Rain In My Coffee started as a kind of writing exercise. It occurred to me that in this era of singer songwriters, we have become accustomed to accepting their songs as the truth. Maybe not THE truth, but at least their truth. And I wondered, what if a song was written where everything was a lie, a lie that the singer needed to live, just to carry on? So, I started from that premise, that each line was a lie, and I found that I had no idea what the song was about, until it was finished. And then I saw that it was a kind of ghost story, of someone living with the ghost or memory of someone long gone. I love Julie's "ghost" vocal on this one.
