Rain On Monday

Rain On Monday
 (Chorus is in bold, Bridge in italics)

The skies are dark and I’m swept away
Under the thumb on some distant day
Take my bruises, come through the pain
Find my hope come back to life again

And I feel it’s gonna rain, on Monday
But I won’t feel blue, coz I’ll make it through
Feel it’s gonna change, so I’m smiling
Coz the skies will clear again

I place the pieces and make them fit
Took so long to make sense of it
Spread my wings and I fly away
Leave my troubles to yesterday

Times are hard, but I just keep on smiling, just smiling
Times are hard, but I know I’ll make it through
Times are hard, but I just keep on fighting
Times are hard, but I let them slip right through (you know it’s up to you)

Feel the silence deserting me
I don’t need any one to rescue me
Watch as shadows are torn apart
Feel the music inside my heart

Oh, that was wonderful. Do you have a tune in mind? I'd love to sing this, or hear it, it's really fantastic.

Thanks to everyone who asked about a tune - yes it does have one and it's on my list of "to do" for recording in the near future - so will try and visit y'all and let you know when its up

It's unusually happy for me this one - full of hope :)

A song for a Magpie prompt! I love it. Not sure if anyone else has thought of this....
Now, share the tune with us? Then the picture would really come to life, I think. :)

Lyrically lovely! Argent's chords work really well actually. I'd chuck in an Fm and finish on a C......lol
