Melissa Etheridge – An Unexpected Rain lyrics
First time I saw you
Back in 1982
An la bar
I've come so far
In my Kansas dancing shoes
I'm just a singer
And I'm looking for a song
Do you want to sing along?

Two greyhounds later
And I'm feeling alright
I've got to have you
And it must be tonight
Come on back to my place
Well, it's really just a room
But I'll be making some money soon

Goodbye and thank you
Oh, my number, yeah- please phone
Two or three weekends
On the 405 alone
You say come on and stay
And when you sing down at the bar
It will not be so far

And I tried to do my best
I never meant to hurt no-one
I was waiting for my break
That I knew one day would come
And I'd plug in my guitar
And I'd look out across the room
And I'd dig into my heart
And I'd try to sing the truth
And I know I did my best
I never meant to hurt no-one

As I recall
Back in 1982
I never said goodbye or why
I just left a note for you
Then one night I saw you
Across the road,
Across the dark
A shameful spear into my heart

Your look was haunting
An unexpected pain
I am so sorry
For the unexpected rain

The sadness that you kissed
The fresh scars on your wrist
I can't make it go away


Good night ladies
Good night
I'm gonna leave you now,
Good night ladies
Good night
I'm gonna leave you now.
(Sleep tight)
