Rainy Day

from by David Thompson



We used to fall in love
Without understanding why
But innocence was enough
To keep our growing faith alive
So honesty shined through
And it overcame our lust
Always finding something new
To share with the one we'd trust
We used to trust

But it was raining
It was a rainy day
But it was raining
And it's you
Who'd never see us fall

And we used to laugh aloud
With the people we'd call friends
And we could forget about
Our stupid opinions we could not defend
And we used to see our lives
As a gift on each new day
Together our dreams could thrive
'Cause we took the time to pray
We used to pray

And it's you
Who'd always see me fall

So now I stand outside
But I have nowhere left to go
The clouds here bleed red wine
And they drench me 'til I'm stoned
And I see the rivers flood
And the currents are gaining strength
They're washing all the earth
And just maybe all our faith
Our tarnished faith

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
