DMX

Denver...
Chicago...

It's such a long, long train ride
It's such a long, lonely ride back home

(Now I know only I can stop the rain)
Now I know only I can stop the rain

It's not that we gotta do what we do
It's what we know, so to me it ain't nothin' but being true, but

Now I know only I can stop the rain

It doesn't have to be the way it is, you say it is
Just because for the past twenty years every day it is

Now I know only I can stop the rain

I want to be able to walk out my front door
Without worrying about coming in conflict with the law 'cause

Now I know only I can stop the rain

If I follow him, they'll follow me
And I'll speak life into the words that you can see 'cause

Now I know only I can stop the rain

We get away wit' every day shit
But every day shit catches up to you
When it does, you can't say shit

Now I know only I can stop the rain

If I don't, you will
What I won't, you still
What makes us feel like we gots to kill when

Now I know only I can stop the rain

How many more lives must we lose?
How many more times must we choose to trust these fools?

Now I know only I can stop the rain

If it ain't broke, don't fix it
I gave it to you straight, don't mix it
Twist it up for some slick shit

Now I know only I can stop the rain
I don't have to talk to it anymore
I don't have to walk to it anymore
I'm out the door

Now I know only I can stop the rain

I want to find peace with the Lord
I don't want to find a piece of the sword
I can't afford to

Now I know only I can stop the rain

When every day of my life is a constant fight between wrong and right

Now I know only I can stop the rain

I thank you, Lord, for my life
I thank you, Lord, for keeping the deuce when things got tight

Now I know only I can stop the rain

Only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the pain
(Yeah)

Now I know only I can stop the rain

Only I can stop the rain, stop the rain
(Yeah, what)

Now I know only I can stop the rain

Only I can stop the rain
Only I can stop the rain 'cause the rain falls on me

Now I know only I can stop the rain

Only I can stop the rain
I'm out
