A Handful of Rain and a Pocketful of Memories



Yearning A Handful of Rain and a Pocketful of Memories


I hear the rain; it's coming down; I run to catch it in my hand.

I know they all have turned to rain, my dreams and all of my plans.
My hands thrust in my trouser pockets, I walk the dark and drizzly streets.
A pocketful of memories returns to keep me company.

Chorus:
I've got a handful of rain and a pocketful of memories
That I can share with you, that's all,
That I can share with you.

From my magic pocket come thoughts of days and nights with you,
Days when a happy, smiling sun played in a bright sky of blue,
And nights when a million stars danced for only us two.
Now all I have is a handful of rain and memories to share with you.

Repeat Chorus

I know the streets are wet with rain; our eyes are wet with tears.
And it seems that if the sun shines again it won't be for many a year.
I can't give you what I don't have; can't give you the sun or the sea.
All I have is a handful of rain and a pocketful of memories.

Chorus:
I've got a handful of rain and a pocketful of memories
That I can share with you, that's all,
That I can share with you. (2X)
