Iron Maiden - Rainmaker Lyrics




When I was wandering in the desert
And was searching for the truth
I heard a choir of angels calling out my name
I had the feeling that my life would never be the same again
I turned my face towards the barren sun

And I know of the pain that you feel the same as me
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
And the cracks in our lives like the cracks upon the ground
They are sealed and are now washed away

[Chorus:]
You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away
You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears.....

And I know of the pain that you feel the same as me
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
And the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives
They are sealed and now far away

[Repeat chorus, 3rd verse]

Iron Maiden Rainmaker Comments
  1. YoungTuna

    Remembering 2007, my first year at high school ( an art school), my long hair, metal band t shirt, my school mate, headphones and draws.. little metalhead nerd grows up

  2. Danse Macabre

    If this song would have gotten any radio play whatsoever, it would be a hit, I mean some of overly compressed trash that is played on a regular cycle on the radio and Maiden, with absolute gems like this , are completely ignored. One of my favorites of the second Bruce era.

  3. Franz Meier

    These lyrics are ass, but the instrumentals are actually good, especially that intro.

  4. Randy Marsh

    This is such a powerful song. I dream to hear it live before Maiden retires.

  5. Leonora Johnson

    🇧🇷👩🏻‍🎤 muito bom , depois deste disco só decepção 🤷🏻‍♀️! Mas iron maiden sempre será iron maiden 👩🏻‍🎤😊👍

  6. Gamer Ben

    The song ' these colours don't run ' is really underrated and probably the worst iron Maiden song of all time as well as the song called ' virus ' which is also underrated

  7. Duck

    This song is criminal underrated

  8. Bruno Alves

    BR 🇧🇷

  9. david conor

    Great song to help things flow in the bathroom area. Up the Irons.

  10. Vinícius Rodrigues

    Muito melhor que wildest dreams, essa música é foda demais

  11. Neto Cavalcante

    This song is so fck awesome

  12. Lee CypheRR

    the guitar solo always makes me cry

  13. Claudio Jr

    Although Murray, Harris and Dickinson have never admitted it, this song was largely inspired by the life and writings of the Brazilian author Paulo Coelho. The lyrics tell the story of someone "walking in the desert and searching for the truth", just like Paulo Coelho did crossing The Camino of Santiago (Way of Saint James) in the 1980s, an experience reporter in his book "The Pilgrimage" (O Diário de Um Mago). Later on, the lyrics introduce voices of angles revealing the truth to the pilgrim, just like Paulo Coelho's experience of illumination. It is also noteworthy that Coelho has told that he is able to start the rain and that his life was never the same after that experience of the Camino. Since this song was released in 2003 and all this information about Paulo Coelho were largely reported in the 1980s and 1990s, I really do not think those are mere coincidences...

  14. Magicaparanoia

    The album cover is shit but gotta give credit to them for trying something like digital art when it was in its infancy

    Ryan Thompson Guitarist

    The artist actually finished it, but Maiden chose to go with an unfinished version

  15. LtClarke2215

    2019: still a massive track to fall back.

  16. Edren Veira Silva Souza

    Muitos Dizem Que Este Trabalho Álbum Não ficou legal! Ou até Meio Não Deu Certo? Que Isso As músicas ficou brutal em melodias Extremas Em Feelings Vividos. Que Isso É A Donzela De Ferro e Pronto.

  17. UMA OTAKU BEM K-POPPER

    Parece uma festa de carnaval a imagem desse álbum😂

  18. Matrix Wavelength

    Dance Of Death is an excellent album according to me, following a difficult period and low quality albums. As we're used to have one or two excellent songs in the usual modern Maiden album, this one has much more, including this one, Dance Of Death, No More Lies and Paschendale. Let's hope the new incoming album will be that great !

    Irish Countryman

    One of my teachers asked me if I ever listened to Dance of Death. He said such a fucking great album.

  27. Matthew Rasbury

    Pablo honey really wasn't a bad album. I stand by that. If I need to break it down I will. Not very articulate but from a guitarist point of view but anyway I love iron maiden just gives me chills man. Yes unrelated but i didn't want to break my train of thought.

    Leon K

    "Pablo Honey" is my favourite Iron Maiden album.

  28. Fang Face

    Worst cover art ever!

  54. iore oliveira

  55. Ioch114

    This is my three-year-old daughter's favorite Iron Maiden song. When I'm shaving my beard in the bathroom I'm usually listening to an Iron Maiden playlist. Every time I'm there my daughter wants to come inside to listen to music and watch me shave. This song always makes her dance and she is trying to sing along.

    Slamazzar

    Just wonder what kind of DANCE is hers ;)

  78. Gabriel Menetrie

  80. Ed Explores Scotland

    I find it hard to find a more exciting song. This does it for me.

  81. Ed Explores Scotland

    Iron Maiden at their peak.

    Flat Earth Socialist

    Edward Burns I like ALL the Iron Maiden albums, seen them live five times, and been a fan since 1985. But c'mon mate..this is not their "peak". The 'Somewhere In Time' era was their peak.

  82. Carrawr Paiz

    I couldn't find the name of this song for 7 years from when I had it on my mom's scratched CD. I've missed this melody.

  83. José Jorge

    This album was a really good one, only a couple of songs are out of place, but there are great songs like this one, No More Lies, Dance of Death, Paschendale, that should be played in any live show.

  84. Ed Explores Scotland

    Crikey! Does it get better? I think not.

  85. LETHALPANDAx69

    Apparently i haven't listened to this song in 5 years 😂

  86. Vasilios Petris

    Awsome lyrics

  87. Kevin G

    I love Maiden, but fuck West Ham football team. Chelsea is our England team, because their fans are the most white racialist. "Up the irons" is a football term for fans of West Ham.

  92. jimthar17

    How can you not love this song? This is pure joy.

  93. Chris F
