10. Rain Down

Now Is Not Forever
by B.Reith



 

Lord rain down, I can't go on without You
I need you to rain down 'cause I'm so lost without You

From the bottom to the top back down to the bottom
These are the places I've been, my problems
Ain't nothin like the next man but I still got 'em
I want to leave my lot like Lot did to Sodom
But I just can't let go, though ever since the get go
You said so, this is detrimental, so I grab a hold of You
Let everything around me just follow suit
But please help me get these thoughts in line
'Cause I will go crazy without peace of mind
And put me back together one peace at a time
'Cause I'm just a branch and I need the vine
Just lookin' for direction I don't need a sign
You told me if I'd seek I'd find so here I am
On the verge of breakdown but so close to break-through
Fully aware that all it takes is You to just

Rain down, I can't go on without You, I need you to
Rain down, 'cause I'm so lost without You, won't you please just

Rain down on me, as you can see my gas tanks on E
Tires as flat as can be, while my life is passin' me by
Like Pharcyde this is a catastrophe
Plus my soul oh so empty
Dried up, dehydrated, beat up, annihilated
Eyes all dilated still I can't even see
The one thing I need most is right in front of me
Now I'm cravin' a taste of that Living Water
Starvin' for somethin' that this world ain't got to offer
I ought to know by now that face down at your altar
Is the place that I need to start 'cause this bleeding heart
Can only be healed by the One that made it
The One that gave His all to save it, your touch I crave it
So seek through the cracks in my pavement 'cause

(Brian Reith)

Behind the Song:
"A few years ago I was at the bottom of the bottom: financially, emotionally and spiritually. I was sitting in my room crying out to the Lord, trying to write. I had nothing left to give. That's when these words came out: "Lord rain down, I can't go on without you." I had a chord progression I was working on with a melody, and the words fit perfectly. I didn't really like the song much at first, but I played it for Tommy Sims and he loved it. That's when I realized I should probably record it. Rain Down while being serious in content is a lot of fun because of the great groove due to the musicians that played on it." - B.Reith
