    Lyrics

    The rain came down
    the rain came down
    the rain came down on me
    The wind blew strong
    and Summer's song
    it fades to memory.

    I knew you when
    I loved you then
    in Summer's yawn, now hopeless.
    You laid me bare
    and marked me there
    the promises we made.

    I used to think, as birds take wing,
    they sing through life, so why can't we?
    We cling to this, and claim the best
    if this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain.

    The nighttime creases
    Summer schemes
    and stretches out to stay
    The sun shines down
    you came around
    you loved the easy days.

    But now the sun
    the Winter's come
    I wanted just to say
    That if I hold
    I'd hoped you'd fold
    and open up inside, inside of me.

    I used to think, as birds take wing,
    they sing through life, so why can't we?
    We cling to this, and claim the best
    if this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain.

    This Winter's song
    I'll sing along
    I've searched its still refrain.
    I'll walk alone
    if given this
    take wing, and celebrate the rain.

    I used to think, as birds take wing,
    they sing through life, so why can't we?
    We cling to this, and claim the best
    if this is what you're offering
    I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain.
