Afternoon Prayer III

Afternoon Prayer III

When it rains, it pours
But you didn’t even notice
It ain’t rainin’ anymore
It’s hard to breathe when all you know is
The struggle of stayin’ above the risin’ water line

Well, the sky has finally opened
The rain and wind stopped blowin’
But you’re stuck out in the same ol’ storm again
You hold tight to your umbrella
Well, darlin’, I’m just tryin’ to tell ya
That there’s always been a rainbow
Hangin’ over your head


If you could see what I see
You’d be blinded by the colors
Yellow, red, and orange, and green
And at least a million others

So tie up the boat, take off your coat
And take a look around


‘Cause the sky has finally opened
The rain and wind stopped blowin’
But you’re stuck out in the same ol’ storm again
You hold tight to your umbrella
But, darlin’, I’m just tryin’ to tell ya
That there’s always been a rainbow
Hangin’ over your head
