rain is falling lyrics – electric light orchestra

(rain, rain, go away, come again another day.)

early in the morning,
the sun was up and the sky was very blue.
without a warning,
as i looked out, my thoughts returned to you.
a noise in the city made the children run
and hide themselves away
and thunder boomed and lightning filled the sky.

looking from this window,
a thousand rivers running past my door.
standing on an island,
looking for someone upon the sh*r*.
i can see it very clearly,
nothing’s really changed,
then lightning strikes across an empty sky.

ooh, the rain is falling.
ooh, the rain is falling.
ooh, the rain is falling.
will it wash away the lonely tears?

(it’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.)

with their brand-new time transporter,
they’ll think maybe i fought to get away.
but with all their great inventions
and all their good intentions, here i stay.
down on the corner, where the sun had shone,
the people gathered ’round,
then scattered as the raindrops h*t the ground.

ooh, the rain is falling.
ooh, the rain is falling.
i said, ooh, the rain is falling.
will it wash away the lonely tears?

(it’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.)

ooh, the rain is falling.
i said, ooh, the rain is falling.
ooh, rain keeps on falling, falling.
will it wash away the lonely tears?

(it’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.)
(rain, rain, go away, come again another day.)
