the rain lyrics – dmx

[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
uh.. uh.. uh, uh, uh
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
it’s not that we gotta do what we do
it’s what we know, so to me it ain’t nuttin but bein true but
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
it doesn’t have to be the way it is, you say it is
just because for the past 20 years, every day it is
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
i wanna be able to walk out my front door
without worryin about comin in conflict with the law, cause
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
if i follow him, they’ll follow me
and i’ll speak life into the word that you can see
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
we get away with everyday sh*t, but everyday sh*t
catches up to you and when it does you can’t say sh*t!
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
if i don’t, you will, when i won’t, you steal
what makes it feel like we gots to kill?
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
how many more lives must we lose?
how many more times must we choose to trust these fools?
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
i gave it to you straight don’t mix it twist it up on some slick sh*t
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
i don’t have to talk to it any more
i don’t have to walk to it any more, i’m out the door [slam]
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
i wanna find peace with the lord
i don’t wanna find a beast with the sword, i can’t afford to
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
when every day of my life
is a constant fight between wrong and right
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
i thank you lord for my life
thank you lord for keepin it loose when things got tight
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
only i can stop the rain
only i can stop the pain, yeahh
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
only i can stop, the rain, stop, the rain, yeahh – what?
… grrrr, only i (only i) can stop (can stop) the rain (the rain)
only i can stop the rain, cause the rain falls on me
[singing] now i know, only i, can stop the rain
only i can stop the rain

[thunderclap]
