I'll Take The Rain Lyrics

by REM

The rain came down
The rain came down
The rain came down on me
The wind blew strong
The summer song
Fades to memory

I knew you when
I loved you then
The summer's young and helpless
You laid me bare
You marked me there
The promises we made

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why can't we?
You cling to this
You claim your 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 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
Open up inside, inside of me

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why can't we?
You cling to this
You claim your 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 song
I'll sing along
I've searched it's still refrain
I'll walk alone
I've given this, take wing
Celebrate the rain

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why can't we?
You cling to this
You claim your best
If this is what you're offering

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

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