What Have You Done With The Rain?

about

The first verse stemmed from a glimpse of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and the rest sort of followed. A pretty little tune that asks more than it answers.

lyrics

And what have you done with the rain?
And what has it done to you?
The only thing I can't explain is what it's doing to you.

Starlit tables, beneath a cloudy sky,
Bathed in headlights of the cars passing by.

Woke up cold this morning, to the sound of a song:
Visions of places I dreamed that I'd never, ever, gone.

And what have you done with the rain?
And what has it done to you?
The only thing I can't explain is what it's doing to you.

Empty bottles fill the air.
Houses filled with no-one there.
Silent speakers loudly blare
Music that no-one can hear.

And what have you done with the rain?

Starlit tables, beneath a cloudy sky,
(What have you done with the rain?)
Bathed in headlights of the cars passing by.
(What has it done to you?)
Woke up cold this morning to the sound of this very song,
(The only thing I can't explain)
And I had the visions of places I've never, ever, gone.
(Is what it's doing to you.)

What have you done?
(To you.)
What have you done, with the rain?
(To you.)
What have you done?
And the piano takes it away.
