Lyrics

I can see the clouds are gathering in the distance
I can feel the wind is shifting overhead
The atmosphere is dark and looking angry
Something’s adrift, I can smell it in the air

Suddenly a perfect storm is raging
And I’m overwhelmed with things I can’t control
Lost at sea with only my emotions
I just want to find my way back home

But here on the leeward side, behind a shelter I can hide
That I know is gonna keep me dry
On the horizon I can see a rainbow staring back at me
And the rays of hope that reach across the sky

And I know it’s raining somewhere
But here the skies are blue
I know it’s raining somewhere
Come what may, I will make it through

Now it’s time for living in the moment
‘Cause no one really knows when skies will change
If only we could bottle up the sunshine
And save it all to brighten gloomy days

And I know it’s raining somewhere
But here the skies are blue
I know it’s raining somewhere
Come what may, I will make it through

And I’ll reach within – To find the strength to turn the storm away
And then begin – To cast aside the darkness of the day

And here on the leeward side, behind a shelter I can hide
That I know is gonna keep me dry
On the horizon I can see a rainbow staring back at me
And the rays of hope that reach across the sky

And I know it’s raining somewhere
But here the skies are blue
I know it’s raining somewhere
