Song Meaning
Verse 1
I turn and walk away then I come 'round again
It looks as though tomorrow I'll do pretty much the same.
Verse 2
I must turn down your offer but I'd like to ask a break
You know I'm ready to give everything for anything I take.
Verse 3
Someone called my name you know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the Mission and the bells were not for me.
Verse 4
Come again, walking along in the Mission in the rain,
Come again, walking along in the Mission in the rain,
Verse 5
Ten years ago, I walked this street my dreams were riding tall
Tonight I would be thankful Lord, for any dream at all.
Verse 6
Some folks would be happy just to have one dream come true
But everything you gather is just more that you can lose.
Verse 7
Come again, walking along in the Mission in the rain,
Come again, walking along in the Mission in the rain,
Verse 8
All the things I planned to do I only did half way
Tomorrow will be Sunday born of rainy Saturday.
Verse 9
There's some satisfaction in the San Francisco rain
No matter what comes down the Mission always looks the same.
Verse 10
Come again, walking along in the Mission in the rain.
