This is a song about being true to yourself no matter what is happening around you.


I'll be your city boy, your kid from Alabama
Anything you please
In others eyes, you know I wouldn't hold a candle, but I guess we'll see
If truth is colder than a Minnesota winter, good to hear you're free
If pain you feel ain't without beauty and a story, then it's pain indeed

Hold out your hands and let the rain collect inside
beware the coin like truth for both will have two sides

An absent mind, he left his house without a raincoat, pouring cats and dogs
The pretty girl with a polka dot umbrella, ran across the road
A fella's luck can come by chance, but there are some who, do believe it's made
As for me I don't see any rhyme or reason, but who am I to say

Control your head and may your words keep what you know
As for me I'll be downstairs forever in plain clothes
As for me I'll be downstairs forever in plain clothes
