That’s why the clouds cry
Verse 1
I hear a child scream from down the street, the child is crying because he has nothing to eat. His mama aint home she is gone away, she hasn’t been home in couple of days. Child hasn’t eaten and he gets cold, they live in a trailer full of roaches and it’s real old. This little boy just turned 4 and his mamas in a crack house down the street lying across the floor.
Chorus: Let the cool wind blow and where it stops nobody knows. There’s not a day that goes by, that pigeons don’t take off and began to fly. I can see the pain in the sky, that’s why the clouds sometimes cry.
Verse 2
A fireman comes home from a hard day, and he takes his kids out to the lake. His two kids are his pride and joy, the fireman has a girl and boy. They get to the lake and they jump in, and the two kids just learned to swim. The younger boy struggles and starts to go down and his dad jumps in and pulls the boy out on the ground. The man steps back into the water and then he grabs the hand of his daughter, the kids are safe now sitting on the shore, but something wraps around the man leg and pulls him to the river floor. The man fought but still he sank and they found the fireman’s body by the opposite bank.
Chorus: Let the cool wind blow and where it stops nobody knows. There’s not a day that goes by, that pigeons don’t take off and began to fly. I can see the pain in the sky, that’s why the clouds sometimes cry.
Verse 3
A soldier is fighting over seas in war; he is on his way home and just reached the end of his tour. He arrives at his house and go through the front door, he sees his wife sitting on the floor. She said I have some bad news, I’m sorry but I had to choose. I know that you don’t understand but I have another man. The soldier said tell me what you are saying, please honey tell me that you’re just playing. She pulled out a gun as she stood by the bed, then she raised the gun and shot her husband dead. The boyfriend came out from hiding and said grab all his cash, and come on we have to move and we have to move fast. We have to make it look like he was robbed so mess up the place and then we’ll call the cops. In her mind she told herself what the heck; I’m going to cash that insurance check. She told the police she found her husband that way, but they both were arrested the very next day. The boyfriend tried to let the woman take all the blame but the gun was register in his name.
Chorus: Let the cool wind blow and where it stops nobody knows. There’s not a day that goes by, that pigeons don’t take off and began to fly. I can see the pain in the sky, that’s why the clouds sometimes cry.
Verse 4
I woke up early in the morning and turned on the news, the story I heard in small town in Indiana gave me the blues. There was a 15 year old boy name Jimmy Wyatt, he was good at math and loved science. He got bullied at school, little Jimmy wasn’t considered to be cool. And his life at home was even worse; see his new step dad was a bone-fide jerk. He drank a lot and couldn’t find work, so he beat little Jimmy and Jimmy would try to hide the hurt. Jimmy wore old cloths and had very few friends; all he ever wanted was just to fit in. One day while walking home from school Jimmy decided to fight back, so he grabbed a pole while walking by the rail road track. When the kid got home he hid the pole under his bed, his step dad heard come in and this is what he said. You worthless piece of crap your nothing but dirt then the man drew back and spit on his shirt, but he was so drunk he didn’t even see that the boy had pole, so Jimmy took one swing and knocked the man out cold. His momma runs in screaming and Jimmy tries to plead his case, but his momma wouldn’t listen and slapped him in the face. As you could imagine Jimmy felt out of place. I guessed that why he dreamed to be an astronaut so he could fly to outer space. He felt as if he had nowhere to turn, and that all of his dreams had crashed and burned. The next morning it was the worst thing you could see, little Jimmy Wyatt was hanging from a tree. This whole story is nothing nice because little Jimmy got fed up and took his own life.
Chorus: Let the cool wind blow and where it stops nobody knows. There’s not a day that goes by, that pigeons don’t take off and began to fly. I can see the pain in the sky, that’s why the clouds sometimes cry. (2X)
