[Intro: Rhy. fig 1]
[Rhy. fig 1]
Tell me what you want me to be
I can't stand myself anymore
Tell me what you want me to see
I can't find my way off the floor

[Rhy. fig 2]
Took me like a hurricane

[Rhy. fig 3]
I think it's gonna rain, yeah
I think it's gonna rain
Rain down on me

[Rhy. fig 1]

[Rhy. fig 1]
Tell me what you want me to hear
Whisper words inside of my head
Thunder like a gun in my ear
Clouds are burstin' over my bed

[Rhy. fig 2]
Wash me like a hurricane

[Rhy. fig 3]
I think it's gonna rain, yeah
I think it's gonna rain
I think it's gonna rain down down down
I think it's gonna rain

[Rhy. fig 4a and 4b]
You can't deny
It's just a fantasy, yeah
Some things will end, some will begin
Some things will never be
Yeaaah

[Solo 1 over Rhy. fig 5][Solo 2 over Rhy. fig 6]
Rain down on me

[Rhy. fig 1]
Tell me what you want me to know
Tell me what you're dyin' to say
Throw your feelings up in the air
Let the pieces fall where they may

[Rhy. fig 4a and 4b]
You can't deny
It's just a fantasy, yeah
Some things will end, some will begin
Some things will never be
Yeaaaaah

[Rhy. fig 3]
I think it's gonna rain
I think it's gonna rain
I think it's gonna rain, yeah
I think it's gonna rain

[Rhy. fig 1]
Rain down on me
Rain down on me
Rain down on me
