Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Someone told me long ago
There’s a calm before the storm
I know
And it’s been coming for some time

When it’s over so they say
It’ll bring a sunny day
I know
Shining down like water

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day

Yesterday and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hot
I know
It’s been that way for all my time

Til forever on it goes
Fill the circle fast and slow
I know
And it can’t stop my wonder

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day …

I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
I wanna know
Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day

Have you ever seen the rain?
Have you ever seen the rain?
Have you ever seen the rain?
Have you ever seen the rain? …

Time

We wait for the weekends to go out dancing
We work all week just to get our pay
‘Cause where there’s music there could be romancing
We’re gonna dance the whole night away

You gotta take the time to relax your mind
Switch off and leave your worries behind
For time, it isn’t on our side
We haven’t even got the time to play

Yeah, time
We need more time
Yeah, time
We’re gonna have a good time
Trying to forget the working day

Don’t take it easy, don’t take it slow, oh no, no, no, no
Can’t you feel the burning, can’t you feel the glow? Ah yeah
Life lifts you higher and higher
So just get on down to where the music flows

Gotta take the time to relax your mind
Leave your worries behind
For time, it isn’t on our side
Switch off and let yourself unwind

Time
We need more time
Yeah
Gonna have a good time, good time
Trying to forget the working day....

Gotta take the time to relax your mind
Leave your worries behind
‘Cause time, it isn’t on our side
Switch off and let yourself unwind

Time
I got no time
Yeah
We’re gonna have a good time
Trying to forget the working day

Time
Time
No time
Time
Time
Time
More time
No time.... (fade)
