about

It rained in Berlin last summer, for days. a monsoon like rainstorm. The streets of Berlin were flooded. People literally swimming in the streets. This title had been in my head for a while. What to do when things fall apart? Personally, globally, emotionally. A melancholy, reflective mood. Personal to the universal. The small to the big. Courageously throwing yourself into the unknown, despite the fear.

lyrics

WHAT TO DO IN THE RAIN

It’s been 24 hours since it started to rain - I’m in my room just listening since it came
Been stilling my thirst - enjoying the sound - when the raindrops burst I feel the ground
Been dreaming out loud - stars on the ceiling - my thoughts in music - brushstrokes of feeling

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

A universe in my kitchen - rolling streams of heaven’s tears indecipherable as dreams
The water of life - cleaning the streets - oh who am I - will you hear my cry
I wake myself from dreaming - half expecting - Noah’s arc to pick me up
But that’s never gonna happen - ’cause there’s no place - that’s dry and safe if you wanna escape

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

We are all drowning in our lives of things - things
More and more we’re losing sight - of what is real and what is right
I storm down the stairs - relentless and charged - full of fear but I don’t care
I’m ready to go - full power - catapult myself out of my tower

’Cause I’m ready to own it - what is to come - the intuition is never wrong
This is the life - I learn to live it slower - a shift of planes - ooh it’s never over
I meet myself - love and light - the part of me that never dies
Darling please - hand me my crown - I am jumping - I’m ready to drown

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

There’s really nothing to it - just do it - you can learn to swim right through it
Over and over - reborn each moment - I forget my name and get back in the rain
