JTR (John the Revelator) Lyrics
I drink you up
For every drop of you is sacred
Every drop, I drink you up
You fill my cup
The way you laugh, eyes of a child
Lean on me, you fill me up
You make me love
So unconditionally generous
To me you give me love
And break my heart
Slip, you fall, I pick you up
And dust you off
You break my heart

[Chorus]
Rain, rain
Rain down on me
Again
And again
Rain down on me

Take all you want
For what is mine is yours
No better use is there for what I've got
Take all you want
And only hope can I you won't deny
Your love me for my love

No, don't cry, if it's too high
I'll lift you up, we'll make it, make it
When I was, oh, so tired
You come along to wake me, wake me
Time and time, again and again
With a smile you save me child

Rain, rain
Rain down on me
Again
And again
Rain down on me

Look we play our cards
And I question by the grace of what
We play our cards at all
Come fill me up
Oh, fill me love when I'm empty
When I'm all dried up

No, don't cry, if it's too high
I'll lift you up, we'll make it, make it
When I was, oh, so tired
You come along to wake me, wake me
Time and time, again and again
With a smile you save me child

Rain, rain
Rain down on me
Again
And again
Rain down on me

Rain
Rain
Rain down on me


[Original Version]

Come fill me up,
Oh when I'm dry and cold, when I'm emptied out.
With voice I shout
Oh when my words come, listen there upon.
I play my cards
But it's by the grace of God that I play my cards at all.
Come fill me up;
Oh, fill me when I'm empty, when I'm all dried out.

Now rain, rain, rain down on me;
Again, and again,
Rain down on me.

Oh I see it now;
When I saw you standing there like an angel you came down
To fill me up.
Oh fill me now, oh darkness and light fill me now

Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the book of seven seas
Oh rain, rain, rain down on me
again, and again
Oh, rain down on me

Oh I see it now
Oh tell them all, tell them all line up and drink the blood
I see it now
It's like the devil and the lord go dancin' arm in arm

Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the book of seven seas

Oh rain, rain, rain down on me
Again, and again
Oh, rain down on me

Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Who's that writing? John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seas
