The Nightwatchman - Gone Like Rain lyrics

With downcast eyes
The multitude sat
As the cattle cars pulled
Along the rusty tracks
One raised his hand
In the fading light
Said, excuse me sir
This doesn't seem right
Now he's…

Gone like whispers
Gone like rain
Gone like the faithful
While the faithless remain
Gone like the stone
The builder refused
Gone and overdue

There's a river in Texas
With a strong undertow
No one crosses it to freedom
No one pans for gold
Its waters are clear
But its waters are cold
Its current is swift
And no one knows where it goes
It's just…

Gone like whispers
Gone like rain
Gone like the faithful
While the faithless remain
Gone like the stone
The builder refused
Gone and overdue

In a cold desert corner
Don't appear on no map
Coyote's scream
Rips the night in half
He hears the devil coming
Footsteps on the path
So he chews off his own leg
To get out of the trap
And he's…

Gone like whispers
Gone like rain
Gone like the faithful
While the faithless remain
Gone like the stone
The builder refused
Gone and overdue
