Ill Take The Rain - Lyrics by Rem


Lyrics
The rain came down

The rain came down

The rain came down on me.


The wind blew strong

The summer song

Fades to memory

I knew you when
I loved you then

The summer's young and helpless.


You laid me bare

You marked me there

The promises we made.

I used to think

As birds take wing

They sing through life so why can't we?

You cling to this

You 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.


The nighttime creases

Summer schemes

And stretches out to stay.

The sun shines down

You came around

You love easy days.


But now the sun,

The winter's come.
I wanted just to say

That if I hold
I'd hope you'd fold Open up inside, inside of me.

I used to think

As birds take wing

They sing through life so why can't we?

You cling to this

You 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 song
I'll sing along
I've searched its still refrain
I'll walk alone
I've given this, take wing

Celebrate the rain.

I used to think

As birds take wing

They sing through life so why can't we?

You cling to this

You 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.
