Right as Rain
Posted by: Mack
Details
Totally correct, totally true.
"'Cause who wants to be right as rain, it's better when something is wrong. I get excitement in my bones, even though everything's a strain. When night comes and I'm on my own, you should know I chose to be alone. Who wants to be right as rain, it's harder when you're on top." [from the Song Right as Rain by Adele]
