Smiling In The Rain
written by John Hiatt

The fallen angel shivers underneath the August moon
The lady of the house goes up in ashes
He crawled out through the future but the past came back too soon
And the present just occurs in sudden flashes

But in your eyes I see the pain
Help me ride this crazy train
I am lost and you are smilin' in the rain

Everybody's looking for a place to live their dreams
Main Street paints a face on lonely lovers
Strangers meet with blindfolds on and hope they're what they seem
And everybody wants to have each other


Well the giving, is the sacred thing
It's just the livin' that don't seem right
But for all the light that shines on me
Your light sets me free
Oh please stay with me tonight

The battle zone is quiet, all the appetites are gone
The soldier and his woman let the wounds heal
Knowing that tomorrow all the raging will go on
If only to remember how their love feels
