They come in like the rain
They come in like the rain
Unwelcome, like the water flooding its way
Through the underground
Seeping in and tugging at the corners of my mouth
And I pack my umbrella for another day

I knew a girl who told me
She told me "you don't want to know
You don't want to know all they've done to me"
When she was done crying she just cracked a joke
She cracked a joke
And she has a smile for every thunderstorm
She has a smile for every thunderstorm

But mostly the days carry light
Oh and you tried running away
Oh and you tried running back home again
But when you just sit tight
It's just up and down
And up and down and up again

A good friend of mine likes to say
"Life's so hard when you're not in bed"
And mostly I'd agree with him
Yeah there are some days
When you peer off the brisbane bridge
And think sweet thoughts about the river
Yeah there are some days when the past
Is just a maze where you lost yourself
Do you feel you might waste away?

But mostly the days carry light
Oh and you tried running away
Oh and you tried running back home again
But when you just sit tight
It's just up and down
And up and down and up again

And I pack my umbrella for another day..

    General CommentThis is about holding on and waiting out the storm when life is a bitch. There will be days when everything is shit, but don't run and don't give up because those days that carry light make like worth living.
