    Falling Of The Rain

    Once upon a time in the land of misty satin dreams there stood a house
    And a man who painted nature scenes
    He painted trees
    And fields and animals and streams
    And he stayed and he didn't hear the falling of the rain
    No, he didn't hear the falling of the rain

    In the forest green lived a girl who put her hair in braids and she sang
    As she walked all about the wooded glades
    She was glad when the rain came falling on her face
    And she sang, 'cause she didn't mind the falling of the rain
    No, she didn't mind the falling of the rain
    Will it always be the same as we recall?

    Does it touch you when the rain begins to fall?
    Ah, but I don't want to know and I don't want to see
    Another rainy day without you lying next to me, ah
    High upon a hill far away from the dusty crowd is a boy
    With his eyes on the ground, his head is bowed
    He's a fool and his mind is filled with hopeless dreams
    And he waits, but he will not see the falling of the rain
    No, he will not see the falling of the rain
    Will it always be the same as we recall?
    Does it touch you when the rain begins to fall?
    Ah, but I don't want to know and I don't want to see
    Another rainy day without you lying next to me, ah

    So now the boy becomes the man who sits and paints all day
    But the girl with the braids in her hair has gone away
    And it seems that time has brought things to an end
    Nothing's changed, 'cause you can't stop the falling of the rain
    Can't stop the falling of the rain
