A midnight hour loneliness and so thickens our test
Telephone, an object of empty treasure chests
The lightning slipped away again, the ambiance was lost
So he reached for the receiver, his options to exhaust

A miracle, a wisdom, a chance that she had chased
And all the thunder in between that her efforts won't erase
Well, she said she wasn't waiting, just about to understand
And the squall began abating, til the telephone rang

Said, could I give you a bucket of rain water?
Cause it's just about the most beautiful thing I know
It's yours to drink, to spill, to give
You know, it's greater then the seeds we sow

Woman, will you take this, this bucket from your man?
How is it that you will never, ever understand?
You're only taking punches and then you coyly rob me
Of the clouds that cast their shadows on this broken hearted love
But as the story goes, believing what we will
The gentle coexistence, it turns out, it wasn't even real
Another placid daydream, winds up in disarray
And the only thing the prince learns is how to run away

Could I give you a bucket of rain water?
Cause it's just about the most beautiful thing I know
Said, it's yours to drink, to spill, to give
You know, it's greater then those seeds we sow

The midnight hour loneliness falls upon us once again
How we never hold accountable all the questions we let in
To relieve us of our guilt, that's a guilt we don't deserve
Cause nature isn't built, my friend, that's a memory well served
The tempest, the mistakes, the royalty resides
The spirit of integrity as he and she collide
And some will spill their water from the bucket they were given
Some folks drink too much and then they miss the point of living
And others, they will water all the seeds they have sown
And I will build a monument that cannot be torn down

So, could I give you a bucket of rain water?
Cause it's just about the most beautiful thing I know
Said it's yours to drink, to spill, to give
You know, it's greater then those seeds we sow
So much greater than those seeds we sow
Sow
