Dear Rain

Written prior to Black Saturday. The drought was already 10 years old . After the great fire I shelved the song because I couldn't decide which of the 286 mixes would be best. Not much later the rain returned in full force. Severe floods, one after the other, and in truly biblical proportions, drowned the side that hadn't been burnt.


Dear Rain

Dear Rain,
where have you been so long?
We like to have you here...
Dear Rain,
you will remember us,
you know we hold you dear...

Dear Rain,
Why do you shun the sun?
What did she do to you?
We love the sun! We love the moon!
And you know we love you too....


Lalalalala... lalalalala... here comes the RAIN!

And when the rain comes
and the sun shines
there'll be colours
up in the sky
we will wake up
in a sea of flowers
and our heart
and soul is filled with light

Ahaaha...ahaahaa...oooh ho ho etc.

The wind's been blowing.. red hot dust into our eyes
as we try and squeeze some water from some stone.
Our sweat is dripping, pearls of salt onto the earth
and the wind has been blowing FOREVER AND EVER..
