Mission In The Rain Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I turn and walk away
Then I come 'round again
It looks as though tomorrow
I'll do pretty much the same

I must turn down your offer
But I'd like to ask a break
You know I'm ready to give everything
For anything I take

Someone called my name
You know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the mission
And the bells were not for me

Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain
Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain

Ten years ago, I walked this street
My dreams were riding tall
Tonight I would be thankful Lord
For any dream at all

Some folks would be happy
Just to have one dream come true
But everything you gather
Is just more that you can lose

Someone called my name
You know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the mission
And the bells were not for me

Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain
Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain

All the things I planned to do
I only did half way
Tomorrow will be Sunday
Born of rainy Saturday

There's some satisfaction
In the San Francisco rain
No matter what comes down
The mission always looks the same

Someone called my name
You know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the mission
And the bells were not for me

Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain
Come again, walking along
In the mission in the rain
