How long
Has it been dear
Since we felt the rain
Endless were our summers
Until the weather changed
Our love was lifted like a harvest
No winter in your eyes
Now cold winds cut Right through us
And so the harvest dies

Stranded and lost without you
My pain lives in this house
It's like your heart here
Empty and cold dear
My wild birds flying south
I know that you can hear me
Crying
Where did I
Go wrong
What brought this storm
Into your heart
After loving me so long

Someday
Maybe you'll blame
All this on the rain
But until then
Love's the one thing
I'll never feel again
And after all my tears have
Drowned me
And nothing else
Remains
I'll be one step short of heaven
Seeking shelter from the rain
Someday
Maybe you'll blame
All this on the rain
But until then
Love's the one thing
I'll never feel again
