Box of Rain

 

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.

Maybe the sun is shining, birds are winging, no rain is falling from a heavy sky

What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?

For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago.

 

Walk out of any doorway, feel your way, feel your way like the day before.

Maybe you'll find direction around some corner where its been waitin to meet you.

What do you want me to do?

To watch for you while you're sleeping?

Then please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too. >Lead

 

Look into any eyes you find by you, you can see clear to another day.

Maybe been seen before through other eyes, on other days while going home.

What do you want me to do, to do for you, to see you through?

It's all a dream we dreamed, one after‑noon long a‑go.

 

Walk into splintered sunlight,

inch your way through dead dreams to another land

Maybe you're tired and broken, your tongue is twisted with

Words half‑spoken and thoughts unclear.

 

What do you want me to do, to do for you, to see you through?

A box of rain will ease the pain, and love will see you through.

 

Just a box of rain, wind and water.

Believe it if you need it, if you don't, just pass it on.

Sun and shower, wind and rain,

in and out the window, like a moth before a flame

 

And it's just a box of rain I don't know who put it there;

Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you dare.

And it's just a box of rain or a ribbon for your hair.

Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.
