BLESSIN' THE BLUES

All day rain. Dusk the same.
Power's off. Silence is too near.
Looks like another all-night rain.
Nothin' but raindrops in my ear.

Melancholy drops in slow surrender.
Oh, I know I'll get through someway.
Way too heavy to sleep,I just remember -
times once passed, they cannot stay.

Chorus
It's no news - I'm blessin' the blues.
Sometimes everything falls like fallin' rain.
Sometimes everything sighs and shares the pain.
Sooner or later, the sun will shine.
Sooner or later comes a better time.
It's not news. Blessin' the blues.
Blessin' the blues.

Some times are meant for singin' the blues.
Me and memory singin' our song.
Rumpled hair, and rain in my shoes.
Sound on the roof like heart gone wrong.

Singin' out through another rainy night.
Lettin' the fallin' rain wash through my soul.
It's an old baptism on the way to Light.
Season of sad, that helps to make us whole.

Chorus
It's no news - I'm blessin' the blues.
Sometimes everything's washed with fallin' rain.
Sometimes it calms the fever and soothes the pain.
Sooner or later, the sun will shine again.
I'll sing in the rain, and bless the blues till then.
It's not news - blessin' the blues.
It's no news - just blessin' the blues.
