House of Rain
House of Rain Edit.mp3 1.4MB
When I first moved into my house, there was a Waldorf elementary school on the other side of the fence. (It's since been converted to a public school.) The kids would hang out and play and sing in the morning, and sometimes when I stepped outside they would talk to me.
One day, they were hanging on the fence, four or five of them squeezed together in a row, and one of them said, "Hey Mister! Your house is like rain!" I turned and looked at the house's pale blue paint, and thought, yes, it is.

House of Rain - Lyrics

I need steady and strong walls around me
When I live in a house of rain
It shivers and shakes in the weather
Water falls in knotted sheets
I soak till my head is so heavy
