Out of the rain, under the shelter
I've been so long where the sun don't shine
Standing at the crossroad, oh, could have went either way
But now I've found you and the storm is behind

Out of the rain, out of the rain, oh yeah, oh

Over the wall, I'm out in the open
Back on the right track, I'm feeling no pain
You took a sparrow, let it fly like an eagle
I can see long ways, I feel love again

Out of the rain, out of the rain

It took your sweet love to pull me out of the canyon
And I believe I can make it now, I feel like I belong

Out of the rain, out of the rain
Out of the rain
Out of the rain, out of the rain
Out of the rain

Out of the rain, I'm out of the rain
Feeling no pain, I'm out of the rain
Clean out of the rain
Out of the rain

    My husband and i were in a near fatal motorcycle accident 2 years ago. Physically, we are as healed as we're going to get. I have been fighting back from major depression. I feel i have turned a corner and can now see some positive things in my life. I think this song is written about her lover, but to me, i would sing it to god.

    מחוץ לגשם, מתחת למחסה
    הייתי כל כך הרבה זמן במקום בו השמש לא זורחת
    עומדת בצומת דרכים, הוו, יכולתי לפנות ללאחד מהכיוונים,
    אבל עכשיו מצאתי אותך והסערה כבר מאחור

    מחוץ לגשם, מחוץ לגשם, הוו כן, הוו

    מעבר לקיר, אני בחוץ , בחזרה לדרך הנכונה אני לא מרגישה כב
    אתה לקחת חץ נתת לו לעוף כמו נשר
    אני יכולהלהביט למרחק , אני יכולה להרגיש אהבה שוב

    מחוץ לגשם, מחוץ לגשם

    האהבה המתוקה שלך יכלה להוציא אותי מהבור הגדול הזה
    ואני מאמינה שאני יכולה להצליח עכשיו, אני מרגישה כאילו אני שייכת

    מחוץ לגשם, מחוץ לגשם
    מחוץ לגשם,
    מחוץ לגשם, מחוץ לגשם
    מחוץ לגשם

    מחוץ לגשם אני מחוץ לגשם
    לא מרגישה כאב, אני מחוץ לגשם
    נקייה מהגשם
    מחוץ לגשם

    Etta is at peace - she is out of the rain... And feeling no pain... Another legend gone, but never forgotten.
