  • Neil Dover - Jericho Rain (incomplete Lyrics)

    6 Jun 2010, 18:01

    I could have given you my heart and soul
    I guess that time's passed
    I wanted you to give my very best
    but I did not want it to be like this

    But I'm so glad you found me
    Take me away from here
    And I could be that desert
    That I feel when you're near

    My soul is drying, cracking
    My mind is going by
    My body's leaving something
    It should have never had

    There's nothing I can do
    There's nothing you can say
    So just come fall down on me
    Like that sweet Jericho Rain

    Jericho
    Rain
    I could become whole
    Yeah
    ?
    Rain
    Jericho
    Rain

    Tell me that you can save me
    And that I'll be okay
    Tell me that I'll survive this
    To fight another day

    I can't resist to take it
    Take what you want from me
    With my defenses naked
    I'll give you everything

    But I won't always be here
    Down on my hands and knees
    With my whole body screaming
    Please give me what I need

    Tonight I'm going back
    Tomorrow is another day
    So just come fall down on me
    I need that Jericho Rain


    I hope that I can erase the hurt
    I hope that I can erase the fear
    But now I know I can't do it alone
    I called your name but you never appeared

    I think I died if I ----- right
    You should have known that I might be you tonight (?)
    In the park, on my brain, put my pleasure pain (?)
    In the nightmare dream I can see your face (?)

    Only one good thing is that I escaped
    Without you seeing me in this disgrace
    But now you're here - I know it'll be okay
    Gonna laying me down my soul ---

    I got one shout left
    for my life begans (?)
    So just don't hold back (?)
    gimme


    Jericho
    Rain
    Jericho
    Rain
    I could become whole
    Yeah
    --
    Rain
    Jericho
    Rain

    I could have given you my heart and soul
    I did not want to be like you

    Rain
    Jericho
    Rain
    I could become whole
    Yeah
    --
    Rain

    Rain
    Rain
    Yeah
    Rain
    ....
