I always sleep so much better when it’s raining
There’s something 'bout the rhythm as the water hits the pane
I could stay in bed all God damn day, and sweetly waste away
Cause I’m blind to all the good you see, and prefer a fine tragedy

When all is well I get nervous, something’s missing
If only you could tell me it’s okay, and I listen, cause it already is
Oh

The air grows thin as summer fades
I miss, I taste
The old crisp and color autumn days appear in my view
cause this blue, you caught the splendor that’s been staring me
in my face
and the spectrum of the colors just change into blue

When all is well I get nervous, something’s missing
If only you could tell me it’s okay, and I listen, cause it
already is

and it’s all true, and good and merry
cause you see through the tears
and they come every night
without reason meaning why

ah oh oh

When all is well I get nervous, something’s missing
If only you could tell me it’s okay, and me listen, cause it
already,
All is well, and I know it, when I see you
you don’t need to tell me it’s okay
cause I believe that it already is
already is
already is

I always sleep so much better when it’s raining

    General CommentI think it could mean that she is always worrying that something bad will happen when everything is okay. she is more at ease when something bad is going on becuase she figures it cant get much worse. shes afraid that the higher things are the lower they can go, and her friend/lover is always there to comfort her because he/she understands her and is there to help. i think this is one of those songs that have more than one meaning and those meanings are completely different to everyone who listens.

    General CommentThis song vividly expresses the constant need for tragedy, and how it's a preference to have things be more destroyed, dark, and upsetting rather than having light surround you all the time.
    Vanessa has expressed in concert how "melancholy can be so comforting sometimes".
    I love this song, it would've been cool to see it on Heroes and Thieves :3

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are a little off. I'm not sure I got it completely right either, but here it goes:

    I always sleep so much better when it's raining
    There's something 'bout the rhythm as the water hits the pane
    I could stay in bed all goddamn day, and sweetly waste away
    'Cause I'm blind to all the good you see, and prefer a fine tragedy

    When all is well I get nervous, something's missing
    If only you could tell me it's okay, and I'd listen, 'cause it already is
    Oh

    The air grows thin as summer fades
    I miss, I taste
    The old crisp and color autumn days appear in my view
    'cause this gloom, it coats the splendor that's been staring me
    in my face
    and the spectrum of colors bleeds into blue

    When all is well I get nervous, something's missing
    If only you could tell me it's okay, and I'd listen, 'cause it
    already is

    And you're such a good man
    'cause you see through the tears
    and they come every night
    without reason or meaning why

    ah oh oh

    When all is well I get nervous, something's missing
    If only you could tell me it's okay, and I'd listen, 'cause it
    already...

    All is well, and I know it, when I see you
    you don't need to tell me it's okay
    'cause I believe that it already is
    already is
    already is

    I always sleep so much better when it's raining
