about

Some songs are simple. This one is not. The lyrics were written on three levels. One as a love song, one as an allegory in which tears are rain, and one as a prayer inspired by the “Live Aid” movement of 1985. Probably my favourite track from the Album.

lyrics

Borne on seas of endless waves
He takes his chance… romantic gaze
Across the room to watch the sunshine
Rise on distant hills.

After all is said and done
Reads his map to move along,
Back to lands extolled in virtue
By elders in his youth.

But then to find, lost in deserts, unholy
Left behind… on his knees down to pray to…

Bring down the rain, bring down the rain
To ease the pain, just once again.
Bring down the rain, bring down the rain
To ease the pain, just once again
Bring down the rain ah ah
Bring down the rain ah ah ah…

Back at home the choirboy’s sing
Hail Mary’s from the oceans ring
The sword that hangs inside the convert
Falls to earth once more

The blade is cut and rent apart
Spilling fears inside his heart
And so to end in final conflict
The nightmare of his youth

But then to find, lost in deserts, unholy,
Left behind… on his knees down to pray to…

Bring down the rain, bring down the rain
To ease the pain, just once again.
Bring down the rain, bring down the rain
To ease the pain, just once again
Bring down the rain ah ah
Bring down the rain ah ah ah…

Repeat twice after solo…
