It rains, that's all it can do
I wished I could do it too
Cause if I could rain, I'd rain all day all over you
Would you rain with me
We'd rain a big blue sea
Then we'd swim, in the waves of that sea
Rained together by you and me
We'd swim and rain, rain and swim
rim and swain, swain and rim
But never drown or drain

Cumulonimbus me

Silver pearls dripping on the shark home's window
Drawing wrinkles in the shade of a weeping water willow
Where the wind will never blow

Cumulonimbus me
P r e c i p i t a t i o n a l l y

If you ever see a cloud
Stuck in a tree, crying out loud, well, it could be me
In endeavor to drizzle down
Dreamers become fog in a nimbus gown

Just stay with me
And hug that tree
