Choose your friends, carefree and kindly
Always take a toll on the conscience

A ticket to life as the mother once told me
Are gonna have to come after the rain
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train
Everybody says that life takes patience
Avoid the taste of wanting and wasteful
Take your time rather than hurry

Always be there to lend a comforting shoulder
The blue skies we wait on
Rain, yeah
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train

Gonna have to come after the rain (rain)
But nobody wants to wait
But nobody wants to be saved
Envy and greed will only lead to frustration
But nobody wants to wait
All of your life has been rambling, scurrying
But nobody wants to wait
Stick with your pride and you’re gonna be lonely
Old mistakes committed upon us
The light in the tunnel is just another runaway train
Spend your days happy and grateful
Never forget to remember forgiveness
Gonna have to come after the rain
Everybody says we need salvation

The blue skies we wait on
Everybody says we need salvation
Never too late to write the rest of your story
Choose your words, careful and wisely
Life’s no race, it’s a companion
One will be there to share a day when you’re older (a day when you’re older)
Remember to breathe or else you’re gonna be sorry
Everybody says that life takes patience
Gonna have to come after the rain (rain, yeah)
Every good thing will come in moderation
But nobody wants to be saved
Everybody says we need salvation
Always face with reckless abandonment
Are gonna have to come after the rain
Every regret is a gift that you live with
Rain
But nobody wants to be saved
Are gonna have to come after the rain

Everybody says that life takes patience
The blue skies we wait on
