Eastern Rain


Lyrics

Rain comes from the east one night We watch it come To hang like beaded curtains till the morning sun Water dripping from our clothes You, with raindrops on your nose, Ask me sadly, "Please don't go away, no" "Till the rain is done," I say, "I'll stay now"

Rain outside but inside we don't mind at all Shadows by the fire Slowly climb and fall Kisses fade and leave no trace Whispers vanish into space None will send me on a chase to nowhere

What matters if I were the first to go there?

Morning comes up from the east We watch it come And far away now rolls the angry rain god's drum You, with daybreak in your eyes Afraid to speak for telling lies I watch you search for some reply to lend me But when the rain is done we'll stop pretending
