Things You Only Wonder When It’s Raining
Jubal Lee Young
© 2005, Tellico Music (BMI)

How can someone be so beautiful
That they are painful to behold?
Why are the hearts you have to break always gold?
How can you love someone so much it hurts?
And will you ever be the same?
Why does the poet find his pleasure in the pain?

I wonder why I’ve wasted all this time?
Wondering why the sun refused to shine
I wonder why we can’t make love
Until there’s only love remaining
Things you only wonder when it’s raining

How can everything turn out all right
When I feel like I feel now?
Will we ever learn to beat our swords back into plows?
If I got everything I ever wanted
What would I want then?
Why do the deepest cuts come from the truest friends?

I wonder why I’ve wasted all this time?
I wonder why the sun refused to shine
I wonder why we can’t make love
Until there’s only love remaining
Things you only wonder when it’s raining
