Lyrical Transcription: Official lyrics, taken from jumplittlechildren.com in the fall of 2002

She likes the photograph
The one of you and Simone
Out in the rain on a Sunday morning
She likes to take it out
Only when she’s feeling down
And then she says can you hear it raining

She wants to know does everyone feel this way
When it rains in the summertime
She wants to know does everyone feel this way
When you’re sure that he’s gone forever

When it rains in Asia
It makes her feel this way
California
London, Bombay
When it rains in Asia

She likes to take the train
Down to Washington square
And hear the buskers sing ‘oh Susannah’
She likes to let it come
Right to the tip of her tongue
And then she feels like an angel talking
She wants to know does everyone feel this way
Outside the walls of America
She wants to know does everyone feel this way
When you’re sure that he’s gone forever


When it rains in Asia
It makes her feel this way
California
London, Bombay
When it rains in Asia

She wants to know
Is it always, always raining somewhere

When it rains in Asia
It makes her feel this way
California
London, Bombay
When it rains in Asia
