Lyrics WELL, HELLO THERE
GOOD OLD FRIEND
OF MINE,
YOU'VE BEEN REACHING
FOR YOURSELF
FOR SUCH A LONG TIME.
THERE'S SO MUCH TO SAY,
NO NEED TO EXPLAIN,
JUST AN OPEN DOOR
FOR YOU
TO COME IN FROM THE RAIN.

IT'S A LONG ROAD
WHEN YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN,
AND A MAN LIKE YOU
WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE
THE LONG WAY HOME.
THERE'S NO RIGHT OR WRONG,
I'M NOT HERE TO BLAME.
I JUST WANT TO BE THE ONE
TO KEEP YOU FROM THE RAIN,
FROM THE RAIN.

AND IT LOOKS
LIKE SUNNY SKIES.
NOW THAT I KNOW
YOU'RE ALL RIGHT.
TIME HAS LEFT US
OLDER AND WISER,
I KNOW I AM.

INSTRUMENTAL -
AND IT'S GOOD TO KNOW
MY BEST FRIEND
HAS COME HOME AGAIN.
AND 'CAUSE I THINK OF US
LIKE AN OLD CLICHE,
BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER
'CAUSE I LOVE YOU ANYWAY
COME IN FROM THE RAIN.
COME IN FROM THE RAIN.
COME IN FROM THE RAIN.

Lyrics WHATEVER IT IS,
IT'LL KEEP TILL THE MORNING.
HAVEN'T WE BOTH
GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO?
MIDNIGHT BLUE.
EVEN THOUGH SIMPLE THINGS
BECOME ROUGH,
HAVEN'T WE HAD ENOUGH?

AND I THINK WE CAN MAKE IT
ONE MORE TIME IF WE TRY,
ONE MORE TIME
FOR ALL THE OLD TIMES.

FOR ALL OF THE TIMES
YOU TOLD ME YOU NEED ME,
NEEDING ME NOW
IS SOMETHING I CAN USE.
MIDNIGHT BLUE.
WOULDN'T YOU GIVE YOUR HAND
TO A FRIEND?
MAYBE IT'S NOT THE END.

AND I THINK WE CAN MAKE IT
ONE MORE TIME IF WE TRY,
ONE MORE TIME
FOR ALL THE OLD TIMES.

THINK WE CAN MAKE IT,
THINK WE CAN MAKE IT.
WOULDN'T YOU GIVE YOUR HEART
TO A FRIEND?
THINK OF ME AS YOUR FRIEND.

AND I THINK WE CAN MAKE IT.
AND I THINK WE CAN MAKE IT.
AND I THINK WE CAN MAKE IT.
