Rain King

This song is by Counting Crows and appears on the live album Across a Wire: Live in New York City (1998).

When I think of heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird,
I think of flying, down into a sea of pens and feathers,
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God,
In the belly of a black-winged bird, don't try to feed me,
'Cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been crying, I been thinking,
And I am the Rain King.

Well I said, mama, mama why am I so alone?
I can't go outside, 'cause I'm scared,
That I might not make it home,
I'm alive, but I'm sinking in,
If there's anyone at home at your place darlin'
Please invite me in, don't try to bleed me,
'Cause I've been there before and I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been lying, I just keep sinking,
And I am the Rain King.

I only want the same as anyone,
Mr Henderson just keeps waiting for the sun,
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends,
And ends and begins and ends,
After all the dreaming,
I just wanna come back home again.

I said well every little big fish,
That sails your gonna sink down,
A well underground and all the little things,
That she does to me feels so good,
And I said every little bit of fun and loneliness,
And every little thing that endlessly confuses me,
And I still know she will,
I said but when I think of heaven,
Mmm said when I think of heaven,
Mmmm when I think of heaven,
I think of you, do you think of me too,
Mmm said when I think of heaven,
Deliver me in a black winged bird,
Just go oh, come on.

I think of dying, well come on,
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather,
Surrender up my body into the burning heart of,
God in the belly of a black-winged bird,
Don't try to bleed me,
'Cause I've been there before,
And I deserve a little more.

I belong in the service of the Queen,
I belong anywhere but in between,
She's been dying and I've been drinking
And I am the Rain King,
I said that I am the rain king,
Oh I said, goodnight Elisabeth,
I'm so sorry now, but I am the rain king,
So why don't you come in out of the rain?
