  • Lyrics: I toss and I turn My mind seems to spurn all the lessons its learned “What’s done is done.” “Forgive and forget.” “Water under the bridge.” And yet… All of my proverbs are useless today They don’t seem to work in the usual way I’ve made up my mind to leave this behind But my heart just won’t listen And it’s… Steady rain Becoming heavy at times Ready or not Here it comes again Steady rain Becoming heavy at times I know this will end But when, Oh, Lord, when? Alone and afraid Too frightened to face the mistakes that I’ve made Video, TV, drink, cigarette Radio, solitaire, magazines Yet… All of the things that distracted before They don’t take my mind off the pain anymore I’ve called a truce, but there’s just no use Will nobody stop it from raining? And it’s… This can’t last forever Noah knows This just can’t go on Never say never Heaven knows I’ll be alright If I can hold on Just hold on steady
