Sunshine Follows Rain
© 2014 Kevin Winchester

Young girl in the hallway, leaning by the stairs
Like an anchor dropped in quicksand, she ain’t going nowhere
After two shifts at the diner, she dries her baby’s tears.
She keeps her past behind her, and she’s older than her years

And she knows, sunshine always follows rain,
And she knows, sometimes pleasure comes from pain.
When the world knocks you down, you get back up again, ‘cause:
Sunshine always follows rain.

Young man waits at sunrise, outside the Home Depot.
He’ll cut your grass, he’ll haul your trash, he’ll make your flowers grow.
He was a banker in his homeland when the sicarios arrived.
Brought his family north in the dark of night to keep them all alive.

And she knows, sunshine always follows rain,
And she knows, sometimes pleasure comes from pain.
When the world knocks you down, you get back up again, ‘cause:
Sunshine always follows rain.

Take a look around you, when the cold wind starts to blow.
There’s someone with a harder row to hoe.
So take some time for laughter, and dancing every day,
Cause sunshine always follows rain

Old man on the front porch, rocking in his chair.
The crickets all stopped buzzing, there’s a stillness in the air.
Another day is fading, you try to make it last.
Like a shooting star across the sky, it all goes by so fast.

And she knows, sunshine always follows rain,
And she knows, sometimes pleasure comes from pain.
When the world knocks you down, you get back up again, ‘cause:
Sunshine always follows rain.
