Rain fell; it called off play
We ran for shelter
Laughing at the stormy weather
Jack sang bread of heaven
And I thought of you

One sweet day, finally, we'll trace each other
Shine a little light together
Till that day I hear you though you're faraway

I'll walk the earth to find you
And wrap my arms around you
And sing the sweetest songs for you

In all good time we'll come across a mountain haven
Build a house and home and settle
Plant some crops, and pray they'll grow for me and you

Who's to say we might wander in the trees
And shimmer under canopies of autumn's
Rich kaleidoscope of gold and ruby?

I'll walk the earth to find you
And wrap my arms around you
And sing the sweetest words for you

And as for stormy weather
We'll be so good together
I've got to find my way to you

Here and now, the rain's still falling steadily
The damp is crawling up to me, and
Jacks is singing all your favorite melodies

Soon enough I fall into an easy sleep
Now, no one move and no one speak
Let the moonlight carry from me from here to you

I'll walk the earth to find you
Wrap my arms around you
And sing the sweetest songs for you

And as for stormy weather
We'll be so good together
I've got to find a way to you
