How long has it been dear
Since we felt the rain?
Endless were our summers
Until the weather changed

Our love was lifted like a harvest
No winter in your eyes
Now cold winds cut right through us
And so the harvest dies

Stranded and lost without you
My pain lives in this house
It's like your heart here, empty and cold dear
My wild birds flyin' south

I know that you can hear me crying
Where did I go wrong?
What brought this storm into your heart
After lovin' me so long?

Someday maybe you'll blame
All this on the rain
But until then love's the one thing
I'll never feel again

And after all my tears have drowned me
And nothing else remains
I'll be one step short of Heaven
Seeking shelter from the rain

Someday maybe you'll blame
All this on the rain
But until then love's one thing
I'll never feel again
