Lyrics

The rain fell hard upon the pavement
The rain fell harder than ever before
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the sun

The truth it flowed down the running stream
Between the craters left by broken dreams
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the truth

The trust it went down the mountainside
We were trapped out in the open, the was no place to hide
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the trust

The sun it disappeared behind the clouds
Oh, leaving in its place, sorrow’s lonesome shroud
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the joy

The light it faded into the night
We were stranded without love, stranded without light
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the light

The love it melted into the sky
Some people turned away, some hung their heads and cried
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the love

The lonesome mother standing in the street
With the tattered remains of her life around her feet
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find salvation

The desperate man without friend or foe
Who buries himself but has no place to go
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the hope

I watched as freedom was captured in chains
And only the strongest dreams could remain
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the freedom

The war it tore throughout the land
And peace, like a dove, it flew from my hands
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to find the peace

Time it ticked slowly by
And it seemed like destiny kept passing me by
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out before it’s too late

And the music it awoke the deaf ears
Gathering the seeds collected through the years
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to do what I know I must do

I watched as a blind man opened his eyes to see
And I watched as a thousand caged doves were freed
I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to be free

I don’t know when it’s coming back but
I’m gonna find out
I’m going out to be free
