The 3 Day Lyrical Challenge

0F29BB52-A73A-42D7-B04F-5824756D1EB0

It’s day 2 of the 3 Day Lyrical Challenge.

Today’s hit is from the late Chris Cornell,  called Sunshower. To me, it conveys that there’s always room for us to grow, to ascend. That we can be strong, able to sit in our grief and desperation and not be consumed by it. Passing through, like a gentle, cleansing rain. It will be ok. The lyrics feel beautifully raw to me. Rest In peace Chris Cornell.

                  “Sunshower”

Dark as roses, fine as sand
Feel your healing and your sting again
I hear you laughing and my soul is saved
On forgotten graves you cry

Crawl like ivy up my spine
Through my nerves and into my eyes
Cuts like anguish
Or recollections of better days gone by

But its all right
When you’re caught in pain
And you feel the rain come down
It’s all right
When you find your way
Then you see it disappear
It’s all right
Though your gardens grey
I know all your graces
Someday will flower
In the sweet sunshower

Eyes like oceans so far away
A feather trail to a better way
Worried mornings turn into days
Then into worried nights

But its all right
When you’re all in pain
And you feel the rain come down
Oh it’s all right
When you find your way
Then you see it disappear
Oh it’s all right
Though your gardens gray
I know all your graces
Someday will flower
Oh in the sweet sunshower
Oh in the sweet sunshower
In the sweet sunshower

I know all your graces
Someday will flower
In the sweet sunshower
And its all right
All you’ll be you are today
Are today
It’s all right
All you’ll be you are today
Are today………Are today……….Are Today…… Are today………Are today……
