Track Name: Cleveland Rain (Album Version)
CLEVELAND RAIN c.2013 Alan Bonner

Sat on a wall, In a foreign land
Heart in Hand, Heart in hand
Drunk as hell,
The Cleveland Rain falls down on me
Does it wash me clean?
who can tell? Who can tell?

So should I
So should I laugh or cry?
Tell me what chance do we stand
When we sail on separate tides of an ocean that divides
And every good thing dies

And theres a choir on the corner, on the corner
Singing LOVE!
LOVE!
LOVE!
LOVE!
Spread it like its going out of style
Like when you were a child
And you hadn't learnt to fear
and you handn't learned to blame
And you had never heard of guilt
And you had never heard of shame

You just loved
You just loved
LOVED
So just love
Just love
Just love

And I love you, I think I love you, you know,I love you
Fuck it, its true
And though I cannot stand beside you
I am honoured to have known you
And for a moment you were honoured by me too.

So should I
So should I laugh or cry
But tell me what chance do we stand
with a line drawn in the sand?
But if you decide to cross it
I'll be waiting here with open arms for you.
Open arms for you
