Lyrics of

If it rains

I can't understand how it happened
Seems I've run into morning too soon I'm sure
As the shimmering presence of daybreak
Descends to the living room floor

I step to the window and listen
To sounds it seems I've never heard before
A street like a midwestern carneval
A girl on an alien shore

When the sun shines at midnight
Keep me running just the same
But sing me still
If it rains

My eyes scan out around me
As I hear them on the run

Though a thousand lions surround me
I count them all as one


A black and lightless cavern
A riddle from on high
I feel the bright-eyed courier
Can teach me how to cry

These things, now second nature
Remain a part of me
With only rain to tell me of
The places I can be
