"When It Rains" as written by and Roshaun Omowale Clarke Troy Barrington Mclean....
Like a deer in the headlights, I stood frozen in my tracks
And the weight of the news, It nearly broke my back
It was late September, and I remember oh so well
I put a rose in the bible and placed it on my shelf

Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now the things I never knew before

Back then when we were seventeen
Time was on our side
Holes in our jeans and a pocket full of dreams
The future was Friday night
And we would hangout down by the river bend
Singing our favorite songs
Laughin and drinkin, smokin and smilin
Now those days are gone
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now the things I know for shore

Like a deer in the headlights, I stood frozen in my tracks
And the weight of you not here nearly broke my back
And the tears they fell like a monsoon
Underneath the cold fall moon
Somehow God put his hands on your shoulders
Way too, way too soon

Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didn't know now
No I didn't know now
What I knew before
