Rain on the Sills
Music and lyrics written by Jay Matthes

First verse:
I watched the green grass dance in the sun
from the shade of an oak when the day's work was done
I felt the chill of a westerly wind
I was miles from home when the storm clouds rolled in

The horses they run along the barbwire
The foxes they move through the field
They say no one knows which way the wind will blow
but sometimes I feel like the only one who don't

Second verse:
I walked in wet and I looked 'round the room
Half-open windows and curtains in bloom
The front had pushed forward on over the hill
Left my things on the floor and rain on the sills
