An Unexpected Rain

Album: The Awakening (2007)
  • First time I saw you
    Back in 1982
    An l.a. bar I've come so far
    In my Kansas dancin shoes
    I'm just a singer and I'm lookin for a song
    Do you want to sing along?
    Two Grey hounds later
    And I'm feelin alright
    I've got to have you
    And it must be tonight
    C'mon back to my place
    Well its really just a room
    But I'll be making some money soon


    Goodbye and thank you
    Oh, my number yeah, please phone
    Two or three weekends on the 405 alone
    You say c'mon and stay
    And when you sing down at the bar
    It will not be so far

    And I tried to do my best
    I never meant to hurt no one
    I was waitin' for my break
    That I knew one day would come
    And I plug in my guitar
    And I look out across the room
    And I dig into my heart
    And I try to sing the truth
    And I know I did my best
    I never meant to hurt no one



    As I recall back in 1982
    I never said goodbye or why
    I just left a note for you
    Then one night I saw you
    Across the road across the dark
    A shamefull spear into my heart

    Your look was haunting an unexpected pain
    I am so sorry for the unexpected rain
    The sadness that you kissed
    The fresh scars on you wrist
    I cant make it go away
    And I tried to do my best
    I never meant to hurt no one
    I was waiting for my break
    That I knew one day would come
    And I plug in my guitar
    And I look out across the room
    And I dig into my heart
    And I try to sing the truth
    And I know I did my best
    I never meant to hurt no one
    No one
    No one
    Good night ladies
    Good night I'm gonna leave you now
    Good night ladies
    Good night I'm gonna leave you now
    Gonna leave you now (good night ladies good night)
    Gonna leave you gonna leave you now (ladies good night) good night (good night ladies good night gonna leave you now)
    Sleep tight. Writer/s: MELISSA ETHERIDGE
