lyrics

Heavy Rain

Outside the weather’s schizophrenic just like her mind
She points her dirty little finger at me
Inside my white walls are scenic with photographs from my life
And everything that used to be
She pulls my heartstrings just to see what chord she will strike
Around the drain and now I’m in too deep
She wants me to run for the door, just to stand by her side
The trap’s been laid but it tasted so sweet

It’s too late now, the sun’s gone down
The rains have come and we’re about to drown
It washes off her Cheshire grin
And I’m flailing my arms just to tread this water again

Is it masochistic or just a romantic mind
That makes me want what I can’t have
Is it too fantastic that I might walk this line
That many others failed to hold in the past
The serenade of the band playing the streets tonight
She takes me by the hand
Behind the curtains away from the flashing lights
Her lipstick lips tell me that I’m her man

It’s too late now, the sun’s gone down
The rains have come and we’re about to drown
It washes off her Cheshire grin
And I’m flailing my arms just to tread this water again

She gave me her bed to warm my cold bones at night
I fell asleep with her head on my chest
I left in the morning without turning on her light
She mumbled “goodbye” from her bed
I walked these streets, the day was young, we were both satisfied
I popped some gum for my morning breath
I just called to say I love you, I should have lied I couldn’t hide
And the rain it fell on my head

It’s too late now, the sun’s gone down
The rains have come and we’re about to drown
It washes off her Cheshire grin
And I’m flailing my arms just to tread this water again
