The Rain Song Lyrics

This is the springtime of my loving – the second season I am to know.

You are the sunlight in my growing – so little warmth I’ve felt before.

It isn’t hard to feel me glowing – I watched the fire that grew so low.

It is the summer of my smiles – flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.

Speak to me only with your eyes. It is to you I give this tune.

Ain’t so hard to recognize – These things are clear to all from time to time.

Talk Talk – I’ve felt the coldness of my winter

I never thought it would ever go. I cursed the gloom that set upon us…

But I know that I love you so

These are the seasons of emotion and like the winds they rise and fall

This is the wonder of devotion – I see the torch we all must hold.

This is the mystery of the quotient – Upon us all a little rain must fall.
