Yeah, I’ll admit it. I’ve got kind of a thing for rock bands with female vocalists. There’s something to that balance between slamming sound and soft vocals (or sometimes loud) that I really like. Ever since my all time favorite band Audio Adrenaline moved on to bigger things, I’ve been looking for some good bands to rock out to.
Then one day on the radio I heard Superchick and I got goosebumps all over again. Their music is rockin’ and their lyrics really hit home on some hard issues without trying to be fluffy about it.
Enter the song “Stand in the Rain” from their Beauty From Pain album. Listening to the song and hearing the lyrics, I don’t really see it providing a solution to the troubles around you, other than to continue to hold strong, to stand in the rain, and let it work it’s way through. Often times we want to fight that which we can’t change, especially during the our hard times in life. Sometimes we need to just stand, not lose hope, and wait to see what happens. It’s not fun, I’ve been there, but it gives me hope to endure.
Enjoy the lyrics and the music.
Stand In The Rain
She never slows down
She doesn’t know why, but she knows
That when she’s all alone
It feels like it’s all coming down
She won’t turn around
The shadows are long and she fears
If she cries that first tear
The tears will not stop raining down
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain
She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself
And the fear’s whispering
If she stands, she’ll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything
She’s running from
She wants to give up and lie down
