Alone In The Rain [SINGLE]

by Substantial

1, 2… 1, 2, 3, 4! VERSE 1 (Substantial) Whenever I work hard as hell It feel like the more times I fail People will flee until you succeed So I just roll by myself A lonely walk in the rain Pain is clouding my brain If I don’t figure it out, then there is no doubt That I’ll go insane Meditation is my medicine For therapy I get a pen And scribble away ‘til I get away When wickness won’t let me win The healing effect that writing has Been keeping me on a righteous path Defeating the beast, to keep me at peace The days I felt my life was bad HOOK Why do I (2x) Feel like a slave? I don’t know (2x) If you’re feelin my pain. I guess I’ve (2x) Got to be brave It’s so cold (2x) Alone in the rain REPEAT HOOK VERSE 2 (Substantial) Not an inch of you’s dry ‘Cause you’re soaked in your sorrow There’s no reason to cry There’s still hope for tomorrow (2x) Hold on… as if my life depended on it And it does So I gotta fight, can never forfeit Push comes to shove I gotta rise, no longer dormant Cover my mind as thoughts are sorted Fighting to shine though clouds are forming HOOK BRIDGE (Stephanie Gayle) In mind the forcast is a cloudy one (so alone) Hoping there’s a slight chance for a little sun (so alone) Looking out my window waiting for a change (so alone) Cause the past few days have been heavy rain Though I know that stormy weather never last The view from the inside has skewed my forecast so… I have to find the day and chase the clouds away Paint a view of hues instead of shades of grey VERSE 3 (Substantial) Strugglin daily Reaching new heights, look around rarely Maybe cuz I don’t want it to scare me Failure’s easy, winning is scary Oh you knew, why I ain’t tell me? Wishin my poppa would’ve prepared me Would’ve been great. Why do I carry All of this weight. Can’t let it impare me. Nah! HOOK OUTRO (Substantial) Not an inch of you’s dry ‘Cause you’re soaked in your sorrow There’s no reason to cry There’s still hope for tomorrow
