Sunshine After the Rain – (Plato’s Groove & Act of Congress 2006)

Wanting, dreaming, aching for something hurts.  Yet foolish faith remains nonetheless.

Your heart has been aching with hopes long deferred
Unrequited, not spoken, unnamed
But give no room to doubt when the dust settles out
There will be sunshine after the rain

Looking for sunshine after the rain
Hoping for laughter after the pain
Waiting for sunlight to show
Through the dark clouds – – I know – –
Longing for sunshine after the rain.

There is a space between wanting and having your wish
The desire brings some joy and some pain
Yet it moves one along, though the journey be long
Trusting in sunshine after the rain

Looking for sunshine after the rain
Hoping for laughter after the pain
Waiting for sunlight to show
Through the dark clouds – – So low – –
Desperate for sunshine after the rain.

When your soul has been shaken you feel like a fool
Energy wasted your efforts in vain
Listen child please do not fear for the master is near
Bringing you sunshine after the rain

Looking for sunshine after the rain
Hoping for laughter after the pain
After waiting for sunlight to show
Through the dark clouds – – We’ll go – –
Walking in sunshine after the rain.
