  • I don't know where I crossed the line
    Was it something that I said
    Or didn't say this time
    And I don't know if it's me or you
    But I can see the skies are changing
    In all the shades of blue
    And I don't know which way it's gonna go

    If it's gonna be a rainy day
    There's nothing we can do to make it change
    We can pray for sunny weather
    But that won't stop the rain
    Feeling like you got no place to run
    I can be your shelter 'til it's done
    We can make this last forever
    So please don't stop the rain

    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain
    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain

    I thought that time was on our side
    I've put in far too many years
    To let this pass us by
    You see life is a crazy thing
    There'll be good time and there'll be bad times
    And everything in between
    And I don't know which way it's gonna go

    If it's gonna be a rainy day
    There's nothing we can do to make it change
    We can pray for sunny weather
    But that won't stop the rain
    Feeling like you got no place to run
    I can be your shelter 'til it's done
    We can make this last forever
    So please don't stop the rain

    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain
    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain

    Oh, we're a little closer now
    And finally what life's it's all about
    Yeah I know you just can't stand it
    When things don't grow your way
    But we've got no control over what happens anyway

    If it's gonna be a rainy day
    There's nothing we can do to make it change
    We can pray for sunny weather
    But that won't stop the rain
    Feeling like you got no place to run
    I can be your shelter 'til it's done
    We can make this last forever
    So please don't stop the rain

    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain
    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Please don't stop the rain

    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Can't stop it, can't stop it, just can't stop the rain
    (Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
    Let it fall, please don't stop the rain Writer/s: JAMES MORRISON, RYAN TEDDER
