I began writing this song sitting in Spanish III class midway through my junior year. The verse came to me first, which is rare because usually the chorus comes first. Lacking notation paper and afraid that I'd forget the melody, I asked my teacher if I could go play the piano, and she agreed! Definitely a God thing. I sat down and played my first verse and the chorus just came to me. The piano riffs came a few day later when I needed something unique. I still think they are overused in the recording, but that can always be fixed later.
What's it about? The first verse is the emphasis on non-desirable rainy days and is simply a delusion. The second verse highlights the extreme joy of being alone with your wife.
Notice how I said 'wife'. The idea of the song is that the two are married. For a side-note, the words in the chorus used to be:
Rainy Day, the sun ain't shining on me
Lazy Day, in bed with you watching TV
The first time I played it for my mom, she goes, "It sounds great, Todd, but I'm confused about some of the words."
So she made me read them to her.
Her: "It sounds like they're sleeping together."
Me: "They're married."
Her: "Change the words."
Pretty much that simple, so instead of 'in bed with you watching TV', it's 'alone with you watching TV'
But I told her, "As soon as I'm married, I'm changing it back!"
