Take the rain from my heart, take the tears from my eyes, take the dream from my soul, For I am feeling alone. Let the wind touch my face, let the days slowly go, let the good times slowly die, For I am feeling so scared. Make the sun shine again, make the love dawn within, make the spirit start to dance, For I am feeling empty. See the smile on my face, see the laughter in my eyes, see the joy within my heart, For I am here to win.
