Sit And Listen To The Rain - Whiskeytown

I love this Whiskeytown song 



There is a real feeling of forlorn regret in it, and every time I listen to it conjures images of lost hope,
faded dreams and far horizons.

The magic of the lostness is captured in a few simply lines: -

"i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try to understand i guess"

Sometimes just sitting and listening to the rain is the best feeling in the world.




Sit around dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel numb
could go out tonight but i ain't sure what for
call a friend or two i don't know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

gonna ride down to the river where it runs
gonna watch tv and pray for decent reruns
sit around and dream away what i've become (dream away what i've become)
used to feel so much now i just feel dumb

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try to understand i guess
i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try and understand
try and understand, i guess

sit around, dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel dumb
could go out tonight, but i ain't sure what for
call a friend or two i don't know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain
