Like Tennessee Rain

He doesn’t kiss her, he gets out of bed
She writes love poems he’s never read
He turns a blind eye to the tears she sheds
Just a couple livin’ ordinary lives

She makes the coffee, makes up the bed
Listens to rain drummin’ overhead
So many “I love you’s” he’s left unsaid
Just a couple livin’ ordinary lives

Chorus 1:
And the Tennessee rain
Falls straight down from the sky
In her hurt and her pain
All she can do is cry
Like Tennessee rain

She makes breakfast, he’s distant and cool
She packs lunch, he loads his truck with tools
She dreams of love by a tropical pool
Just a couple livin’ ordinary lives

She wonders when their love grew so dim
Does laundry, smells perfume, sees lipstick
The hurting heart she carries finally rips
Just a woman discovering the lies

Chorus 1:
And the Tennessee rain
Falls straight down from the sky
In her hurt and her pain
All she can do is cry
Like Tennessee rain

She packs her suitcase with clothes and dreams
Heading for an island where she can live free
Finally admitted the love that she needs
Wouldn’t ever happen in her ordinary life

Final Chorus:
And the Tennessee rain
Fell straight down from the sky
She was done with the pain
And finally said goodbye
To Tennesse rain

And the Tennessee rain
Fell straight down from the sky
She was done with the pain
And finally said goodbye
To Tennesse rain

Trailer:  When she finally said goodbye to that ordinary life
She finally said goodbye to that ordinary life
