She cried to the Southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Heading for a showdown

Bad dreamer, what's your name?
Looks like we're riding on the same train
Looks as though there'll be more pain
There's gonna be a showdown.

And it's raining, all over the world
it's raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on the Southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There's gonna be a showdown

Save me, oh save me
It's unreal, the suffering
There's gonna be a showdown

And it's raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

Raining, raining
raining, raining

Raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
The longest night

And it's raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

You gotta save me, girl
Well, I'm ready for saving
I'm a fool for you
Ya know I'm ready, yeah
come on and save me

Can't you feel what you're doing to me, now?
I'm on the run again
Gotta save me
