  1. You're the Rain

"You're the Rain" began with me noodling around and the words, I'm on fire, surfaced and then, you're the rain and I developed the song over the course of about two months. I tend to write that way, getting a lyric and melody locked down then later coming back to it and finishing the lyrics and sometimes adding a bridge. My last edit added the word "rendezvous", that felt right to me....

Lyrics

" You’re the Rain”
By: Rick Landers

I’m sitting here haphazardly
Cross-legged on the floor
You’re sitting there smoking your Ideals
You’re conjuring up some game of chance
To even up the score
I’m thinking I’ll high tail it out the door

But then you tell me that we’ll never be the same
Then you say that you’ll be true
You say that you will love me
Just like I love you
But you’re nowhere near the question
You haven’t got a clue

And I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
Yeah, I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
You’re the rain

I’m feeling low, you’re getting high
Our same-old, once again
In your way you’re as pretty as the morn’
But your Cracker Barrel smile shines of Seven Deadly Sins
My eyes drawn and quartered

Thinking you might ask me to pretend again
Then you say, you say that you’ll be true
You say that you will love me
Just like I love you
But you’re nowhere near the answer
You still don’t have a clue

And I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
Yeah, I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
You’re the rain

(Bridge)

You’re smiling then crying I’m really not quite sure
You spread your wings, offering me a deal
I’m thinking I might steal you
with my one-line Cool Hand Luke’s
You open up your arms and smile
Then tell me I’m no good

But then you the say the same damn things
You say that you’ll be true
You say that you will love me
Just like I love you
But you still don’t have an answer
There’ll be no rendezvous

And I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
Yeah, I feel like I’m on fire
And you’re the rain
You’re the rain
