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 now
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
The dawn will send me on a chase to nowhere
Why cry as if I were the first to go there

And I know I shouldn't be here
Yes, I know I should go home
But that eastern rain drones in my brain
And I'm so all alone, so all alone

Morning comes up from the east, we watch it come
And far away now rolls the ancient 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 there's no pretending

And I know I shouldn't be here
Yes, I know I should go home
But that eastern rain drones in my brain
And I'm so all alone, so all alone
