Listening to the Rain

Vaughn Welches and Nick Cardilino

 

Lying in the quiet, listening to the rain

Watching nature’s teardrops falling down my window pane

Can't seem to clean this closet; so much of you remains

So I lie here in the quiet, listening to the rain

 

I remember when the rain would never get us down

You and I would splash through all those puddles on the ground

We'd laugh and sing 'til we were drenched; oh, how we loved to play

Everything is different now, listening to the rain

 

Lightning flashing and thunder rolling across the sky

It's pouring hard as if the whole world needs to cry

 

So, I’m lying in the quiet, listening to the rain

Wondering if it's true that any good can come from pain

The clouds will part and flow'rs will bloom, but for now, I’ll stay

Lying in the quiet, listening to the rain

 

Just lying in the quiet, listening to the rain
