I had troubles aplenty, My pockets were empty From livin' out on the sidewalk. Footsteps takin' me nowhere, But where can you go when you don't know What it is you're lookin' for?
Just as I was a desperate man You made the sun start to shine, You said,"baby, come in from the rain".
You could see down the stitches and patches That were holdin' me together, So with stolen faces, hand in hand, We made footsteps together for musicland.
Used to be I had troubles aplenty, My pockets were empty, yeah, From the bad life on the back streets. But when your footsteps are takin' you nowhere Where can you go and what can you do When you don't know what you're lookin' for?
Hey, just as I reached the real world You made the sun start to shine, You said,"baby, come in out of the rain". Oh, yeah, I said you made the sun start to shine, Oh, baby, come in from the rain.
