"Bittersweet Rain"

Droplets falling from the sky
Make me stop and wonder why
Couldn’t help it if I tried
Sometimes I just want to cry

Darkened clouds they cover me
Even so they help me see
Made me what I’ve come to be
Water helps the growing tree

April rain, April pain, April fools – they play
April rain, April pain, April fools – they pay

Bittersweet rain giving pain
Bringing change to me
You set me free, you help me see
Bittersweet rain

Lightning flashes, lights my way
Frightens me as it may
Then I start to feel okay
This is not where I should stay

Rain, rain come my way
Give me hope for one more day
With your pain bring in change
O thou bittersweet rain
