SONG LYRICS

RAINMAKER

I know you’re up there
Watching over me
I know you hear and see
Just what I hear and see
I know you know I’m broken
I know you feel my pain
All that I’m asking for
Is just a little bit of rain

Oh let it fall down
And wash away my sin
Oh let it fall down
And drown me in this mess I’m in
Oh let it fall down
And take it with me down the drain
Rainmaker
Just make it rain

Rainmaker won’t you please
Make it rain, rain, rain
Rainmaker won’t you please
Just make it rain

I can’t hide
The blood here on my hands
I had my reasons,
But you wouldn’t understand
And no amount of water, will wash away these stains
But even still I pray
Could you send a little rain?

Rainmaker won’t you please
Make it rain, rain, rain
Rainmaker won’t you please
Just make it rain

It won’t take away the pain
No, no, no
It won’t wash away the stains
No, no, no
It won’t bring them home again
No, no, no
But it just might hide my tears
Ya it just might hide my tears
It just might hide my tears
Ya it just might hide my tears

(repeat bridge)

Rainmaker won’t you please
Make it rain, rain, rain
Rainmaker won’t you please
Just make it rain

DESCRIPTION
This song is a collaborative effort between our band (Upside of Maybe) and the indigenous group "Okama". It features some beautiful indigenous percussion, wood flute, throat singing and chanting. Thematically, it is a song about forgiveness and reconciliation and the idea for it came from attending a conference on the residential schools in Canada.
