"Soft Rains Of April" as written by Pal Waaktaar and Magne (mags) Furuholmen....
The soft rains of April are over
The soft rains of April are over, over
Anybody home now
I am on the phone now, please

The soft rains of April are over
The ferry across the water to Dover, over
Anybody home now
I am on the phone, oh I'd like to go back
Is it raining back home
I'm so alone
Just got up today
And my thoughts are miles away
With you

Well, they gave me four years
Three more to go
Keep writing letters
Time's passing so slow

The soft rains of April are over
The soft rains of April are over
Over

    General CommentBeautiful Song. Just Imagine being in the shoes of the main character. The music in the middle of the song is just perfect for the dark mood

    General CommentA common theme on Scoundrel Days is the band writing about leaving loved ones when they left for England to progress the band. I think Pal had a girlfriend back in Norway and many of the songs are about leaving her. This is basically about phoning home, getting no answer and being homesick.

    General CommentI figured it was a guy who is in jail, calling home-- what with the part about being given 4 years and having 3 more to go. I love this song!
