v1

Like a candle at the window

That’s how it seems to me

You go down and out

No flicker no flame


v2

I can imagine what it feels like

The more that you press the case

The more that you fall from grace

On the rocks in the rain


ch1

The rocks and the rain

When they're not in sentimental vein

It makes your heart sink with dread

Like a stone in a river bed


v3

From the deadlight when the time’s right

You move on from where you are

You let it go you heal the scars

From rocks in the rain


ch2

The rocks and the rain

In deepest time they still remain

So learn to pitch as you roll

And realise there’s a way to go


v4

Like a phoenix from the ashes

Rise up the holy way

Say what the sophists say

With the wax and the wane

Fly like the eagle flies

Over rocks and the rain

ROCKS & RAIN
