lyrics

RIGHTEOUS RAIN
My mouth is a desert, I thirst for her lips
But the hunger inside me she’ll never satisfy
My body is aching for her to come near
How can one broken heart another repair?

Send a righteous rain. Wash away the shame.
Soak me, soothe my pain. Send a righteous rain

How many times have I danced for the rain
With a silvery spoon when I needed a pail?
A spoonful of sugar, I sleep through the night
But the dirt on my face is still there at day’s light

I need the caress of one greater than her
A torrent of tenderness, a heavenly cure
Now open the skies, pour down on my soul
Fill up this emptiness, make this man whole

Break your rainbow promise. Flood this earth again
Float my body to the sky, so I can drink your heavenly waters in
