Comments

The song is based on list of unused book titles by Raymond Chandler and was initially written and recorded for a project organized by writer Gina Arnold. The original title was 'The Man Who Loved the Rain' but Robyn subsequently changed it is 'Loves'. Robyn's original recording can be heard on Soundcloud here

Lyrics

Respect the dead
You will be joining them soon
Honour your mother and father
And all of the folks
On the moon

In watery handwriting scattered in drops
On my window pane
He wrote: “I am the weathervane
I’m the man who loves the rain”

Don’t last too long
The world changes under your feet
Life is eternal life is so brief and
Life is so sweet
Sweeter than even a fox in a hole
Or a thought in a brain.

He wrote: “I am the weathervane
Swaying with every feeling that hits me again and again
I’m the man who loves the rain
The man who loves the rain”

You have two graves
Your name’s on both of them
I like to keep people guessing as well when I’m close to them
I have two clouds
Both of them hard to contain
One of them showers the flowers
The other one bursts into flames

I am the weathervane
Love me or leave me
You have to believe me
I’ll jump your train

I’m the man who loves the rain
The man who loves the rain

Don’t try to go
Don’t try to remain
I’m the man who loves the rain
