lyrics

I had an off day so I took a day off
Called in to work and I gave 'em a cough
I drank by the river, had a chat with my liver
Weren't we the luckiest man alive?

I sat on a swingset and thought of those things that
Were ten times as good when I shared them with her
Like coffee, ice cream, Tate Modern museum
And chasing those bats after dark

CHORUS:
I find it kind of strange
Though she says nothing's changed
It always rains on Sundays
It always rains on Sundays
It always rains on Sundays
Since she's been away

As we often did we just walked around
and marveled at all of the things that we found
The tide was so low so that we could go below
And walk on the dry river bed
We picked the best shells and stones
The ones that sparkled and shone
We kissed and we wondered whose were those bones?
We saw tucked away some cardboard hideaways
Homeless houses with river views

My room had become our aquarium
The world outside, our planetarium
When we went to the steam fair
It was like a dream there
In the carnival air we just didn't have a care
But now she's gone off to New York City
Temporarily to study
I hope she makes friends and finds company

But in the end I hope mostly that she'll come back to me
Come back to me
In the end I hope mostly that she'll come back to me
(Chorus repeats)

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
