1. Rainy Day LA

From the recording Songs That I Have Written


It’s a drizzly Monday evening 
As your work flies you away
How the storm sounded from your ceiling 
As we cuddled and kissed yesterday
Pack me up tight 
With your suits and your ties
Cleverness cracked our smiles
A simple soft goodnight 
And a ‘have a safe flight’ 
For a week from rainy day L.A.
How we laughed and we joked revealing
Small little pieces of us
Found it easy to stop concealing 
And allowing to give into trust
All I can do 
Is keep thinking of you
Envious of New York
The sunny autumn air
I wish I could be there
Jealous Tuesday, rainy day L.A.
It’s so hard to explain this feeling
Crazy excitement, cool calm
Like a prophet in awe and kneeling
I’m rejoicing by humming a psalm
Cryptic in verse
I don’t know which is worse
Too much said or a song
Well, I’ll keep it dry tonight
And like lightning I will write
Stay in Wednesday, rainy day L.A.
‘Cause all I can do
Is keep thinking of you
Envious of New York
Well, it’s just a few more days
Till you bring some sun this way
And dry up rainy day L.A.
Melt all of the clouds away Sunday
It’s been a week-long rainy day L.A.
