Song Description

This is the first co-write effort with Keith Taylor. The song is dedicated to the Aurora Colorado Batman shooting victims and hopefully might deter future incidents.

Story Behind the Song

The second line of the song was the concept...'tragedy poured out from the knight'. The rain represents all the recent tragedies we've had.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Excellent job overall. I really enjoyed listening to this song. Great song, great performance, and great mix. The guitar tones are excellent and in tune. The vocal is just perfect and the harmonies are right there, mixed perfectly and in perfect tune as well. Nice work!! A great listen for me.

Lyrics

In the gentle Colorado air
Tragedy poured out from the knight
Fear seen through the tears of those spared
Leaving us wounded again, wondering why

(chorus)
I know its got to rain sometimes
Why'd it have to rain so hard
Make it stop, we've seen enough for awhile
Oh God, why did it rain so hard

Oh oh oh

What about dying makes a man take
More pain than life can afford
We only have two hands to pray
Why send angels dreams when they....don't need anymore

(repeat chorus)

Whoa oh oh
Why did it have to rain so hard

How many scars do we think we need
Injuries aren't just the ones we see
How many lifetimes cut down like weeds
If this is what freedom costs, are we really free

(repeat chorus)

Oh God why did it rain so hard

(outro)
In the gentle Colorado air
Tragedy poured out from the knight
