RAIN
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

I’m standing at the railway station
Waiting for the train
And I don’t know my destination
Or where I'm gonna stay
Like everyone I’m on the run, I’m just seeking sun
And running from feeling rain

Cos yesterday the sun was shining
I said I’m gonna stay
But then the storm clouds closed the sky
And I’m on the road again
And every road I’ve ever run
No I’ve never caught the sinking sun
And I can’t escape from the pouring rain
And I’m here again

And I got a long way home
And oh the road is lonely, I've been walking alone
The sun will rise and fall again
And I must go, the sun is gone
But the road is long, I can’t go on
I’m feeling rain

Last night I dreamt I was standing on a train
Looking out at the city lights
And calling out your name
Like everyone I’m on the run, I’m just seeking sun
I need someone to be my refuge from the rain
To make the sun rise again

Cos I got a long way home
But though the road is lonely I’m not walking alone
The sun will rise and I know it must fall again
But I’m not alone, I’m not alone
In feeling rain
