Rain Don’t Come Lyrics

Wandering been here for days
How long since we have found our way
Sun above beats down and leathers our skin to hell and browns the face

Suddenly I hear the call
To rise above it all
We’ll wait it out
And after all it’s not the first time
We’ve been in a drought so

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

Wandering been here for days
How long since we have found our way
Sun above beats down and leathers our skin to hell and browns the face

Suddenly I hear the call
To rise above it all
We’ll wait it out
And after all it’s not the first time
We’ve been in a drought so

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
We keep dancing but the rain don’t come
Rain Don’t Come
So we keep dancing

Thanks for the feedback. Here are some more I’ve taken.

The graffiti on the way into Glasgow;

The Griffin mural;

The architecture;

The Glasgow Tolbooth Steeple;

The Mercat Building;

Decaying buildings;

City Centre lanes;

And finally, a woman that saw me with my camera and said “do you want to take my picture?!” while she struck this pose. How could I possibly refuse….

The Tolbooth Steeple now stands alone but this fine tower was once part of the old city chambers until 1814, the remains of the old Tolbooth buildings  were demolished in 1921 and it has stood proud at Glasgow Cross since then. The Mercat Cross which stands nearby represents one removed from the areas in 1659, was paid for by Dr William Black and his wife inaugurated on 24 April 1930. I find it quite fitting to discover on International Women’s Day that it was designed by Britain’s first practising woman architect who established her own architecture firm in 1920.
