Weatherman - Lyrics

The weatherman came knocking on my door
Said there's gonna be a cloudy overcast with a chance of storm

I've got the sun in my pocket and I want you to take it
Put it in your heart where the clouds can't block it
That's what he said
And I said no sir, 'cause I'm doin' just fine
The sky is clear and I can feel the sun shine
And he said let me know if you change your mind

You've gotta learn how to shine
'Cause the days get cold and dark sometimes
And you're gonna need the sun to survive
You've gotta learn how to shine
'Cause when the sun goes down it's the dark of night
And you're gonna need to shine your light

Woke up to a cloud hanging over me
Rain is coming down over only me
I see people everywhere but they don't share my pain
They can't see my clouds they can't feel my rain
I wear a smile that's fake 'cause I'm too proud to cry
Pretend the weather's great 'cause it's easier to lie
I don't know when the weather will clear
I don't know how much more I can bear

I've gotta learn how ton shine
'Cause I don't know when the storm will pass by
Or by then if I'll even have a sound mind
I've gotta learn how to shine
'Cause I'm tired of living like this
I need to overcome the darkness

Now it's 'bout time I have a talk with the weatherman
Ask him to take away the clouds and let the sun shine again
And I don't know if he's even there or if he heard my little prayer
'Cause I asked three times and the
clouds didn't go away, they're still here

It's 'cause I'm telling you no
the way life is, storms will come and storms will go
And you've gotta last, no matter the forecast
Now I've got the sun in my pocket and I want you to take it
Put it in your heart where the clouds can't block it
And don't you just let it lay up in you dormant

Baby, you've gotta learn how to shine
And if the clouds aren't there to pick a fight
You won't learn how to shine bright
You've gotta learn how to shine
And if the rain stopped now and said goodbye
Then you wouldn't need the sun to shine
from inside you've gotta learn how to shine
'Cause you never know if your light will be the hope
For somebody else that's all alone, yeah
