I cannot go any more to the marshes
Where the gatekeeper smiles at the poisons he's made,
For my heart belongs to the one on the mountain
Where doves build their nests in the sun-ripened glade

For I am the Mercury, the light of the morning,
Looking for shelter in this thunder and this rain
And you, like some windmill, weave light where it's storming
Your love like a potion for the hunger and the pain

Let it rain

I have been bought, I've been sold in the city
I've dined with the demons and I drank of their fear
But you, you have watched and waited in silence
Come cradle my heart with a homecoming tear

And we are the Mercury, the light of the morning,
Looking for shelter in this thunder and this rain
And we, like some windmill, weave light where it's storming
And love like a potion for the hunger and the pain

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain on the mountain
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain on the mountain

Let it rain, come, let it rain, let it rain on the mountain
Let it rain, oh, let it rain, let it rain on the mountain

(repeat and fade)
