"Rain" as written by Todd Stuart Hunter, Johanna Paton Pigott and Marc Alexander Hunter....
Billy said this town is dying
It's dying just to be like me
He was fighting everything in sight
Died when he was twenty-three

I used to meet him down at his cafe
He had one eye on the door
And the other on the writing on the wall
He'd get restless and angry and we'd all laugh

'Cause we weren't really scared
We was his friends, he wouldn't hurt us at all
And all he'd say was rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain

Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
We gotta leave this town

And glover was a dancer
Imitating Eddie Cochran by the jukebox
In the corner of the room
'Til he was lost

Barry'n me, we used to escape, playing I go ape
Wearing italian clothes, drinking cider, talking in the rain
Hey babe, come over here, let me buy you a beer, what's your name?
She said "boy, it doesn't really matter, don't you see?"

You ain't what I want, you ain't what I need
You ain't what I fancy, you ain't what I dream of n'I'd silently leave
[?] you're ugly

Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
I gotta leave this place

My history is a cop-out
Somewhere in the dark I got scared 'cause I knew I was gonna lose
You know that feeling you get in your guts, all that frustration when you know
You're going nuts

You gotta make a move
There was Billy and Glover and Pacer and Taylor and Valerie and Barry
I remember what he said about that town
He said "I went to London once, came back

Wiped the tears from my eyes, looked out the window
And it was still pouring down
More of that rain, rain, rain

Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain

I'm gonna get a train
Never coming back again
'Cause if I did it would be the same
Boy, you really messed up my brain

All of that rain rain rain
Rain rain rain
Rain rain rain
Rain rain rain

Take your washing off the line
Take your washing off the line
Take your washing off the line
Take the washing off the line

It's gonna rain
It's gonna rain
