about

The song was inspired by a trip to the hospital to visit my cousin who was going through a rough time health wise.

The theme is sort of a "get well soon" song and to remind her (and everyone going through tough times) that - in my opinion anyway - the bluest skies come after rain.

lyrics

I saw her there in a hospital bed wearing needles and flat on her back
An independent woman facing the unknown
And I watched as the tears rolled down her pale white face as she struggles to say
Its not like me to be out of control
 
Then I stare at the floor and I say
Its gonna be alright
But i can see a storm is brewin' in her eyes
I hope she's up for the fight
 
When the rain start pourin'
Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry
When the rain starts pourin
Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky

The pile of bills on the kitchen table is starting to climb
Her bodies not the only hand out to get her
And she knows that her only daughter needs a mom, she sees the want in her eyes
but her hands are tied until she feels better
 
I stare at the floor and I say
Its gonna be alright
But i can see a storm is brewin' in her eyes
I hope she's up for the fight

When the rain start pourin'
Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry
When the rain starts pourin
Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky

Only God knows why
Good people suffer this way
Maybe to see that the bluest skies come after rain
Stand up to the pain

When the rain start pourin'
Even sturdy mountains can't stay dry
When the rain starts pourin
Just hold on 'til them black clouds pass you by, and you'll find some blue sky

When the rain stops pourin'
When the rain stops pourin'
When the rain stops pourin'
When the rain stops pourin'
Yeah You'll find some blue sky
