when the music rained down my face

Posted: February 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

i remember the day that  Hendrix died

i put out my speakers out on the back porch and cried

the music  rained down on me

the sky was crying too

it felt like everything

changed that day

i don’t know why

but something inside me was missing

i think back

how i’ve changed my ways

since  music rained down my face

how young do you have to be

for music to have such a fierce grip on your soul

that tears  flow from thousands of miles away

for a dead hero you never really knew

except to guide your empty dreams with song

in words that only one generation can understand

towards that special place inside a young heart

where tears fall like rain

on a sunny day

for a  hero

with new magic

who waits in the wings to make you cry
