Even though we know, yeah
We know
Our time has almost come
We're all overdue
Can there be a place to call our own?
Can there be a road that takes us home?

We tow the line (Tow the line)
We go along (We go along)
We tow the line
To you now

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as gray as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore that they'd restore
The city piece by piece
And the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours

The mystery unknown now unfolds
The life that we once owned
First bought, then sold
Like messengers of war, we've no control
To oceans unexplored
The ships sail through

We tow the line (We tow the line)
We go along (We go along)
We tow the line
To you now

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as gray as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore they'd restore
The city piece by piece
And then the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours
It pours
It pours

When it rains it pours
When they die we mourn
When it hit, we swore
Now we want not more
Like a saint reborn
Like a rose in a storm
Like a child unborn
A child unborn

It's the coin we're tossing into the well
It's misfortune we could not foretell
It's the dry spell

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as gray as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore they would restore
The city piece by piece
And then the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours
It pours
When it rains it pours
