  • The weatherman said today
    There’s a slight chance of rain
    I had to laugh to myself,
    Cause on any given day it’s been a hurricane
    Knocking down my power lines
    Shaking my foundation
    Breaking all my window panes

    I’ll build again and I’ll send you a letter
    Self-addressed so you know
    Exactly where to go
    Please don’t reply, just arrive
    With the future in your eyes I adore
    Show me what they’re for

    This is inevitable, oh
    When will you believe
    This is inevitable, oh
    Time may turn the leaves
    It’s so inevitable that we
    Will eventually see
    Another spring again
    On that you can depend

    Somebody thinks they won a lifetime
    In your sun
    Fancy restaurants, cocaine nights
    Thinking you’re the one
    To give him every touch
    But I know so much better
    It’s a matter of a moment
    Til you break into a run

    You’re gonna try with all your might
    To forget
    But like a ghost I appear
    To whisper in your ear
    Then I’ll see you smile
    As you dial all the numbers
    Memorized, filed away
    For this very day

    This is inevitable, oh
    When will you believe
    This is inevitable, oh
    Time may turn the leaves
    But it’s inevitable that we
    Will eventually see
    Another spring again
    On that you can depend

    This is inevitable, oh
    As long as we still breathe
    This is inevitable, oh
    The tide may move the sea
    But it’s inevitable that we
    Will eventually see
    These waters rise again
    On that you can depend

    You can try to deny it baby
    You can try, you can try
    You can try to deny it baby
    You can try your best

    This is inevitable, oh
    When will you believe
    This is inevitable, oh
    Time may turn the leaves
    But it’s inevitable that we
    Will eventually see
    Another spring again
    On that you can depend

    This is inevitable, oh
    As long as we still breathe
    This is inevitable, oh
    The tide may move the sea
    But it’s inevitable that we
    Will eventually see
    These waters rise again
    On that you can depend Writer/s: JASON SELLARDS, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, SCOTT HOFFMAN
