about

Sticks, Stones and a Bone was a band some of the guys from the UCR music department put together. They decided they needed a singer from time to time, and invited me to join them. I was still pretty green all those years ago, and my friend Eugene (ecologist, vegetarian and upright bass player) took me under his wing and taught me this song, amongst many others to help build my song list for the band. I performed this with SSB and have loved it ever since.

lyrics

We both are lost
And alone in the world
Walk with me
In the gentle rain
Don't be afraid, I've a hand
For your hand and I
Will be your love for a while

I feel your tears as they fall
On my cheek
They are warm like gentle rain
Come little one you have me in the
World and our love will be sweet
Very sweet

Our love will
Be sweet very sad
Very sweet like gentle rain
Like the gentle rain
Like the gentle rain
