When it rains, it rains a lifetime,
Heavy skies of shadow grey,
When it rains, it rains forever,
Amongst the sorrow, let me lay.
Let me lay, in fields of sunshine,
Wrap me up in fields of gold,
Keep me warm, in days that linger,
Telling tales as dreams unfold.
Dreams of more, of something better,
Of days that stretch, of days that last,
To make each minute count for something,
To take us back to times now past.
A simpler time, when life was easy,
When life was driven by life itself,
A slower pace, too oft forgotten,
For a life thats driven by power and wealth
The city sleeps but for no-one,
The rain falls as if on cue,
Dreams are left by the wayside,
As the day – begins anew.
