Kid Rock - When It Rains Lyrics

Like a deer in the headlights, I stood frozen in my tracks
And the weight of the news, It nearly broke my back
It was late september, and I remember oh so well
I put a rose in the bible and placed it on my shelf

Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now the things I never knew before

Back then when we were 17
Time was on our side
Holes in our jeans and a pocket full of dreams
The future was Friday night
And we would hangout down by the riverbend
Singing our favorite songs
Laughin and drinkin, smokin and smilin
Now those days are gone

Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now the things I know for shore

Like a deer in the headlights, I stood frozen in my tracks
And the weight of you not here nearly broke my back
And the tears they fell like a monsoon
Underneath the cold fall moon
Somehow God put his hands on yur shoulders
Way too, way too soon

Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now the things I never knew before
Now when it rains, it pours
Wish I didnt know now
No I didnt know now
What I knew before

  11. Heidi Sterner

    47 yrs old and you have such an amazing way of saying what most people in our age group are thinking. Those were the best years of my life. Your friends were everything and all we cared about was havin fun and for me, keeping at least a 2.5 gpa so i didnt get kicked off our cheer squad and so i didnt get grounded because friday and saturday nights were everything. We had the biggest parties and so many of our friends' houses got trashed when mom and dad were out of town, im talking replacing the carpet, etc, but most of us were always there with our heads down, but damn sure helping our friends clean the house, at least what we could. If i could go back just once, i would change the biggest mistake of my life and gotten with the one i was truely in love with and he was me, but i was already dating his best friend and i married him and we had 2 beautiful daughters, which i wouldnt change that for anything, so i guess it worked out as god intended. He is still his best friend, and sometimes at get togethers, when the liquor is flowing and our inhibitions come down, he always says, "I WISH I WOULD HAVE HAD THE GUTS TO TELL YOU HOW I FELT THEN, BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER STOPPED LOVING YOU" and i wish he would have to in a way, but i wouldnt have my beautiful 2 daughters and my beautiful 3 granddaughters. My husband and i were together for 29 yrs and we grew apart and split up after both our girls had moved out, and he still calls and txts me wanting to try, he is also divorced w 2 grown daughters, but im afraid it would hurt my ex husband so bad and idk what my girls would think, so i have to fight the love i still feel for him because i dont want to be selfish and hurt the people close to me. This song just took me back to those carefree days. Thankyou for that. So beautiful and u r so special and so gifted. ❤❤❤✌

    Love this man and his values. Keeping it real, true, personal and honest. He started his music about himself. Hardcore true, good or bad! He loves his country and while sharing reality of his life that spreads into so many others who experience alot of the same. Just not at his level! But the same. Now he gives even more love and hope to so many others. Even when we're bad or hardcore. There's always the heart that keeps us grounded and true!!! I huge shout out to a man that not only showed me that I'm not alone, and so many good things can come out of life if you live it and learn, share and encourage so many. I recently was diagnosed with 2 cancers Jan 1st 2018 One has no cure to date. Other does. My father diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer Feb 14th 2018. Kid Rock. I thank you for getting me through some tough times and excepting this is life.. enjoy.. Thank You for your love of country and your golfing partner and friend President Trump.. Kid Rock for VP😎🤘🇺🇸🇺🇸 many of your songs have been written in to my executor of will.. up to my last breath.. an honor... my dream before getting sick was to attend his concert August 10th 2018 at treasure island casino in welch Minnesota. 4 months prior to that a friend said his friend a VIP would get me to tickets. Without pressure several months prior to that I tried to get informed about the tickets so I can make plans soon as I didn't drive long story short I got the tickets over my phone the night before as I don't drive I did not have much time to arrange anything in my ride fell through I was so very depressed my goal is to get to one .. I never know when I'll be sick again in her has to do my chemo again .. very bummed...Thanks Kid Rock..✌🤘❤

  66. david hopkins

    Hey Emma 67 years old and don't usually write comments. This man deserves some recognition I mean he started out rapping evolve to what he is today not that is rap was bad but being 67 naturally I enjoy this type of music much more. I personally like the way he sings about life everyday life not some poetic mystifying way of expressing feelings. Some artists although their songs sound great you never really understand what they're saying about with kid you know you've been there you've done that it's true. So keep on doing what you do
