Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm,i know; it's been comin' for some time. when it's over, so they say, it'll rain a sunny day,i know; shinin' down like water. I want to know, have you ever seen the rain? i want to know, have you ever seen the rain comin' down on a sunny day? Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,i know; been that way for all my time.'til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow, i know; it can't stop, i wonder.
