In the Rain

by

I want to be there by your side
I want to drink all of my pride
for it’s you I’ve lost in the rain
can’t take it back, wish I could
take it all back tonight
what I said, I didn’t mean,
you know anger had its way
and with me it’s ridin’ the night
it’s ridin’ the night with —

There’s so much more I’d love to say
but I’m lost for words, can’t speak
‘round you I feel forever weak
‘cause you’ve planted your feelings deep
I’m the Earth, and you’re stone beneath
my shovel hits so jagged
I’ve cut you again and again, left my mark
but it’s you who’s stole my heart
forevermore, foreverness
we belong to Death

Now hear my words ring true
nothing false within my core
burnin’ on, a flame forever weak
this is what you do to me
and as much as I try to fight, it’ll never die
this flame within, these voices win
I’m dark once again

The voices of love cast a shadow
what I said, I didn’t mean,
you know anger had its way
and with me it’s ridin’ the night
burnin’ out slowly in this storm
palms down, knees wet
standing in the rain for a match
that’ll never ignite my core
I’m fading away
the dark is all I’ve known
let it be the rest I crave,
‘cause forever I’ll kneel alone
in the rain, the poison which drains
every drop of fuel from me

What I said, I didn’t mean,
you know anger had its way
and with me it’s ridin’ the night
let it take —
