Pray For Rain


There's a woman -- she's a hungry soul
Seeking knowledge -- she's a thirsty child
Wanting wisdom without growing old
She's learned to walk but she's walked for miles

'Cause the fields are parched and the well is dry
You can see the fear right behind the eyes
But there's nothing there
Just an empty sky
Pray for rain

There's a young man -- he's a broken soul
Crying "Freedom" -- he's run out of tears
Begging mercy -- nothing left to hold
He sings a song far beyond his years

'Cause the fields are parched and the well is dry
You can see the fear right behind the eyes
But there's nothing there
Just an empty sky
Pray for rain

Perhaps if we come as children and learn to cry aloud
Look up and watch the horizon
God once came in a cloud

Perhaps if we come as children and learn to cry aloud
Look up and watch the horizon
God came
God once came in a cloud

There's a country -- it was made of gold
It went hungry -- everyone was calm
People starving -- they had empty souls
And nothing grows 'cause the water's gone

And the fields are parched and the well is dry
You can see the fear right behind the eyes
But there's nothing there
Just an empty sky
Empty sky
There's an empty sky
Pray for rain
Pray for rain
Pray for --
