This is one of those songs that I forget about for years and then enjoy rediscovering. Kind of reminds me of Two of Us and I dig the way Paul pronounces “umbrella”. Thanks for the good vibes Paul & Linda!

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

I always enjoy listening to this song..It brings me loads of peace and joy and I love listening to it after a bad day
So the next time you see rain it ain’t bad,
Don’t complain it rains for you,
The next time you see L.A. rain clouds,
Don’t complain it rains for you and me
I love the message that though things may seem bad upon first glance, in the long run, they can lead to growth and happiness. (Quite a positive and optimistic message to spread during the present, considering the sticky situation the world is in, don’t you think? )

I love this song, always have. It’s a perfect song for me: the lyrics are perfect, I love rain, couldn’t agree with it more; the harmonies are divine; the chord progression is smooth and melodic but still takes you unexpected places, just like Beatle magic chord progressions always do.
so Lay Down your UM ba RELL LAAAAZ!
