Look out of any window 
Any morning, any evening, any day
 Maybe the sun is shining  Birds are winging or
Rain is falling from a heavy sky,
What do you want me to do,
To do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed 
One afternoon long ago 
Walk out of any doorway 
Feel your way, feel your way
Like the day before  Maybe you'll find direction  Around some corner  Where it's been waiting to meet you,
What do you want me to do,
To watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised 
When you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
You find by you, you can see 
 Clear through to another day
 Maybe been seen before 
 Through other eyes on other days 
 While going home,
What do you want me to do,
To do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed 
One afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams 
To another land
 Maybe you're tired and broken 
Your tongue is twisted 
With words half spoken 
And thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
To do for you to see you through 
A box of rain will ease the pain 
And love will see you through 

Just a box of rain,
Wind and water,
 Believe it if you need it,
If you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower,
Wind and rain,
In and out the window 
Like a moth before a flame 

And it's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there  Believe it if you need it
Or leave it if you dare
And it's just a box of rain
Or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone 
And a short time to be there
