BAD WEATHER

Written: Southern California Interstate, 1987 

Knees was driving back from Riverside CA in a rainstorm when he wrote one of his most normal songs. He had been out to visit Sue Moore, a high school friend, and had chickened out of her challenge for him to tackle California. Knees, not known for his bravery, was an inertia kind of guy and found it difficult to make big changes in his life. Later that year he moved to Shreveport LA to begin his second career as magazine editor.

  

Itís rainin on the freeway

LAís turnin shiny grey.

The people on the freeway

Donít they work so hard to play?

It was rainin the first time we met

We waited it out together

An it may sound funny but you know sometimes

Thereís somethin good about bad weather.

 

It was cold livin in Durango

The snow kept us close to home

Now when Iím in Durango

I go out into the cold

An remember all the times that

   we were snowed in,

I wanted them to last forever.

Cuz when youíre with the one you love

Thereís somethin good about bad weather.

 

So let the lightnin flash

Let the thunder roar

Let the four winds blow

Let it snow some more.

Mmm, thereís somethin good about bad weather.

 

So we moved out on the Gulf Coast

The most peaceful place weíve been

Now we walk out on the Gulf Coast

An watch the waves roll in.

Our love is stronger than a hurricane

It can only blow us closer together

Cuz when youíre with the one you love

Thereís somethin good about bad weather.

 

So let the lightnin flash

Let the thunder roar

Let the four winds blow

Let it snow some more.

Mmm, thereís somethin good about bad weather.
