Kim Baker: Music & Lyrics

Pray to the Rain

(Words and music by Kim Baker)
Copyright 2004
I am always trying to find the beauty in a difficult situation, even when things aren't going so well in my life. This song will always remind me of Timothy Enos, who came up with the title at the last concert he was able to attend before his passing. Thank you sweet daddy. This one's for you.

I tried, to hold you up
To help you see, the beauty that shines in your eyes

Well I tried and I tried, with all of my might
To see clear to your eyes, but I fell, over and over again
I'm sorry, if I caused you any pain
How I pray to the rain
To come and cleanse my sorrow
Maybe tomorrow

Oh the love, that I was blessed to touch
Wanted to hold onto it so much, but it wasn't up to me

Well I tried and I tried, with all of my might
To see clear to your eyes, but I fell, over and over again
I'm sorry, if I caused you any pain
How I pray to the rain
To come and cleanse my sorrow
Maybe tomorrow

Now the rain has ceased, and I can finally feel the peace, again
I let you go, and I know, that we'll be okay

Well I tried and I tried, with all of my might
To see clear to your eyes, but I fell, over and over again
I'm sorry, if I caused you any pain
How I pray to the rain
To come and cleanse my sorrow
Maybe tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow
~
