lyrics

I remember when we never watched the weather
when we knew the sun would shine on us
as long as we’re together
we were together
adrift within the season
and when the sun refused to shine
you got yours and I got mine
it was over
and then the storm came

There were days when it all seemed neverending
when all you could hear was the forecasts, the fear,
and the sound of cloudline bending,
it bent below the sky
and held our face to the dirt mound
another loved one washed away
another death, another day
in the outfield
(the storm kept comin')

and I think it’s gonna get worse before it gets worser
my mother used to tell me so before the flood dispersed her
someday the waves will take me home
and I won’t feel so damn alone

We were betting that we’d never see tomorrow
and when tomorrow came we would bet again
for every day that followed
the rain was thick as chains
and our friends were all swept elsewhere
if there’s a god or two above
then they aren’t losin’ any love
for the leftovers
(no they're not)

and I think it’s gonna get worse before it gets worser
my mother used to tell me so before the flood dispersed her
the rain keeps coming thick as tears
cuz they’re all gone and I’m still here

I remember when we couldn’t watch the weather
when the sun refused to shine on us
as long as we’re together
I couldn’t see a future
Couldn’t see a foot beyond the horizon

and I swear if there’s a god above he’s not losing any any any love
I’ll pull the sky down with my bare hands I’ll take all the light I can stand
The sun ain’t comin' back, the sun ain’t comin' back
the storm is raging
