It's been a hard time 
And when it rains 
It rains on me 
The sky just opens 
And when it rains 
It pours 

I walk alone 
Assaulted it seems 
By tears from heaven 
And darling I can't help 
Thinking those tears are yours 

Our wild love came from above 
And wilder still 
Is the wind that howls 
Like a voice that knows it's gone 
Cause darling you died 
And well I cried 
But I'll get by 
Salute our love 
And send you a smile 
And move on 

So darling farewell 
All will be well 
And then all will be fine 
The children will rise 
Strong and happy be sure 
Cause your love flows 
And the corn still grows 
And God only knows 
We're only given 
As much as the heart can endure 

But I don't know why 
But when it rains 
It rains on me 
The sky just opens 
And when it rains 
It pours 

But I look up 
And a rainbow appears 
Like a smile from heaven 
And darling I can't 
Help thinking that smile 
Is yours
