:: THIS SONG'S STORY ::

(Written Dec 27, 2014 - Jan 5, 2015)

It was a struggle to find a title for the album that would become Sundrops. I had a handful of titles but none were jumping out at me as the one. I knew I wanted something that reflected these themes of sunshine and rain, but I couldn't make up my mind.

So Sundrops was the last song written for the album Sundrops. I wrote a couple variations of the first two verses and the chorus and wasn't sure if I had something worth pursuing or not. I shared a demo with a couple close friends and they encouraged me to keep going with it.

Over the next few days the song grew on me and I became obsessed with finishing it. I kept moving words around and polishing the thing. I took my notebook to bed and wrote down lines in the dark in the middle of the night. Trying not to rustle the paper too much and wake any sleeping people up.

When I finished the song I knew I had a title for the album. I like that this song's subject (not being able to make up your mind!) was informed by where I was with titling the record. I'm a little like the weather sometimes.

lyrics

:: LYRICS ::

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time

I'm getting thirsty I hope it rains soon
Been waiting on a cloud since late last June
My lips are dry my arm's so tired
From holding this cup up to the sky

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time

It's been a long winter damp and dark
I'm waiting on spring and a brand new start
Like a firefly caught in a mason jar
Keep a little bit of sun inside your heart

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops it could rain or shine
Better get the laundry off the clothesline

Someday's I feel the same
I don't know if I don't want to
Be the sun or the rain
I don't know and I don't want to
Can't make up my mind
I don't know but maybe better
Let it rain and shine

Some wish for sun others for rain
All our wishes blowing up around the weathervane
Some come true, some do not
So I'm wishing to be happy with what I got

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
Gonna put the laundry back on the line

Sundrops a break in the clouds
Sundrops might dry us out
Sundrops once upon a time
It's raining like a nursery rhyme

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time
