"Rainy Day Lament" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Where do you go when your luck runs out
Yeah, where do you go
Where do you go when you’re down
And where do you go when you feel like crying
Where do you go
Where do you go when you’re down

Won’t you come inside with me today
You could stay inside with me today
Can’t you see it’s gonna rain

And how do you feel when the lights go out
How do you feel
How do you feel when you’re alone
How do you feel when there’s no one there
On the other end of the phone

Won’t you come inside with me today
Just stay inside with me today
Can’t you see it’s gonna rain
Can’t you see it’s gonna rain
It’s gonna rain

Don’t you wanna get warm
Don’t you wanna get dry
And don’t you wanna stay
Can’t you see its gonna rain

So won’t you come inside with me today
Cause I can see it’s gonna rain
Yeah, I can see it’s gonna rain
Can’t you see it’s gonna rain
Oh, I can see it’s gonna rain

    General CommentWow I feel so weird because I'm looking up a song I saw on House at 1:33 am haha. I love the songs they play in that series, and anyone would agree when I say they're all emotional tear-jerkers. This is a great song.

    I especially love this when it says:

    How do you feel when there's no one there
    on the other end of the phone

    It just struck a chord as soon as I read it and songs don't usually feel so personal to me. Everyone has those times when it feels like your luck has run out, and the emotion behind this song is very profound. Especially when there are parts like that that hit home. It would always hurt so much when I would be talking to my boyfriend on the phone and all I would hear is silence, and trying to elicit a conversation just hurt even more. It's like knowing there's nothing to say.

    And how am I the first to comment this song? It's a great song. Unless someone manages in the minute it's taking me to type this...?
