Μια ακόμα σπουδαία πρόταση του stcigar, η “υπεράνω περιγραφής” performance του Tom Waits στο σόου του David Letterman, εποχής Real Gone [2004] απ’ όπου το τραγούδι.
Another excellent proposal from
stcigar is this “beyond description” performance by Tom Waits in David Letterman’s show, Real Gone era [2004] from which the song is taken.

She took all my money
And my best friend
You know the story
Here it comes again
I have no pride
I have no shame
You gotta make it rain
Make it rain
Since you’re gone
Deep inside it hurts
I’m just another sad guest
On this dark Earth
I wanna believe
In the mercy of the World again
Make it rain
Make it rain
Night’s too quiet
Stretched out alone
I need the whip of thunder
And the winds dark moan
I’m not Abel
I’m just Cain
Open up the Heavens
Make it rain
I’m close to Heaven
Crushed at the gate
They sharpen their knives
On my mistakes
What she done
You can’t give it a name
You gotta just make it rain
Make it rain
Yeah -eh
Without her love
Without your kiss
Hell can’t burn me
More than this
I’m burning with all this pain
Put out the fire
And make it rain
I’m born to trouble
Born to fate
Inside a promise
I can’t escape
It’s the same old World
But nothin’ looks the same
Make it rain
Make it rain
Gotta make it rain
Make it rain
You’ve got to
Make it rain
You got to
Make it rain
You got to
I stand alone here
I stand alone here
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain

    This is great! I’m a newbie to listening to Tom Waits. This is the 3rd song I’ve heard by him.
    Thank you for this! I’m liking what I’m hearing….and feeling!
