shows

I was blessed with a birth and a death
And a gift or a curse somewhere in between
Cause your only as loud as the noises you make
And as big as the things that you dream

still I can never please him
No matter how hard I try
And maybe you should have made up your mind
Before I changed mine

but life's to short she said,
If it works then it works, let it go
And I'm sorry I ever got you started
When it rains it pours and it shows

still life's to short she said
If it works, then it works, just let it go, let it go
Well I'm sorry I ever got you started
When it rains it pours and it shows

    General Commenti love this song. It reflects what i feel about this girl right now... "and i could never please her. no matter how hard i try..." I'll just have to go along with everything.

    General Commenthmmmm im thinking

    'Cause I can never please her
    no matter how hard I try
    You know sometimes I just wanna throw up my hands and say,
    "ok fine"

    refers to maybe her mum?? ie fights between mother & daughter

    and that

    Still I can never please him
    no matter how hard I try
    and maybe you should have made up your mind
    before I changed mine

    refers to a relationship with a guy

    haha yeah :) not many people have commented on tristan's songs. maybe just not many know about her cause i think she's fantastic -- her songs are summery and breezy and so easy to listen to -- whats not to like :)

    General CommentYES! Thank you, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I thought so as soon as I read "I was blessed with a birth and a death." I adore both of them.

    General Commentto me she is singing tow sides of a relationship.. the guy feels like he can never please her so he pulls away.. but hs should let go b-c life is too short

    the second verse is her trying to please him after he has pulled away, and realizing its all in vain.. giving up, then him coming back..but its too late b-c she has changed her mind already

    isn't that the way it always is?
