Song a day song # 294

lyrics

There’s no bluebird laughing (oh no!)
There’s no robin crying (oh no!)
There’s only crow’s a-singin’ (oh yes!)
It’s this rain they’re bringing (Rain they’re bringing!)

Turn to the left: See the rain
Turn to the right: Feel the rain
Look out behind you! Look out behind you!
Look out behind you! It’s coming down

Crows are singing
This rain they’re bringing, I want you
To come in from the rain
Into my arms again
Just like you never left
Make everything the same
The color of your hair
Black and soft and wet
I must be insane
Those birds up in the trees
Are making fun of me
They fly away so free
I’m stuck here on the ground
Drowning in the rain
Hit my head against the wall
Push the rock back up the hill
Dance and dance again, alone
You always made me wait
You always kept me straight
You can’t keep me anymore

Rain, rain, come on in
Can I fix you a drink? Make yourself at home.
Rain, rain, everybody’s gone
Look at me: You’re the only friend I have
There’s no bluebird laughing (oh no!)
There’s no robin crying (oh no!)
There’s only crow’s a-singin’ (oh yes!)
It’s this rain they’re bringing (Rain they’re bringing!)
