Steady As the Rain ©2009 Larry Suess
Always was the first to face a challenge, never balked at risking it all
No one knew a better protector, no one knew a more loyal friend
He towered over all his companions; he was a man among men.
He stood steady as the rain, he never showed the pain
Couldn’t stand the pain of the leaving, he went off to be all alone again.
He was a man with his pride; he never showed what was inside
But she wanted more than he could show her; she longed for what was inside just as much.
She cried and stormed in vain. He stood steady as the rain
BRIDGE: Alone again, heartbroken, you’d never know he lost his pride
Looking like a man’s man again, boys, even as he fell apart inside.
He walked out into the rain. He let his tears flow with the pain
Might have been the long night at the grave site
Letting out the pain that drove him mad
He came back a changed man on the inside; you could even see it in his walk
He found her on a quiet summer’s evening; all he wanted from her was to talk.
He showed her how he’d changed. She found the man inside the man
Showing through as steady as the rain.
