To a lonesome dark-eyed beauty
On a far-off avenue
I woke from a dream late last night
And wanted to tell you
When you're feelin' lonely
When the walls around you break
When you need someone to help you
Heal the ache within your ache

Oh, let me feel your thunder
Oh, let your raindrops fall...
It's not a cloud, this feeling that I'm under
Maybe we'll see rainbows after all

Will you come to me in rhythm
Will you come to me in rhyme
Will you take me on a journey
Through the netherworlds of time

Will you let me climb your mountain
Can I swim beneath your sea?
Will you let me enter deep within
Your own infinity?

Will you bring me to your altar,
When the evening sun goes down,
Where the poets weep and angels wait,
Underneath your wedding gown...

Oh, let me feel your thunder
Oh, let your raindrops fall...
It's not a cloud, this feeling that I'm under
Maybe we'll see rainbows after all

Will you touch me with your midnight,
Will you speak to me in tongues,
Will you take me to your garden,
When the time for moonlight comes?

Will you offer me resistance,
Will you laugh and turn me in,
When the echoes of my fingers,
Cross the borders of your skin?

Will you hold me in the ether,
When I kiss your sacredness,
Will you still believe me when I untie
All the ribbons on your dress?

Oh, let me feel your thunder
Oh, let your raindrops fall...
It's not a cloud, this feeling that I'm under
Maybe we'll see rainbows after all...

You don't have to be specific,
You don't have to be immense
You don't have to mount
Or circumvent an nfl defense

Will you stop and turn your back on
The offerings I give
Will you smile and turn and show me
Secret places where you live

Will you lead me on a voyage,
Will you take me on a trip,
Through the back roads and the highlands
'Round the landscape of your lips?

Will the palace doors be open,
Will you offer me the key?
Will you leave it just outside
The moonlit garden gate for me?

Oh, let me feel your thunder
Oh, let your raindrops fall...
It's not a cloud, this feeling that I'm under
Maybe we'll see rainbows after all...
