(Concerto for a rainy day...) 
(Rain...)

I'm standing in the rain 
I'm waiting all alone 
I'm so tired 
I want to go home.

I'm standing in the rain 
Getting soaking wet 
I'm doing my best 
But what do I get?

I'm standing in the rain 
Can't seem to get along 
People rushing by 
Wish they could hear my song.
	
I'm standing in the rain 
It's teeming down on me 
Cats & dogs 
I want to be free.

I'm standing in the rain 
Doing my thing 
I'm trying my best 
What does it bring? 
I'm standing in the rain 
Getting soaking wet 
I'm doing my best 
But what does it get?

The good intentions and the pain 
Lay drowned now in the pouring rain 
I tried to be so good this time 
But here I am under the sky.

The good intentions and the pain 
Lay drowned now in the pouring rain.
