Rain in the Key of D
(words and music by Michael P. Smith, 1995)

Who gave my Sunday morning
An early storm cloud warning
Who stole the hours from all my clocks
And set them free?
Who made my nights so long
The sands of time had gone to
rob her waves before the sun dropped even to the see
It was you, darling
All these things you gave to me
And rain in the key of D

Who wrote my childhood’s ending
In letters not for sending
Who made my sundial from a bone-white desert tree
Who drenched my sunlit towers in sudden thundershowers
Falling down on white horse road
Far as I could see
It was you, darling,
All there things you were to me
And rain in the key of D
Rain in the key of D

(bridge)
Rain and me, we’ve been fallin’ forever for you
But if we see you never
What will we do?
The Westen wind and I
We get caught in the sky

Who taught me to remember
The bleak and wild December
When winter’s child so cold
Enthralled the heart of me
Though grey the waves and stormy
Whose astrolabe looked for me
On whose far horizon by what charts
where dragons be?
It was you darling
All these things you left to me
And rain in the key of D
Rain in the key D
