No, I didn’t forget

12:00 am Music, Personal

I haven’t forgotten to post, I just haven’t done it. Honestly, I just didn’t have anything to say.

I came across a song that struck a particular note with me. Today seemed like the perfect day to post the lyrics (especially since I haven’t posted in over two years). The song is called “Right As Rain,” by Courrier, a band out of Austin. I have no idea why I haven’t heard this song before. It was apparently released last year. I grabbed the rest of the album, “A Violent Flame,” and there are some other great songs in there, “Between,” in particular.

Sometimes a song just finds you at the right time, I guess. There are some really beautiful lines in there. For me, it has a beautiful usage of the “right as rain” passage as a double entendre. It’s a fantastic song. The lyrics, and a link to the song on iTunes, are below.

Right As Rain

You were right as rain,
But still it hurts the same
And ever since you left my heart has kept
The time with feverish pace
And now my tired eyes watch the empty skies
To see if something has changed,
But nothing has changed

You can search my heart
If you can search the dark
But I’m afraid that I’ve been anesthetized
by a host of everyday pains
And if these little lies close my heavy eyes
I’m afraid that I won’t awake

Did you feel Time ticking away?
Did you see light flicker and fade?
And now you lie awake,
And you were right as rain,
My love.

You’re the rightaway
Always, but not today
And all this lingering will be the death of me,
The last word in my great escape
Cause when the fire dies, the ashes sing,
“We were saved for love’s sake.”

Did you feel Time ticking away?
Did you see light flicker and fade?
And now you lie awake,
And you were right as rain,
My love, my love.

Did you feel Time ticking away?
Did you see light flicker and fade?

Did you feel Time ticking away?
Did you see light flicker and fade?
And now you lie awake,
And you were right as rain,
My love, my love, my love.

You were right as rain.

    The Amarillo College radio station deserves the credit. I heard the tail end of this song last Thursday. I Googled the lyrics to find out who performed it, but Adele has a song by the same name that was much more popular. Shazam was no help, either. 🙂 Yes, good song! Good album!
