    Everyday rain will fall from the skies above us.
    Everyday this rain will represent our life.
    Everyday this rain will determine our day and what will become of you after you step off the bus.

    Every molecule in a raindrop holds the things we look past and take for granted.
    Every element produced through the forces of nature will advance throughout our future.
    Everyday rain will overflow your river,
    As will the burdens take domination of your life,
    Until you are fed and decide your life must fall as the trees "timber".

    Everyday rain will fall from the skies above us.
    We do not realize what path the things we are taught will take,
    Great influence will be made on the children we will make.
    Every raindrop wasted to the ground, the gutter, the streets is
    Every dream you failed to accomplish
    Every goal you decided to incomplete.

    Every leaf you witness fall to the ground is a human falling out of the circle of life.
    Every leaf we witness flying with the wind
    Is the way our mind takes over out life, watching us drown as we try to swim.

    Everyday rain will fall from the skies above us.
    Just as one day the skies will open revealing Jesus.

    Every turn you take will become either a road or a cliff.
    Depends on what you plan to do before you reach the end, if it is this.

    Every bridge man has built will collapse.
    You will fall into a minefield of distress and find yourself in undiscovered traps.

    Everyday rain will flood your oasis and your mind will mutate.

    Every time you see the sunshine bright is
    Every child’s future you chose to fight.

    Everyday will fall from the skies above us
    And everyday this rain will represent our life.
