Here is a song and video from my friend Pat Flanakin. We met on Broadjam – a great place for musicians to share their music, get licensed, learn more, and a just have fun. Pat is a country musician from Nashville, TN. He reminds me of James Taylor. And his lyrics are amazing. Pat Flanakin

I still remember the first time I heard this song. It struck something deep in my soul. The tears started falling. And I didn’t even know why.  Sometimes there are songs that unearth hidden pain so that it can be healed. Hurts that have been locked away for years. Buried. And then God uses a song to heal that place. RAIN ON ME is one of those songs for me.

I confess, there are places in my heart that are barren and that need the water of the Lord to bring them back to life.  I am ready – to dance in the showers, for hours and hours.  Great song, and great video Pat!

Lyrics

RAIN ON ME ©Pat Flanakin
patflanakin@hotmail.com

VERSE A desert wind can turn a stone to sand
And strip your soul of ev’ry dream you’ve ever had
And leave you with nothin’ but this barren land
Rain on me

VERSE A thousand mountains stand before my eyes
They hide the ocean on the other side
But I can smell the water and I can taste the tide
Rain on me
And let me taste the water
Water is what I need

CHORUS Come on you’ve got to rain on me
And let me taste the water
Water is what I need

VERSE California I don’t understand
You keep your treasures in your fisted hand
And you can make a beggar out of an honest man
Rain on me
Let me taste the water
Water is what I need

CHORUS Rain on me
And let me dance in the showers
For hours and hours

BRIDGE Oh I’m dying for just a drink
So let it rain down on me.

CHORUS You’ve got to rain on me
And let me dance in the showers
For hours and hours

CHORUS Come on you’ve got to rain on me
Let me taste the water
Cause water is what I need
