lyrics

And The Rain Comes Down

Fate turns like an old oak wheel
It turned me around
Warm boots and a brand new deal
Look at me now
I’ve been known to sit and watch the starlight turn to dawn
And I’ve been known to sit and listen to the crickets carrying on

All the ways a man can fail
Well, I’m sure I’ve tried them all
All the times you told me that
You loved me anyway
All our disappointments,
Well, they washed away today

I raise my arms
And the rain comes down
I close my eyes
And it heals me
I lift my heart
and the rain comes down
It comes down on me

Time burns like a Coleman lamp
Until we are through
Each boy loses his old man
It’s simple but true
I’ve been known to take a good idea out too far
And I’ve been known to end up
Like the dog who caught the car

All the ways a man can fail
I sure did try them all
All the times you told me that you loved me anyway
All our disappointments
Well, they washed away today

I raise my arms
And the rain comes down
I close my eyes
And it heals me
I lift my heart
and the rain comes down
It comes down on me
