Break in the Rain

I've been waiting too long, for a break in the rain

Making up some new truth, watching these old clouds move

I'm thinking I might do the same.


I'll will set up my chair here and rock me to the edge of this porch

Hoping I might fall down into the grass and muddy ground

And be someplace I wasn't before.


I get these two feet, but damn them

A broken heart can't beat worth the living

I'm here in the rain and sleet and the wind and...

....God gave me a river for to wash me away.


I've been crying for days now and somehow the sun it never ceases to shine

Lord is this some big trick tell me I can make it

And cross into your loving light


When the man from the town came, he took more than my dear Jenilee

He took my boy Isaiah, and when I see the rain come

I feel like he done taken all of me!


I get these two feet, but damn them

A broken heart can't beat worth the living

I cried and I witnessed lord as he took them

....God gave me a river for to wash me away.
