The rain comes down tonight
It drowns my world and hides my pain
I couldn’t make it right
A passion I could not sustain

The clouds roll in and then it starts
The river rises in my heart

If you could look at me
It should be plain to see that
The tears that fill my eyes
Are the ones I she'd for
The memory of our love
A feeling like no other
So baby turn away
As my heart cries out for you

The water fills my soul
Perhaps to wash away my sin
The struggle to be whole
The hope redemption will begin

I raise my hands for help from Heaven
But darkness comes it rains again – comin’ down again

Despair has left me blind
The river runs and races
Erodes the stone that I
Once thought was my heart
If you could hear my voice
You’ll hear the song I’m singing
So baby close this door
And you’ll see no more of me

If I dry my tears
I would see your face once again
If I face my fears
I would see your eyes, and
Hear you cry, and
Feel your sadness too

So baby say goodbye
If it’s not now, it’s never
No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness
Don’t even need to try
Our story ends forever
I’ll leave my heart behind
And I will not follow

So turn your eyes from me
It’s time to walk away now
Too late to try again
And to find redemption
Let go of what we had
And let me take a last look
And let this river run
As it takes my heart from you

So baby say goodbye
If it’s not now, it’s never
No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness
Don’t even need to try
Our story ends forever
I’ll leave my heart behind
And I will not follow you

And I will not follow you
