about

This was the first collab D-Shade and I ever did - before 'New Routine' from 'Steps To The Peak' actually. It was originally conceptualized with the homie Tunji out in LA, hence the mention in my first two bars, but it didn't work out. I'm glad it panned out how it did - it's the first single, D and I did a great video with iLLvibe in Montreal for it. D-Shade is a legend out here so it was a blessing to work with him.

lyrics

[Verse: Cee]
As the water hits the window pane, the Melbourne winter never seemed so strange,
It's like the time I first seen LA,
Drops pouring from the heavens,
It rained on our parade but to the soil of my barren homeland, yo it's a blessing,
And I, find my time indoors inspire thoughts,
Nothing else to do but get in the booth and hit record,
Let the words float through, mic check, 1, 2,
Mind clears as I set to spit my soul on cue for you,
The vibe of the city is obvious to mention,
Grey skies complimenting gothic architecture,
And when the sun shines, it's beautiful,
But even in the summer time, between 'em it is far and few,
But still I fuckin' love it dude, she my muse and my lover estranged,
The bittersweet dull pound of the rain,
And when she turning it on for me, it's awesome,
But I can see the beauty in the darkness, the stark contrast affording,
Me the inspiration to stay busy,
If it's nice out, I'd rather be soaking up the rays, chillin',
It's so rare these days, but ain't really,
Nothin' like my city, why? Because it's my city,
The forecast will never get me down,
I make the best of what we gettin' and that's something I stay remembering,
It gettin' hectic in this crazy age,
And so I'm fiendin' for these rainy days, I'm finna tell 'em bout it

[Hook: Cee & D-Shade]
[D-Shade] When the heavens get to opening
[Cee] Opening, It's like the walls is steady closin' in
[D-Shade] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[Cee] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back round

[D-Shade] When the heavens get to opening
[Cee] Opening, It's like the walls is steady closin' in
[D-Shade] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[Cee] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back 'round

[Verse 2: D-Shade]
Yeah the sun shines behind grey skies (grey skies),
We pray for rain to make the grains rise (grains rise),
And when it rains, it pours,
And I'm just sayin', something you should prepare for,
Overcast skies getting darker by the minute,
Better find shelter soon if you don't wanna get caught in it,
Yeah, and rainy days is when I stay in,
Blowin' trees back like hurricane winds,
What else can you do when you got water to your shins?
And I ain't going out there without a snorkel or fins,
So, I'm on the inside looking out,
Patiently waiting for some type of break in the clouds,
Nature does her thing, crops stay green,
July '87, most rain I ever seen,
Now I pack an umbrella when I'm on tour,
Coz I'll never know when I'll need shelter from the downpour

[Hook: Cee & D-Shade]
[Cee] When the heavens get to opening
[D-Shade] Opening, It's like the walls steady closin' in
[Cee] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[D-Shade] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back round

[Cee] When the heavens get to opening
[D-Shade] Opening, It's like the walls steady closin' in
[Cee] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[D-Shade] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back 'round
[Verse 3: Cee & D-Shade]

[Cee]
Yeah and the snow is finna fade away,
In Canada the winter lasting 'til the days of May,
The frozen sky, it always seems to keep the rain at bay,
But fuck it, je préfère la neige, so I'ma wait 'til summer wakes

[D-Shade]
Nothing better than some showers on a muggy day,
And strippers say they sure love it when the money rains,
Little water on the field, can't stop my running game,
After sunshine be prepared for another rain

[Cee]
Where's my umbrella, eh?
And I ain't scared of getting wet, I just keep my gear fresh like the spring inva-
-sion, IPA and vape got me fuckin bla-zin',
Feeling like Jamaica when the crazy rains come

[D-Shade]
When the rain's done, we back to the party,
Couple prawns on the barbie, getting lifted off the Marley,
We ain't stressing, we just celebrating life,
C'ause for now the sky's clear, not a cloud in sight

[Hook: Cee & D-Shade]
[Cee] When the heavens get to opening
[D-Shade] Opening, It's like the walls is steady closin' in
[Cee] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[D-Shade] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back round

[Cee] When the heavens get to opening
[D-Shade] Opening, It's like the walls is steady closin' in
[Cee] Closin' in, I hear the thunder in the background
[D-Shade] Now we just waiting for the sun to come back 'round
