ready for the rain lyrics – foreigner

(j. edwards / j. northrup / m. jones / t. thomas)

early in the mornin’
before the daylight
i hear the sound of thunder
comin’ thru the night

lie awake and i wonder
where my life is goin’?
am i on a road leadin’ nowhere?
there’s no way of knowin’, oh no

’cause i’ve seen the lightnin’
and i’m ready for the rain to fall

now i’m standin’ on a mountain
lookin’ into the sky
i see the clouds come rollin’ in
water fills my eyes

i don’t know what’s in the future
no one can say
don’t wanna think about the past
i’ve gotta live for today

’cause i’ve seen the lightnin’ now
i need to find my own way
while i’ve still got time

and i’m ready for the rain to fall
’cause i’ve heard the thunder
and i’m ready for the rain to fall
i’m ready, ready for the rain
woah, i’ve got to rise above it all
and get ready for the rain to fall, woah-oh

i’m ready

did you ever know someone
who had lost their way?
built their own little kingdom
and just blew it all away?

i’m not ashamed to admit it
oooh, that someone was me
i’m gonna look to the future now
’cause i’ve set myself free

and i’ve seen the lightnin’, yeah
i’m gonna set myself free
while i’ve still got time

get ready for the rain to fall
’cause i’ve heard the thunder now
i’m ready for the rain to fall
i’m ready, ready for the rain
oh, i’ve got to rise above it all
get ready for the rain to fall
while i’ve still got time

yeah-eah-eah-eh

i’m ready for the rain to fall
’cause i’ve seen the lightnin’
i’m ready for the rain to fall
i’m ready, ready for the rain
oh, i’ve got to rise above it all
and get ready for the rain to fall
while i’ve still got time
get ready for the rain to fall
i’m ready, (ready for the rain)
ready for the rain, to fall
fall down on me, whoaaaaah
i’ve got to rise above it all
(ready for the rain to fall) fall
(fall down on me) ready for the rain to fall
down on me, down on me
(oh) ready for the rain to fall
