The Secret Life Of J. Eddy Fink

Look To The Rain

Janis Ian

I have nothing to bring you that you'd ever return
I have nothing to sing you that you've never before heard
I've got nothing to teach you that you'll never learn
Yes, that's how it works
If you're wanting an answer – a final solution
I haven't the words

Look to the wind and the rain
Look there for your answer, babe

Me and my friends, we know we must make amends
and so do you babe
Me and my friends, we know it's just around the bend
and you do too babe
Me and my friends are lucky
We don't have to be scared of things in the air
Of answers to questions - solutions about which
we've never really cared

Look to the wind and the rain
Look there for your answer, babe

I'm not up here to tell you what's right and what's wrong
I can't tell you anything but how my world's coming along
Can't do anything for you but sing you a song
If you want something more
you'll have to find someone - a prophet or something
Someone who'll never be wrong

Look to the wind and the rain
Look there for your answer, babe

I have nothing to bring you that you'd ever return
I have nothing to sing you that you've never before heard
I've got nothing to teach you that you'll never learn
Yes, for better or worse
If you're wanting an answer – a final solution
these are the words

Look to the wind and the rain
Look there for your answer, babe
