The rain came down
The rain came down
The rain came down on me
The wind blew strong
And summer's song
It fades to memory

I knew you when
I loved you then
In summer's yawn, now hopeless
You laid me bare
And marked me there
The promises we made

I used to think, as birds take wing,
They sing through life, so why can't we?
We cling to this, and claim the best
If this is what you're offering
I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain

The nighttime creases
Summer schemes
And stretches out to stay
The sun shines down
You came around
You love the easy days

But now the sun,
The winter's come
I wanted just to say
That if I hold
I'd hope you'd fold
And open up inside, inside of me

(chorus)
I used to think, as birds take wing,
They sing through life, so why can't we?
We cling to this, and claim the best
If this is what you're offering
I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain

This winter's song
I'll sing along
I've searched its still refrain
I'll walk alone
If given this
Take wing, and celebrate the rain

(repeat chorus)

I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain
