By bonnie bramlett and eric clapton

The rain is falling through the mist of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away the the bliss that lays around me.

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Her life was like a desert flower burning in the sun.
Until I found the way to love, it's harder said than done.

Chorus

Now I know the secret; there is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you, you'll surely give it back.

Chorus

    Seems to be saying that you can only connect in love to the extent that you allow the vulnerability of giving unconditionally.
