No one told me it was going to rain today,
I turn my face down from the sky,
Something broke inside my heart today,
Christmas presents on the day she died.
Crippled dreams are never mentioned,
Broken things that never heal,
Mother said for me to give it time,
Tonight I cannot help but cry,
February twenty-nine.

In a world of dying children,
Rain never seems to cease,
I will hope for things unseen now,
One day my heart will be at peace.
I said I loved her and she knew it,
Whispered softly to the sky tonight,
She is warm and safe in Heaven,
In the loving arms of Jesus Christ.

There is a place that we call heaven,
A place where children never cry,
where you are never cold or hungry,
a place where you cannot go blind.
I turn my face up to the sky now,
I wipe the tears from my eyes,
Thank you God se lives forever,
February twenty-nine.

    General Commentthis song is about Reese Roper (the lead singer/lyricist)'s grandmother dying. he was really sad during this time, and used the lyrics for this band instead of Five Iron Frenzy, the band that he and the members of brave saint saturn are in, because they were 'too dark'. well i think they're just peachy. this is a really good band.

    General CommentThe poem being read in the background is "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" by Dylan Thomas. It fits rather well, given that Thomas is writing about the death of his father. and that is Thomas's actual reading of the poem.
