Lyrics

Out upon the boulevard,
Where lovers walk out of the dark
Like strangers from a far or foreign place
A sea of jade, a moon lit night,
Illuminated street car lights,
A crowded bar, no shelter from the shade.
A sanctuary that's lost in time,
A deep oasis of the mind,
A cool wind takes you back to better days.
Then lightening cracks the sky again
The howling of the wind begins
And you are lost, as surely as you say.

Black Rain, comes thundering down
Black Rain, comes thundering down

The street lights flicker to survive
And sway into the dead of night
Like trees upon a land of broken glass.
The sirens fade like drowning men
And we are on our own again,
This ship of life is surely sinking fast.

Black Rain, comes thundering down
Black Rain, comes thundering down

No place to run, no higher ground,
Nobody else for miles around,
A disappearing world before your eyes.
The streets lay empty, cold as steel,
This vacant land is so surreal
The thunder breaks, and you are still alive,

Black Rain, comes thundering down
Black Rain, comes thundering down

I don't want to wait till the sun goes down,
It ain't safe to be alone here when there's no one around.
And what's hiding in the shadows as the daylight fades
Like a hunger in the blackness of this city of rain

Black black rain comes thundering down,
Black black rain comes thundering down,
Black black rain comes thundering down
