Red Rain

Peter Gabriel

  Red rain is coming down, red rain
  Red rain is pouring down, pouring down, all over me

I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream
  I cannot make a single sound as you scream    
  It can't be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
We touch, this place is so quiet, sensing that storm


Well I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town
They tell you that this rain can sting, and look down
There is no blood around see no sign of pain
No pain, seeing no red at all, see no rain


Putting the pressure on much harder now
To return again and again

Just let the red rain splash you
Let the rain fall on your skin
I come to you defences down
With the trust of a child


And I can't watch any more, no more denial
It's so hard to lay down in all of this

chorus - repeat 3 times
- I see it - I'm bathing in - I'm begging you
Over me in the red red sea
Over me  Over me Red rain
