"Downpour" as written by and Brandi M. Carlile....
I'm like the rain in a downpour
I wash away what you long for
And I wave goodbye with the sun in my eyes
I wish I could be there tonight

I'm like the wind in the canyon
I'm there when I'm gone in a second
You're growing older in peace where you're at
I wish I could be there for that
But I've moved on
Like a rolling stone
In a crowded room
I'm alone

I'm like the rain in a downpour
I wash away what you long for
And I wave goodbye with the sun in my eyes
I wish I could be there tonight
Oh, oh, yeah

You're like the tide in the deep blue
Cause you're always there when I need you
And when you need someone to carry you through
I'm gonna be there for you
I'm gonna be there for you

    General CommentThis is a song about missing home and wanting everyone to know what regardless, there is still a part of you that is there when you are gone.

    General CommentI just saw her in concert and she said she wrote it for her parents' 25th anniversary because she wasn't going to be able to be there for the celebration. She actually ended up being able to make it. She sang the song for a couple who requested it because it was their anniversary. Very sweet!
