Strawbs – Let It Rain lyrics

I'm never one for fighting, but I'm about to make a stand
There's no sense in retreating when you're standing on dry land
Our life has been a turmoil, a stormy night at sea
The low of deep depression to the high of ecstasy.

Let it rain, let it pour
That's what the sun shine's for
Who needs sadness anymore
That's what the sun shine's for
Let it rain, let it pour
That's what the sun shine's for.

True love runs a narrow gauge, it carries heavy freight
It never runs on schedule but it comes to those who wait
The going may be torturous and the truth may hit you hard
At your final destination, I'll be standing there on guard.

Now you're making progress, I've got something to report
At last we've learned our lessons after all that we've been taught
We've travelled such a long way down a solitary track
We're heading for the sunrise and never looking back.
