Song Lyric Sunday – When the Rain Comes by Citizen Zero

Citizen Zero has been my new favorite band for a while now.  When I first heard their album last year, I immediately fell in love and couldn’t wait to see them live in concert.  Surprisingly, I didn’t have to wait as long as I thought  I would.  They actually came to our city in February and I bought tickets almost the same day I found out.

As I’ve mentioned, the guitarist, Sammy, is my co-worker’s son.  I met him after the concert while standing in line for merchandise.  Not only is he freaking AMAZING on the guitar, he is also the most humble, sweetest guy.

Listening to this song, I’m reminded that although rain can be dark and dreary, it can also be beautiful in its gloom.  When it comes to an end, it leaves the world a little fresher and cleaner then when it arrived.  I don’t think I could live in a climate with constant rain, but I would miss it if I never experienced it again.

So, here’s to my renewed love for rain.  I hope you enjoy the song and the band as much as I do!

When the Rain Comes by Citizen Zero
Lyrics by Citizen Zero (I’m assuming)
I actually wrote the lyrics out since I couldn’t find them anywhere online.  There were a few words I was unsure about, but I think the basics are there.

I woke up
To my own footsteps on the roof
Still chilled from
The dance we shared the night before

So ungraceful
I stumbled over you
And just fell down
Into the ground

Still stumbling
I found my way back home alone
And just stayed up
To watch the rain fall

And when those clouds roll in
That shade me from the sun
Colors fade to blacks and grays
When the rain comes
When the rain comes

Rain, rain come today
And bring me a new day
And wash away
Pieces of my every day

Still stumbling
I found my way back home alone
And just stayed up
To watch the rain come

And when those clouds roll in
That shade me from the sun
Colors fade to blacks and grays
When the rain comes
When the rain comes
When the rain comes

And when those clouds roll in
That shade me from the sun
Colors fade to blacks and grays
When the rain comes

And when those clouds roll in
That shade me from the sun
Colors fade to blacks and grays
When the rain comes

  1. Well we are definitely in the rainy season where I live. Definitely makes things grow (and me have to get out the lawnmower, LOL!) but it is so much better than the dry, dreary business we have most of the year.

    I actually love rain. Like you I wouldn’t want it every day but it’s very peaceful. I love to sit outside under my carport, smoke a cigar and have a stiff drink during a good rain. It’s just so serene. I love it, and this song captures that essence for me.

    This is not about rain per say, but when I hear it I always think of the cleansing power of rain.
    AtoZ lyrics
    Give me a word,
    Give me a sign.
    Show me where to look,
    Tell me what will I find?
    What will I find?

    Lay me on the ground,
    Or fly me in the sky.
    Show me where to look,
    Tell me what will I find?
    What will I find?

    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down

    Love is in the water,
    Love is in the air.
    Show me where to look,
    Tell me will love be there?
    Will love be there?

    Teach me how to speak,
    Teach me how to share.
    Teach me where to go,
    Tell me will love be there?
    Love be there?

    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down

    Give me a word,
    Give me a sign.
    Show me where to look,
    Tell me what will I find?
    What will I find?

    Lay me on the ground,
    Or fly me in the sky.
    Show me where to look,
    Tell me what will I find?
    What will I find?

    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    (Yeah)
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down
    Whoa, heaven let your light shine down

    I’m gonna let it shine
    I’m gonna let it shine
    Heaven, let your light
    Shine on me

    Oh, yeah,
    Yeah
    Heaven, let your light
    Shine on me

    (Shine) Shine on me, yeah
    (Shine) C’mon and shine
