Wrote this in an hour on Facebook Live as part of virtual FAWMstock, so I tried to keep it fairly simple. I got "rain" as a prompt from an external challenge, randomly selected a key and some simple chord progressions (which were changed slightly) and went from there. You can watch the replay of my writing process here: https://www.facebook.com/amandaroseriley/videos/2668157130101682/ The sharp eyed might notice that I changed a few lyrics here and there, but that's a writer's prerogative!
It's been a few days since you went away
It's been a few days since I felt right
The bags under my eyes have been killing me
Well I've been lying awake every night
Since you went away the rain
Follows me all through my day
It's been a few weeks since you went away
I'm still yearning to see the sun again
I still wake up every morning and make my coffee
But even coffee's not a perfect friend
Been feeling like the rain is gonna fall forever
But I know that the clouds are gonna clear
The rest of my life can't just be stormy weather
And with the sun one day my strength will reappear
