I Can Be The Rain
words and music by Mark Herring
 

I was thinkin just the other day
How you and I have grown in different ways
Yea, the contrast is beautiful, if you see it the right way
You’re the one who sticks straight to your plans
Me I find it hard to follow through
Like a child in a playground, I’ll be chasing something new

We ain’t found a problem that we can’t get around
With my head in the clouds and your feet on the ground
You can be the constant, I can be the change
You can bring a life that simple, I can bring the fame
You can be the pleasure, I can bring the pain
You can be all the sunshine, and I can be the rain
I can be the rain

I was thinkin just the other day
How we’re so different in the things we do
Yea what’s no big deal to me, can tend to bother you
You’re the one who likes to get things right
I’m OK if we just let it slide
Yea, we’ll work it out tomorrow, if it don’t get done tonight

But we ain’t found a problem that we can’t get around
With my head in the clouds and your feet on the ground
You can be the constant, I can be the change
You can bring a life that simple, I can bring the fame
You can be the pleasure, I can bring the pain
You can be all the sunshine, and I can be the rain
I can be the rain
I can be the rain falling down on a sunless day
I can wash all the blues away
Clean us up for a brand new day
You can be the constant, I can be the change
You can bring a life that simple, I can bring the fame
You can be the pleasure, I can bring the pain
You can be all the sunshine, and I can be the rain
I can be the rain
