The rain has come, come and gone again
Just like it did, way back when
There's not much to say
And not much to think
Other than to pour us another drink
And talk of the things that matter to us

The sun has left, to come back another day
The moon follows behind on its merry way
There's no light but the candle burning low
The whiskey burns and the record plays slow
You get up to dance
And I can't help but sway along...

Sweet, sweet movement plays the shadow
Soft, Soft graces touches the air
We are only here, and no where else
We are only here, and no one else
We are only here, and the world is left behind

The remnants of the rain still hangs upon the trees
Falling to the dampened earth with effortless ease
The pitter-patter rhythms echo in my mind
A sound unlike any other kind
That reminds me of the time come and gone
