The new release ‘Love Rain’ from that album doesn’t disappoint with poignant lyrics:

Love Rain Down

I always loved the rain.

I wanted to be like the rain

falling down

down

down

down and I loved to fall

I found every reason I could

to fall

like an addiction

Love Rain Down

I was caught

caught in love affair

after love affair

after love affair

Love Rain Down

like an addiction

didn't need help

didn't want help

because down was fun

down was hot

down was easy

down was dirty

and I felt too clean

Love Rain Down

Down down I was too down

I forgot who I was

I forgot what I loved

I forgot

Jill Scott

I got caught

falling

cycles of victim

cycles of poor me

cycles of excuses

no excuses anymore

I still want to be

like Jill Scott

like sounds and words

music and poetry

together

music and poetry

together

like music and poetry (sung)

together (repeat) (sung)
