Rain comes from the east one night
To hang like beaded curtains till the morning sun
You, with raindrops on your nose,
"Till the rain is done," I say, "I'll stay now"
Rain outside but inside we don't mind at all
Slowly climb and fall
Whispers vanish into space
What matters if I were the first to go there?
Morning comes up from the east
And far away now rolls the angry rain god's drum
Afraid to speak for telling lies
But when the rain is done we'll stop pretending
