(oh)
A little rain again today,
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it
Right before my eyes.
(wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it)
But why talk about the weather?
And make it very lucky selling umbrellas.
I've got my hard opinions
On how to treat a love like this.

He should've held her closer,
When it was all he had to do.
When it was all he had to prove
To all his closest friends that she was a bright and beaming light.
A beacon in the night.
I rest on a vision of the shoreline glistening,
The two of us in love.

(ah)

Then the sun went down tonight
I wouldn't have believed it if
I hadn't seen it right in front of me
You painted the sky in a violet scene.
And I sat there in my car,
Shedding the tears that I could never have let you see.
Beneath that ashen moonlit sky,
I felt you right there with me.
I know you're right here with me

Step back, do it, fall in line and let it go
All you've got is the memory.

Should've held her closer,
When it was all he had to do.
When it was all he had to prove
To all his closest friends that she was a bright and beaming light,
A beacon in the night.
I rest on a vision of the shoreline glistening,
The two of us in love.

(the sun goes down!)

When the sun goes down tonight,
I set my eyes on a shoreline.

I'm gonna hold you closer,
As if it's all I have to do.
As if it's all I have to prove
To all my closest friends, that she was a bright and beaming light
A beacon in the night.
I rest on a vision of the two of us in love.

    General CommentI thought it was cool how they used the "ah" from His Melody off of Not Of This World. It threw me for a couple seconds. But I like it.

    General Commentin the first verse theres a misspelled word its "weather".

    the songs about 2 people in love and not regreting on loving that person in the right way. and how holding onto that person NOW and not sitting in your car later in life crying, regreting not holding onto her and loving her.

    General CommentSuch a cute song. He kills me with the Louie-Armstrong-deep-throaty-voice on the part that goes "I'M GONNA HOLD you closer!" Hahaha.
