Like A River Dreams Of Rain Lyrics

by Joe Diffie

I took the last drag of my last lucky
As I left that old caf
I heard the gravel crunchin' like our broken hearts
As I watched her walk away

We were close to almost perfect
I could've swore she was the one
But ain't it funny how the little loose things
Can make it all come undone

But I keep one foot in front of the other
I'm just tryin' to outrun the pain
And I keep dreamin' of that perfect love
Like a river dreams of rain

Well, I've been through the droughts and the deserts
Yeah, this ain't my first dry spell
Until I find it strange to feel my old can tin
I just throw another nickel in the well

And put one foot in front of the other
I'm just tryin' to outrun the pain
And I keep dreamin' of that perfect love
Like a river dreams of rain

And when the rain comes and I know it will
I'm gonna let it soak me to the bone
I'm gonna stand out in it and drink my fill
And let that come and pull me home

Until then I'll keep one foot in front of the other
I'm just tryin' to outrun the pain
And I'll keep dreamin' of that perfect love
Like a river dreams of rain
Oh, like a river dreams of rain
