Rain like a blanket was coming down
Drowning horizons in grey
Moments of hopelessness
Mingled with thoughts of the day

Search when I did, an umbrella was found
Yet no earthly shelter remained
Wind whipping droplets
like pinpricks in turbulent play

If the ocean trembles
If the sky must abide by it's faith
Why am I so different
To deny the life I've made

Half in humanity, half in a dream
Neither illusion will last
I keep forsaking the present
Along with the past

Somewhere between this umbrella and me
There in the question to ask
Can two feet of air
Stop the storm moving forward so fast

If the ocean trembles
If the sky must abide by it's faith
Why am I so different
To deny the life I've made

Try as I might to be quiet a while
Silence won't sit with me still
Somehow it knows
I'm not ready to go where it will

Peace is elusive and yet I smile
Someday I'll be drinking my fill
Guess I'll be wrestling
With my impatience until

If the ocean trembles
If the sky must abide by it's faith
Why am I so different
To deny the life I've made

If the ocean trembles
If the sky must abide by it's faith
Why am I so different
To deny the life I've made
