Listen here:


I like to be there when the sun goes down At the home plate of the ballpark of my hometown And an autumn breeze wipes the bleachers clean And the whole town’s home with their tv screens

Well these children can heal their own scars These drunks can all crash their own cars And a young man can travel the world and still not go anywhere

I like to be there when the sun goes down When the wind grows cold and there’s not a sound I’ve always had enough and always had my share Now I don’t even need to go anywhere

Rain is falling it’s Saturday night Birds are looking for shelter with all their might And you and I are laughing about yesterday’s fight

You hold my hand and you sip your beer The music’s soft and we sit so near You and I are laughing about yesterday’s tears

Funny how a sudden rain Doesn’t seem to ever change a thing Funny how those sweet clouds keep on rolling Funny how tonight it feels so right And yesterday the whole world was exploding

You kiss my neck and you whisper my name You light two cigarettes with the same flame And you and I we’re just laughing about yesterday’s pain

I’ve got nowhere to be in the morning it’s true Except for in bed with my arm around you And I’ll hold you so tight I’ll hold you so close You and I will be laughing about yesterday’s woes

Funny how a sudden rain Doesn’t seem to ever change a thing Funny how those sweet clouds keep on rolling Funny how tonight it feels so right And yesterday the whole world was exploding

You and I are such a strange organism We feed on suffering and maybe that’s the reason We make each other so mad But right now wouldn’t feel so good if then hadn’t felt so bad

Funny how a sudden rain Doesn’t seem to ever change a thing Funny how those sweet clouds keep on rolling Funny how tonight it feels so right And yesterday the whole world was exploding
