about

Weather was written over 10 years ago in Oakland CA with the late Paulette Hogan and Erica Brown. Tim'm and his friends wanted to capture a song that spoke to how a couple with different "climate" sensibilities find common ground. Tim'm never quite found music that worked for the song until connecting with Rob Rhythm, who had the perfect soulful and smooth groove to parallel the lyrics. Tim'm initially wrote the song as a duet with a woman (once performed with Erica Brown) but felt, working with Ceedro, that it was a perfect post-Marriage equality to sing about love between two men as a matter-of-fact of the lives of many. It's a universal song that will speak to many, whatever their orientations.

lyrics

Weather (feat. Ceedro)
(west/hogan/brown)

Verse 1

Tim'm:

I like the sun
reminds me of
your warm embrace
your sunny smile
when I'm with you

Ceedro:

I like the rain
don't mind it wet
we have to stay
inside all night
just me and you

Chorus:

(weather or not)
it's rainy or sunny
(weather or not)
the clouds go my way
(weather or not)
I'm happy to be with you baby
cuz you make my day

repeat

Verse 2:

Tim'm:

and like the sun
the heat of passion
burns inside
an eternal flame
cuz I'm with you

Ceedro:

and like the rain
I watch the drops
of sweat from your
body to mine
only with you

Chorus

Vamp/Adlib:

you shake me like an earthquake
you spin me like a twister
gotta prepare for your love like a hurricane
(your love blows me away)

you lift me like a sandstorm
make me tremble like when thunder roams
but with your arms around me safe and warm
let the sun shine, or the rain come

Chorus to fade...
