Brad Paisley – Behind The Clouds

Behind the Clouds is a song in Cars and Mater and the Ghostlight. It is performed by Brad Paisley.

In Cars, the song is played at Flo's V8 Café before Lightning McQueen comes to tell everyone that Doc Hudson was the Fabulous Hudson Hornet.

In Mater and the Ghostlight, the song plays during the beginning when Mater is pulling pranks on his friends. It plays more faintly, similarly to how it played in Cars, in the following scene at Flo's V8 Café. Mater also sings it when he goes home. Finally, the song played during the credits.

The song serves as track 4 on the Cars soundtrack. An instrumental version, as well as a vocal version sung by David Jeremiah, are featured on Disney's Karaoke Series: Cars.


When you're feelin' lonely, lost and let down
Seems like those dark skies are following you around
And li-ife's just one big shade of gray
You wonder if you'll see the light of day

Behind the clouds, the sun is shi-ining
Believe me even though you can't quite make it out
You may not see the silver li-ining
But there's a big blue sky waiting right behind the clouds


I've heard it said that this too shall pass
Good times or bad times, neither one lasts
But thinkin' that your luck won't ever change
Is like thinkin' it won't ever stop once it starts to rain

(chorus and instrumental)
