Verse 1
Hello, Mr. Darkcloud
Never thought that we would meet so soon
Never thought I'd bundle up in June
Funny how the fog rolls
Funnier that I'd know who to blame
Never thought I'd have to own this pain
If all that's good and true comes from heaven
Then what's a girl to do when it rains?

Chorus
And I'm sayin'
Why, why, why, why?
I'm shakin' a fist in the dark,
and I'm askin'
Why, why, why, why?
Why does it keep getting harder
To say thanks?

Verse 2
Even fields of flowers
Dressing in their best because of You
Knowing they are blessed to be in bloom
But what about November
When the air is cold and wet winds blow
Do they understand why they can't grow?

(Chorus)
Bridge
And I could not pretend
to know the difference
Between the storms You send
and those I find
And I'm askin'

(Chorus)

    General CommentSometimes it seems dangerous to write a song like this which questions the Almighty and His ways, especially as it doesn't seem very encouraging. But we've all been through it, so it's a necessary song.

    It's a simple frustration-filled song about the troubles she's facing in life and how she doesn't understand why it's happening to her if God is supposed to be good.
    And then the line "Why does it keep getting harder to say thanks?" really hits home. Normally she had things to thanks the Father for, yet in the midst of all the troubles she faces, she doesn't know what to thank Him for anymore.

    Love this song - the music and her voice is so lovely.
