I Wish It Would Rain Down - Phil Collins

I Wish It Would Rain Down

...But Seriously
80s pop rock soft rock Phil Collins


I Wish It Would Rain Down is a song by Phil Collins, from his 1989 album ...But Seriously, and it included the guitar playing of Eric Clapton. It was also a departure from the dance-pop music style of No Jacket Required. The song was a top ten hit in many countries, including Canada where it topped the chart. Collins had Eric Clapton provide the guitar playing throughout the song. As Collins recalls, "I said 'Eric, have I never asked you to play? Come on, I've got a song right up your street.'" Collins felt that it was as close as he had ever gotten at the time to writing a blues song. Collins also felt that it was a Clapton song. The song was a significant chart hit in 1989, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and #1 on the RPM Top 100 in Canada. It also reached #7 on the UK Singles Chart. In Canada, it was the longest-running #1 single of 1990, spending six weeks atop the charts, and ranked as the top single of the year on RPM's year-end charts.

I Wish It Would Rain Down - Phil Collins

You know I never meant to see you again
But I only passed by as a friend
All this time I stayed out of sight
I started wondering why

Now I, Now I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now
Yes I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain on me

You said you didn't need me in your life
I guess you were right
I never meant to cause you no pain
But it looks like I did it again

Now I, Now I know, I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now
Yes girl I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain on me

Though your hurt is gone, mines hanging on, inside
And I know, it's eating me through every night and day
I'm just waiting on your sign

Cause I know, I know, I never meant to cause you no pain
And I realize I let you down
But I know in my heart of hearts
I know I'm never gonna hold you again

Now I, Now I know, I wish it would rain down, down on me
Ohh I wish it would rain, rain down on me now
Ohh I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain down, rain down over me

Just rain down over me
Just let it rain down...
