Early Mornin' Rain

"Early Mornin' Rain"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

I hear it hit the roof, go down the eaves and out the drain

Got beautiful dreams still in my brain

Don’t’ want to get out of bed, when the night turns into day

Just want to listen to that early mornin’ rain

Early mornin’ rain, when I’ve been up all night

Early mornin’ rain, just wanna hold you tight

I’ll call into work just so I can stay

And listen to that early mornin’ rain

I see the lightnin’ flash through my window pane

I’m half asleep and half a world away

I need a day at home to keep from goin’ insane

Need to listen to that early mornin’ rain

Repeat chorus

To feel brand new, all I need is you

And the gentle sound of early mornin’ rain

The rain background sound is one of those cassette tapes you get at those trendy new age stores they have in malls that are meant to be soothing and help you relax and sleep.

Even though it would've been perfectly legal for me to do so, I chose to replace the 'g' with an apostrophe out of respect for one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Gordon Lightfoot, so as to not entirely copy the title of his excellent song Early Morning Rain.

Perhaps we've all felt this way before, but it's always a bittersweet experience whatever you decide to do or not do when you feel this way. My parents have always told me "only you can make yourself feel guilty," which is good to remind yourself of, albeit easier said than done.
