For years I swore I was alone
Walked around with my head down low
I got used to people saying no
Politely, you know

I Kept myself to myself
Others hard and that's the way I felt
For other people there are wedding bells
Believe me, you know

But now and then on crowded streets
I see people looking up at me
Yeah it's better than it used to be
But there's so far to go

I used to swear I was alone
But now I'm seeing people everywhere
My people
Full of sadness and despair
You're my people
Silent 'cross the years
My people
Beautiful like the rain

Beautiful like the rain
Filling up this swimming pool
On a winter afternoon
Watch the ducks as I wait for you
They know me, they do
And all those shadows on my face
The kind that never seem to go away
We can drink together, hey
Remind me of home

I used to swear I was alone
But now I'm seeing people everywhere
My people
Full of sadness and despair
They're my people
Silent across the years
You're my people
We're all just hanging there
Come along, stay a while
Bring a friend, bring them along
Come out, come out
Be silent or shout
Do your thing, put your feathers on
Show your face
Lift it up, this is the place
You don't come a thousand miles to stop now

My people
All this time never saw you there
My people
Silent across the years
You're my people
All just hanging there
My my my
You're my people
Been waiting for this for years

You're beautiful like the rain.
