Lyrics

Only love
Can make it rain
like when the beach is kissed by the sea
Only love
Can make it rain
Like the sweat of two lovers laying in the fields.

Love, reign over me
Love, reign over me, reign all over me
Rain on me

Only love
Can bring the kind of rain
That makes you yearn all the way up to the sky
Oh, only love
Can bring the kind of rain
That falls just like tears, tears from on high

Oh love reign all over me
love reign all over me, reign over me
Rain on me

On the dry and dusty road
When we’re apart and I’m all alone
Oh, I’m trying to get back home to cool cool rain
I can't sleep so I stay at home and think
The night is hot and just black as ink
Lord, I need me a one more drink of that cool, cool, cool rain
Love, reign over me
Love, reign over me, reign all over me
Rain on me, rain on me
Reign all over me

Love, love
