Dancing in the rain

NEWtiveryluckyFlashback to July 6, 2012 …

It rained tonight. In fact, it was a torrential downpour. My friend Emily had scooped me up to take me out for a much-needed girls’ night, and as we drove through sheets of water, the gutters began to overflow and mini-rivers gurgled down the drains around us. Enormous bursts of lightning blazed across the sky like natural fireworks. Undaunted, she popped in some music and beamed at me: “This is a perfect time for me to play you this song,” she said. “It is so you! Every time I hear it I think of you.”

Thank you to my sweet friend for believing in me and for reminding me to dance in the rain rather than drowning in it…

All I need now is a polka-dot umbrella. 🙂

“Dancing in the Rain” by Hilary Weeks

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/ ]

It clouded over on Monday morning

And I’d hoped to wake up to sunshine

Come Tuesday I think I felt it

A little raindrop on top of my head

On Wednesday no mistakin’ it

By Thursday no escaping it

The storm had rolled in

 

I thought about going back to bed

Or reading the book on my nightstand

I considered calling the weather man

Just to ask when it might end

 

I did something you would not have thought

I grabbed my polka-dot umbrella

And I opened the door…

 

And I danced in the rain

I let my dreams know I hadn’t forgotten them

I let my heart take the lead and

I told my hopes to get themselves up again

And I danced, I looked, yes I danced in the rain

I invited my worries to step aside

I needed room to see in front of me

As the raindrops fell on my overcoat

I let ’em roll right off of my back

 

And I waited for the rainbow

Cause Heaven and me we both know

This storm’s gonna pass…

 

And I danced in the rain

I let my dreams know I hadn’t forgotten them

I let my heart take the lead and

I told my hopes to get themselves up again

And I danced, I looked, yes I danced…

 

I danced till my fears washed away

Then I thanked the rain for coming… today

So I could dance in the rain

And let my dreams know I hadn’t forgotten them

 

I danced in the rain

I let my dreams know I hadn’t forgotten them

I let my heart take the lead and

I told my hopes to get themselves up again

And I danced, I looked, yes I danced in the rain

I’m dancing in the rain
