Horrorshow - The Rain lyrics

Have you ever had a day that you wanted to erase?
Tear the page out the history books and try again
But you knew that you couldn't
So you put on a brave face
And waited til you could make your escape
And when you finally got away from the people
And the gossip and the judgement in their gaze
You let your guard down and something just gave
All of a sudden a tears falling til they're running down your face
Whatever it was
You fought with your friend
Or your boss or maybe you got a heart that won't mend
Or you struggling with the rent, or missing someone you lost
Or maybe you just tired of pretending
You feel the weight like a pain in your chest
Til you strain and you ache and you break and you sob
And grey til it stops til it fades til it's gone
Like the tears sorta washed it all away
Sometimes I like to think it's the same with drops of rain
That each one's just a tear falling off of God's face
Sitting all alone in the clouds looking down on us all
Watching every mistake that was ever made
Every bit of pain
Every murder
Every rape
Every person who's having a shitty day
Taking it all in til he breaks down and cries
TIl his eyes dry up and he gets on with it again
And I had this very faith tested on an ordinary day
I was walking down a busy street around my way
I saw a face in the crowd that made my beart skip a beat
A man who looked exactly like an older version of me
So I moved through the hustle and the bustle of the day to day
Until me and this man stood face to face
We locked eyes and for a moment time moved in slow motion
As the crowd around continued on their paper chase
I stood frozen in disbelief
And opened my mouth to speak
But to my surprised the words wouldn't come
And then he looks into a clear blue sky up above
And says "It's gonna rain" - and then it does
And as the rain came down like missles from the sky
Set on a collision course from the heavens to the ground
He's just standing in the middle of it all
Unconcerned by the panic and the people runing around
So I stepped to this man with my hand outstretched
Just to offer him some help to get the storm up of his head
He took my hand down and we stood geting drenched
He looked me in the eyes with a smile this is what he said:
Hush child
From the joy to the pain
It'll all wash away in the rain
Hush child
From the joy to the pain
It'll all wash away in the rain
So play this song on the days when the rain keeps on
And you wait and you pray it'll stop
And if you stuck in a storm
Then spare a second for the thought
That we all at the mercy of the gods
So instead of looking for somewhere to place the blame
Just accept it as a part of that big lazy eight
Go outside and stand under the clouds
And embrace it as the rain keeps plummeting down
And say: Hush child
From the joy to the pain
It'll all wash away in the rain
Hush child
From the joy to the pain
It'll all wash away in the rain
From the million dollar brands to the tags on the train
It'll all wash away in the rain
From the birth to the dirt man
The cradle to the grave
It'll all wash away in the rain
What's been and gone
Will come again
It'll all wash away in the rain
So hush child
From the joy to the pain
It'll all wash away in the rain.
