Feel the rain

Feel the rain on your skin
no one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips


These words, funny enough, were part of an add on the TV but somehow the lyrics hit a cord that I’ve been searching for for so long; people can tell you a thousand times how something should be, how something should feel but then no one other than you trying it will give you the real meaning that you’re searching for.

We talk to people all the time, they try to pass their experiences to us and we try to explain to them our own visions and feelings but then how can things like, love, loss, passion and life be explained in words? How can someone describe his most intimate thoughts to others in words and words are so limited? How can they listen and understand what you mean when no one can take anything in without adding to it from their own pool of thoughts, ideas and feelings making the story that is told unique to every listener and never what its author intended it to be…

It’s been sometime since I last updated this blog, busy at work and with family it’s been hard to sit and let the words flow by with so many things happening and at the same time, with the conscience of knowing that there are people who will be reading these words (the only reason to have a blog is to have it read!) it was a bit difficult thinking of how to put the million things going through my head in words but then I heard this song and realised that no matter how hard I try, every one who reads this will read it in his or her own way and it will mean such different things to each one of you dear friends… when I want to write about love, loss, passion and life, you my friend will read the words in your own way and with your own experiences feeding into it and that what makes it so exciting, knowing that the same lines will be received in so many different ways…

This time, I don’t have much to say other than we can all talk about everything and anything but you will only know when you try it yourself….

So go out, and feel the rain

I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your innovations
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, yeah, yeah
