The Rain Becomes a River

lyrics

Somewhere in the distance, there’s a town
A beautiful place I’ve always heard about
Though clouds obscure the way
With darkness and with doubt
We’ll never find it if we turn around

The rain streaks the windshield like tears
Til the road blues and lines disappear
I’m too scared of stopping, I gotta move
Lest the rain becomes a river and all of our fears come true

Outside in the blackness torches blaze
But they’re not there to light the way
Each flame is held up high
By hands that clench in rage
But they vanish far behind as we escape

The rain streaks the windshield like tears
Til the road blues and lines disappear
I’m too scared of stopping, I gotta move
Lest the rain becomes a river and all of our fears come true

On the air around us, there's a song
The voice is faint but getting strong
It promises a home
To those who never belonged
And when our journey's over we can sing along

The rain streaks the windshield like tears
Til the road blues and lines disappear
I’m too scared of stopping, I gotta move
Lest the rain becomes a river and all of our fears come true
