about

A song about what it means to be individual after modelling yourself on the expectation of another, namely a girl.

This song was performed live with my band My Kind of Karma on several occasions, though never recorded. Unless a Live version surfaces, this is what I have!

-Isaac

lyrics

If I knew everything about you
don't you think that I would know by now?
If I knew everything about you
don't you think that I would know by now?
there ain't no hurricane going to knock you down
so let it all rain down

I remember a time when your smoke filled up my mind
pools like rainwater trickle down my spine
those rains though not passed, are easing up at last
but I'm still bracing for the weather all the time
because when those rains come down I'm a take what's mine
and let it all rain down

Chorus

if you thought you knew every which way to go
even if I knew different I'd be right in tow
if you claimed you saw Phoenix rise out of the ashes
I'd wait by the fire until the last smoke rise
and claim the smoke was clouds that filled the sky
and let it all rain down

it's the rise fall and scatter of the wind that come and the winds that go again,
rise, fall, and scatter of the winds that come and the winds that go again,
here it goes again
the weight of the water on my head's going to break not bend

Chorus
