When I was a child I used to love to watch the rain
I′d stand under the downspout,let the water cool my brain
I never thought to worry if the river rose too high
That all the seeds we planted would get washed out with the tide
But now I am a man
And I need a place to hide

But there's nowhere to run
And there′s no place to hide
Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

When I was a young man I could work through wind and rain
I never thought to worry,had no reason to complain
I thought that I was standing on a rock so firm and strong
But it was easy then to see,just what was right and what was wrong
But now I am a man
I won't be hanging round too long

When I was a child I used to love to watch the rain
I'd stand under the downspout,let the water cool my brain
I never thought to worry if the river rose too high
And all the dreams we planted would get washed out with the tide

But there′s nowhere to run
And there′s no place to hide
Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide
