Rain on the city
Rain out on the sea
Rain down on the people in the street

Rain on the window
From far out in the land
Rain come down to rest in my hand

As a couple opens one umbrella
And goes along their way
There's a guy with bags looking for a cab
And it is not his day
Running to the corner a girl with flowers
Hair down in her face
And everybody's trying to get away

Tears come on down
And join the falling rain
Go back to the place from where you came

You know it's hard in the city
And this place gets so cold
Rain can I go with you when you go

There's an empty bed a broken desk
A temporary home
There's a thing I saw and then I heard
And it won't leave me alone
We'll go walk the streets you and me
Follow me in the gutter
We are going down to the river

Rain on the city
Rain on the city

We will all come down a peaceful sound
And rise up with the sun
We will gather there up in the air
And fly over everyone
We collide and change and fall again
On some city day
And help somebody wash something away

Rain on the City
Rain on the City

Rain on the City
Rain on the City
