lyrics

When the rain comes, it gives life to everything.
When the rain comes, it gives life to everything.
But when it comes, it doesn't stay,
and when it goes, it's a long time away.
When the rain comes,
when the rain comes.

The river swells up like a mother with child.
The river swells up like a mother with child.
The river's wide, the river's deep,
and it's a wonder you don't kill us in our sleep.
The river swells up,
the river swells up.

And at times, I may have wondered what all of this was for.
I admit, at times I've wondered what all of this was for.
Did you forget to come and wake us up
for nine hundred years, or what?
But the rain comes,
the rain comes,
the rain comes,
the rain comes.
