Verse:

Am
   the rain came down
Fmaj7
   the rain came down
Am                G      F
   the rain came down on me.
Am
   the wind blew strong
Fmaj7
   the summer song
Am          G   F
   fades to memory

I knew you when, I loved you then
The summer's yonder hopeless ???
You made me their, you marked me there
The promises we made

Chorus: C Am Em F

C           Am                 Em
I used to think as birds take wing
                  F
they sing through life so why can't we?
C             Am                  Em
you cling to this, you claim your best
             F
if this is what you're offering
C             Am                  Em      F
I'll take the rain, I'll take the rain

The nightime creases summer schemes
Stretches out to stay
The sun shines down you came around
You love the easy things

But now the sun
The winters come
I wanted just to say
But if i hold, I hoped you'd fold
Open up and start to sigh again


This winter song must sing along
My search did still refrain
I walk alone given this tailplane?
Celebrate the rai-in.
