The rain came down
The rain came down
The rain came down on me.

The wind blew strong
The summer song
Fades to memory

I knew you when
I loved you then
The summers young and helpless.

You laid me bare
You marked me there
The promises we made.

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why cant we?
You cling to this
You claim your best
If this is what youre offering
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain.

The nighttime creases
Summer schemes
And stretches out to stay.
The sun shines down
You came around
You love easy days.

But now the sun,
The winters come.
I wanted just to say
That if I hold
I'd hope youd fold
Open up inside, inside of me.

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why can't we?
You cling to this
You claim your best
If this is what you're offering
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain.

This winter song
I'll sing along
I've searched its still refrain
I'll walk alone
I've given this, take wing
Celebrate the rain.

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life so why cant we?
You cling to this
You claim your best
If this is what youre offering
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain
I'll take the rain.

Awwww, c'mon rain on him already. Geez this is awful caterwauling - make it stop!
:sleep:
That has to be the most b-o-r-i-n-g REM song EVER. And could it get any longer?
The ice cream dispenser in the cafeteria is currently down for maintenance. Just thought I'd share my sorrow.
Booorring Ack! Can this just end already? How many times is he gonna take the rain? I'm ready to take the train.
I didn't care for the new album that much but I love this song

Listening to REM (of any vintage) does not make you more "mature" or "sophisticated". You'll know you're mature when you listen to music because you like it, not because you think it'll make you cool.
Oh man!, I've had it wrong all this time? Well, cheese-n-rice! What about a cool emoticon? (pimp)

I like the post-Bill Berry, more 'mature' REM. Makes me feel like a sophisticated 20-something who's mellowing out a bit.

Well done
