lyrics

When it rains it pours, so don't hold nothing back
With so much pain for sure, it's not for grief I lack
Come on rain from on high, leave nothing in your wake that's dry, let it rain...

It's but a small price to pay to see the green grass grow
Only through such lessons learned can we hope to know
The wisdom pain bestows, the secrets of life's ebb & flow
So it is, and it is so

Clouds will gather, chasing light away, leaving all but cold and gray
I won't surrender, I'll weather it till it wanes, so let it rain

Pounding hard and fast upon the window pane, so that at once, all hope and joys restrained, upon us all some rain must fall, storms will rage, the fates will call
So let it rain down on me

Clouds will gather, cold winds will blow, its time has come, this I know
As in the Yin & the Yang, there's never pleasure without pain, so let it rain

So let it rain down on me,
Let this pain and let it be, let it rain on me
Let it rain down on me, let this pain set me free, let it rain down on me

It's easy to believe that pain and misery serve no one at all, but upon us all a little rain must fall
With pleasure comes its pain, they're one and the same

The birdsong silenced, the sky a deepened grey
My heart hangs heavy, I've not the words to say
Soon enough I'll see the sun, the clouds will part, a new day will come,
But for now, let it rain...
