Box of Rain

Box of Rain

West Virginia

Box of Rain
Grateful Dead - Words by Robert Hunter; music by Phil Lesh

Look out of any window
Any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
Birds are winging or
Rain is falling from a heavy sky -
What do you want me to do,
To do for you to see you through
This is all a dream we dreamed
One afternoon long ago

Walk out of any doorway
Feel your way, feel your way
Like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
Around some corner
Where it's been waiting to meet you
What do you want me to do
To watch for you while you're sleeping
Well please don't be surprised
When you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
You'll find value you can see
Clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
Through other eyes on other days
While going home
What do you want me to do
To do for you to see you through
It's all a dream we dreamed
One afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams
To another land
Maybe you're tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted
With words half spoken
And thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
To do for you to see you through
A box of rain will ease the pain
And love will see you through

Just a box of rain
Wind and water
Believe it if you need it
If you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower
Wind and rain
In and out the window
Like a moth before a flame

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
Or leave it if you dare
And it's just a box of rain
Or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone
And a short time to be there
