I found myself seeking out this track yesterday with the passing of a friend. I honestly don't know what to say or feel this week, I'm just numb...

Standing in the pouring rain,
Watching the house burn down.
All those dreams gone up in flames
wrapped in the arms of friends gathered round
Once you were showered with pearls
You’d hung gold from your ear
But every day’s another day
Had the chance and lost it here


This day shone so bright
As morning rose
Came down like thunder
A little cruel as these things go


Still water runs so deep, so much time for your goals
Wipe those black tears running down your face
From eyes penciled in with kohl
Sure you might find yourself,
impoverished of soul
Trying to sort it all ain’t easy,
Looking out at nowhere left to go


This day shone so bright
As morning rose
Came down like thunder
A little cruel as these things go
A little cruel as these things go


The highway rolls before you now,
twilight drawing near
Washed out blue sky fading fast,
Roadside bars are pumping beer
Talk about your destiny, you can watch it unfurl
Stopped just shy of giving up,
like fallen prey in a lonely world.

This day shone so bright
As morning rose
Came down like thunder
A little cruel as these things go
A little cruel as these things go
