Classic Rock Lyrics

The Rain Song Lyrics - Led Zeppelin



This is the springtime of my loving-
the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
so little warmth I felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.
It is the summer of my smiles-
flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
it is to you I give this tune.
It isn't hard to recognise-
these things are clear to all from
time to time.

Talk Talk-
I felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us
but I know that I love you so
but I know that I love you so.

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all a little rain
must fall.


Written after George Harrison, who is a huge fan, told John Bonham that the trouble with Led Zeppelin is that they don't do any ballads.
Robert Plant's lyrics deal with the changing emotions of love.
John Paul Jones played the Mellotron, providing an orchestral effect.
One of the few Zeppelin songs where all 4 members shared the composer credit.
