From the recording Long Stretch of Road

Lyrics

We  were  racing  in  the  rain - crashing like thunder –
In  the  eye  of  the  storm
We  were  young you and  I –  chasing  summer
Two  hearts  beating  as  one
 
I  didn't  know – I  couldn't  tell
Your golden  heart  was  my  wishing  well
Joy  we  shared  was  my  saving  grace
Sharing  the  thrill  of  the  chase 
 
Lead me on and I'll lead you – thru  this  grand  tale of me and you
Two lives  meet  to  make a flame
The Art of Racing in the rain – the art of racing in the rain
 
Then you taught me to laugh -  you  showed  me  that  sorrow
A  passing  cloud  in  the  sky
Breathe each  breath like  your  last - each moment you swallow
Taste  like  golden sunshine
 
I  always  heard  the  whisper  of  your heart 
Warm  beating  motion   had  me  from  the  start 
Your  bright  gaze  from  knowing  eyes 
Truth  you  inhaled  -  love  that  you  sighed 
 
Lead  me on and I'll lead you – thru  this  grand  tale  of  me  and  you
Two  lives meet  to  make a flame
The Art of Racing in the rain – the art of racing in the ran
 
Each  day  grows  shorter  as  we  near  the  end 
I’ll  never  forget  you,  my  best  friend 
 
Lead  me on  and  I'll  lead  you – thru  this  grand  tale  of  me  and  you
Two  lives  meet  to  make  a  flame –
The  Art  of Racing  in  the  rain – the  art  of racing  in  the  rain
