Track Name: Rainy Day
When did life become so hard
Like everything else it gradually sneaks up on you
Well you were so young old seemed so far
I remember when you swore that you'd never wear those shoes
Said you'd never wear those shoes

Then one morning things have changed
The clock runs differently, it skips around
Well you look the same but you look so strange
And look at all them pretty little imperfections that you've found
Said look at what you've found

Everybody once in a while loves a rainy
When it all looks and feels the same
It's so nice to know that some things'll never change
Everybody once in a while loves a dreary day
When there's always something to complain about
It's so nice to know that you've got something to say

You were different you'd agree
You were gonna be the one man to never grow old
Saying, saying nothing bad could happen to me
Ready for the legends and the stories to unfold
I said the stories to be told

Yeah well you were wrong and I'll agree
So maybe that could mean that there's just a little bit more to life
Cause, cause it wasn't you and it wasn't me
It seems my friend once again we were wrong and they were right
We were wrong and they were right and...

Everybody once in a while loves a rainy
When it all looks and feels the same
It's so nice to know that some things'll never change
Everybody once in a while loves a dreary day
When there's always something to complain about
It's so nice to know that you've got something to say

But then you realize
Yeah then you realize
That's when you realize what's changed
But then you realize
I said that's when you realize
That's when you realize everything's the same
Nothing here has changed

So while you're sitting around waiting for life to come together
All the things you're probably missing but you can't tell whether or not
The whole thing's like this or maybe it gets better
Putting one foot 'fore another brother, f*** it and forget her
And the montage it's a collage of a life, it's just a mirage
Of the things that never happen, baby c'mon
Tell me you were only joking just to ramble on
And to keep them gums flapping
I could not tell you everything which I learned through action
Wouldn't believe me even if I did, get the whip a-crackin'
What the hell happened, I can't sing, I'm rapping
I just want to cry but I can't stop laughing
Everybody once in a while I said
Everybody, here I go again
Everybody once in a while loves a rainy day
Oh, everybody once in a while loves a rainy day
Track Name: Body
She's crawling out my window
In the middle of the night
She left behind her pillow
And her shape there by my side

She said something 'bout tomorrow
She said something 'bout her life
I decided not to follow
And decided that was right

I want your body next to my body

Her shadow in the moonlight
Still falls across my mind
And sleeps under the covers
In the space she left behind

And sometimes in the night time
I see footprints in the lawn
But then sunrise plays the villain
And then just like her they're gone

I want your body next to my body

This is not something I could choose
Well this decision came from you
You had your chance
I made mistakes
You locked me out
You walked away
You stayed behind us is the past
Experience has shown us that
Well this is broken this is true
I called you mine oh I still do

I want your body next to my body
Track Name: Sister Agnes
Back of the class, daydreaming drooling on my desk
Filling bubbles to spell your name
Yeah spell your name across my test
I kinda hoped you'd notice

My notebook was full with your first name and my last
I wrote "I love her" in a page long paragraph
On every page to show this

Needed help spelling four letter words
Couldn't find a single bible verse
Love to see you get mad and that's why I curse every day during class
Cause I, oh Agnes

Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I'll take you by the hand
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I'll take you to the holy land
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I love you Sister Agnes

And didn't you wonder how again and again and again
I'd sharpen my pencil at your desk but all my work was done in pen
I kinda hoped you'd notice
And cafeteria and recess I was watching
And I saw you keep your eye on which girls I was touching
You didn't think I'd know this

Spreading rumors that I think are true
Involving me, involving you
Well you are the only woman that I want to do
But I, oh Agnes

Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I'll take you by the hand
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I'll take you to the holy land
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I love you Sister Agnes
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
You know I think that it's worth the risk
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
And so did father Chris
Oh oh, Sister Agnes
I love you Sister Agnes
