The rain is falling
Copyright George Papavgeris, April 2003

Two years you tried working on this land
Nothing you could do to make it greener
Two years of fields baking in the sun
Two years of harvest turning into dust
The loans to pay now your dream to sell you must
Yet to succeed no-one could have been keener
There's just enough grain left for one more try
Your future now depends upon the sky

Who said hard work alone would be enough
Who said that simple toil is the solution
Where was the smooth when all we had was rough
When sweat alone the children wouldn't feed.
To see your face so red my heart would bleed
But now it seems we're given absolution
For tools we only have two pairs of hands
But now we have been given one more chance.

First thing tomorrow together we will go
To town to plead the loan to have extended
The ring you gave me I gladly will forego
If that is what it takes to keep them sweet
I'll take in washing and even sweep the streets
It's worth it, for our nightmare now has ended
The worst that fate could send us we survived
And in good time together we will thrive.

The broken ploughshare to fix we can't afford
So we will dig the fields with our own fingers
And in the dirt, I the Lady, you the Lord
Our kingdom we'll establish with our sweat
And better times though will come, we won't forget
The thirst and hunger in the soul that lingers
But now it's time to heaven to give thanks
Let's go out in the rain and have a dance.

(Chorus)
But the rain is falling, pitter-patter falling
And its like we haven't seen for years
And it keeps on falling, pitter-patter falling
Let the rain now wash away your tears
