Lyrics

And the cold rain from the Northwest sky is falling down on me
They say the cloud bank stretches to Hawaii
And spring just keeps on coming though the days still feel like ice
And if the sun would just come out again I think we might survive

But the bombs have started raining from the Baghdad sky today
And my children keep on asking about this war
Yes I know that I’m the grown-up but I don’t know what to say
I don’t believe in violence
I don’t believe in hatred
And I think the world’s a scary place to be today
I believe our life is safe here
I trust we won’t be shattered
And I hope the only thing to ever fall on us is rain

We seem to listen to the news a lot these days
And though I know they shouldn’t the children hear it as they play
The weatherman comes on to say the Middle East is dry
The wind and sand and fear are blowing arid through the sky

But the bombs just keep on raining from the Baghdad sky tonight
And I’m sure the stars are up there behind the smoky light
And my children ask if school is off and how long we’ll be at war
But I don’t believe in violence
And I don’t believe in hatred
And I think the world’s a scary place to be today
I believe our life is safe here
I trust we won’t be shattered
And I hope the only thing to ever fall on us is rain

Hush my darlings close your eyes
Listen to the rain tonight falling peaceful from the sky
Hush my darlings go to sleep
Close your eyes and dream of happiness and peace

It’s raining it’s pouring the old man is dropping bombs
It’s raining it’s pouring the old man is dropping bombs
It’s raining it’s pouring the old men are dropping bombs
