Rain on Me

Album: Bring Ya to the Brink (2008)
  • I saw you gather all your hopes
    With all your dreams
    I waved just like a shooting star
    That once had waved to me

    I am a love in mid air
    I think about it I don't care
    Into the fire of despair
    Just like a train that goes nowhere

    But you can rain on me
    Yea you can rain, rain on me

    There was a time I got it wrong
    Is shakes my memory
    And all the time I had it all
    It's just I couldn't see

    I am a robber in the dark
    Singing about a broken heart
    Answering whistles in the air
    Waiting for someone else to care

    But you can rain on me
    Yea you can rain on me
    When the rain came tumbling down
    And both your feet were on the ground, oh
    Running fast and free, oh yea

    Well maybe time's going to wear you out
    Or maybe you're going to come around, or
    We'll just yea

    Well maybe time's going to wear you out
    Or maybe you're going to come around, or
    We'll just wait and see, oh yea

    [Repeat x2]
    But you can rain on me
    Yea you can rain on me Writer/s: CYNDI LAUPER, AXEL HEDFORS, P. CHOU, A. KRONLUND
