I wanna walk with you, love -

With the world falling down around us
And the sky pouring down on our heads;

With the pathways slick and treacherous
And the winds of change howling around us;

Know that they'll say we'll never make it,
But inside - inside, I'm hoping we will.

I have faith in us, in us together -
I know we'll change our rainy days -

Together... we can turn 'em into something - else;
No longer will they be dreary, but magical instead.

We'll make the raindrops gifts - to quench our thirst;
The wind - it'll be a present - given to lift our wings.

The skies, once dark and bleak, are merely - Nay, better -
They become a test of endurance, strengthening our spirits.

We will know the beauty of the weathered,
Feel the joy in the wrinkles carved by time.

Standing strong, bending often: this... yes, this
Is what the storms that others see as a burden

Shall provide us, these two souls
Just-a Walkin' in the Rain.
