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
Since you gone
Deep inside it hurts
I'm just another sad
Guest on this dark earth
I want to believe in the
Mercy of the world again
Make it rain, make it rain
The nite's too quiet
Stretched out alone
I need the whip of thunder
And the winds dark moan
I'm not Able, 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
Just make it rain
With out her love
With out your kiss
Hell can't burn me
More than this
I'm burning up all this pain
Open up the heavens
Make it rain
I'm born to trouble
I'm born to fate
Inside a
Promise I can't escape
It's the same old world
But nothing looks the same
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
