Make It Rain – Tom Waits

June 27, 2008

She took all my money
And my best friend
You know the story
Here it comes again

I have no pride
I have no shame
You gotta make it rain
Make it rain

Since you’re gone
Deep inside it hurts
I’m just another sad guest
On this dark Earth

I wanna believe
In the mercy of the World again
Make it rain
Make it rain

Night’s too quiet
Stretched out alone
I need the whip of thunder
And the winds dark moan

I’m not Abel
I’m just Cain
Open up the Heavens
Make it rain

I’m close to Heaven
Crushed at the gate
They sharpen their knives
On my mistakes

What she done
You can’t give it a name
You gotta just make it rain
Make it rain
Yeah -eh

Without her love
Without your kiss
Hell can’t burn me
More than this

I’m burning with all this pain
Put out the fire
And make it rain

I’m born to trouble
Born to fate
Inside a promise
I can’t escape

It’s the same old World
But nothin’ looks the same
Make it rain
Make it rain

Gotta make it rain
Make it rain
You’ve got to
Make it rain
You got to
Make it rain
You got to

I stand alone here
I stand alone here
Singing

Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
