"Running From The Rain" as written by and Geoffrey/keeley Rickly....
There was a sound,
Split all the heavens apart
In on the northern route,
Out of the southern spark
Oh, I will be with you,
Running from the rain

When it reaches the end of the line
See myself reflected, in broken glass
As the gates come crashing down

There is blood on the tracks tonight
And rust inside our veins
(we will make it in time before the storm)
Running behind me

There were some younger kids
Who followed the tracks that day
It was a passing afternoon
And I came and took them away

So we forgot our names
Lying in the tall grass that's underneath the billboard dreams
Oh, I will be with you,
Running from the rain

When it reaches the end of the line
See myself reflected, in broken glass
As the gates come crashing down

There is blood on the tracks tonight
And rust inside on our veins
(we will make it in time before the storm)
It's running all over [Repeat: x4]
(the rain)
Running from the rain

Indecipherable whispers this is what I got

I need to get them out.
It's the right time to crash is it not?
You were all counting down, running on.
Running from the rain.
Operator, operator can you take it away?
You got that car you brought from me
Keep running cause you know it's true,
We're coming back,
Running from the rain.

    General CommentI had a great amount of difficulty transcripting some of these:
    "In the Northern _______"
    "(We will make every turn if ______)"
    and all that whispering was difficult

    So any help will be much appreciated thanks!

    General CommentAlso as far as the song goes, this one is friggin amazing and I am getting more excited every second. I must hear the full version of Sugar In The Sacrement tho it is like this but more amazing. Each song I hear just impresses me more.

    General CommentI.Love.This.Song.

    Let me tell you people, this song is much more beautiful live. They played it back at the December shows and I was simply enchanted. Geoff's voice sounds amazing and the guitars are so simple and beautiful and during their live show, the lights match the mood of this song so well. Ahhhhhh, I'm in love. I've had this song on repeat pretty much all day. I can't wait to see them in 22/25 days. =)

    General CommentIs it just me or could you trade Rain for Train and you basically get all the literal sense of this song just splayed out in front of you? I attempted to fix some of the lyrics, the one's in capitals are the one's I'm not sure about and of course there is still that whispering at the end.

    General Commentthere is blood on the tracks tooooniiight! lovely.. and yes it reminds you of sigur ros in the beginning. this song is apparently about the train accident that a friend of geoff's had. i suppose we can't go into much more detail with that, as far as the story behind it.
