Leaving on a Mayday, fine summer pain
In his heart on his tounge, the taste is sweet again
Leaving on a Mayday, fine summer pain
But he said a feather, and his mind can take all, his feet are moving again

Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rain

Morning comes, wakes him up, he looks out at the parking lot
Sees the house, he was born, almost 57 years ago
Where his brother lives, where his sister moved, and all three went to unfinished school
Where the father died, in '59, and mother did in 63'
He's reminded of her when he looks at me.

Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rani
That's how, that's how all things grow
That's how, that's how all things grow

I've been waiting for the noosy set, 20 years I've been waiting
For the last pages in a book I read, of love, death and endless need
About you, your sister your mother and me, even the happiest families bleed.
I want to get even, making it last, get every bastard from the past

Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Let it rain, on me, let it rain
Oh let it rain, on me, that's how
That's how all things grow, that's how
That's how all things grow, that's how
That's how all things grow, that's how
That's how all things grow

Want to get even, making last, get every bastard from the past
Want to get even, making last, get every bastard from the past
Want to get even, making last, get every bastard from the past

Whoa, the piano added a second note towards the end!

does she sing "get every bastard from the past"? woah chill darling, and anyway let's hear THEIR side of what happened

The piano guy is a wonder.  That finger is sure getting a work out.

ho hum is the best way to describe this song...

Doubtful; I purchased and was very disappointed.
Adding this album to my "heard it on RP" wish list.
End already. This is grating.

"Swedish visual artist Helena Blomqvist created the striking album cover artwork for singer-songwriter, Anna Ternheim, who saw her photos for the exhibition, The Dark Planet, and immediately felt that she wanted to work with Blomqvist. It turned out that the artist had been listening to Ternheim’s music while preparing the pictures for the exhibition. ‘I was drawn to the tone of her pictures,’ says Ternheim. ‘They display something dark and surreal that hit me straight in the heart. I contacted her last summer and was thrilled when she agreed to work with me’" - taken from - https://www.lostateminor.com/2009/06/22/helena-blomqvist/

You'll need finger splints and a mouthful of Ibuprofen afterwards.

I think there's a YouTube video of a cat that plays better piano than this!

If by "looks exactly like" you meant "is faintly reminiscent of" then, yeah, EXACTLY.

Will someone please nudge her out into the rain so she'll STFU?

Ha! You're right.  I wondered where I had seen that before.

Great! New Anna Ternheim, It will be interesting to hear the rest of this album.

......but what I want to know is why do you play so many different songs of hers......but when it comes to Eliza Gilkyson you play the same song over and over??Humm??
could someone please hand her an umbrella ?

she already did better, way better ...
