Rain
Bishop Allen Lyrics


Bed clothes, why am I in bed clothes?
watching out the window
watching what I don't know
on the fire escape now
hands they start to shake now
ready for the rail to break now
and I'm awake at last awake

Cursing, rattling and cursing
go ahead and do your worst then
your worst that I can take

Oh let the rain fall down
and wash this world away
oh let the sky be grey
cause if its ever gonna get any better
its gotta get worse for a day

Morning, where am I this morning?
now its really pouring,
crawling up this shore
and I walk the neighborhood
and umbrella does no good
and I guess its in my blood
couldn't stop the flood

Drowning, everything is drowning
go ahead and take the town
the town is yours to take

Oh let the rain fall down
and wash this world away
oh let the sky be grey
cause if its ever gonna get any better
its gotta get worse for a day

Calling, calling, falling, falling
grab on my guitar
and paddle with both my arms
headed where the voices are
I'll end up far so far away

Oh let the rain fall down
and wash this world away
or let the sky be grey
cause if its ever gonna get any better
its gotta get worse for a day

its gotta get worse for a day
its gotta get worse for a day
its gotta get worse for a day
I know
its gotta get worse for a day

lol so good on so many levels. Lyrics play so well into each other, many entry points but still catchy. So many people are missing out

Ariel Schwartz

this song puts a smile on my face.

Ari Korin

Bishop Allen is just brilliant.

Milo Leigh

Kurt Juergens

They played this last month at the Glasslands. It was awesome.

Chris Borgars-Smith

I'm going to be spending all night working for an academic parasite. By my estimation, that means I will hear this song one hundred and twenty times tonight.

Quality. Proper summer song.
