  • The sky is crying the streets are full of tears
    Rain come down wash away my fears
    And all this writing on the wall
    Oh I can read between the lines
    Rain come down forgive this dirty town
    Rain come down and give this dirty town
    A drink of water a drink of wine

    If I've been hard on you I never chose to be
    I never wanted no one else
    I tried my best to be somebody you'd be close to
    Hand in hand like lovers are supposed to

    As you'd sleep I'd think my heart would break in two
    I'd kiss your cheek I'd stop myself from waking you
    But in the dark you'd speek my name
    You'd say baby what's wrong
    Oh, here I am baby I'm coming back for more
    I'm like a wave that's going to roll into the shore
    Yes and if my love's in vain how come my love is so strong?

    Now you and me go parallel together and apart
    And you keep your perfect distance and it's tearing at my heart
    Did you never feel the distance?
    You never tried to cross no line
    Now it's another dirty river and another dirty scar
    And I don't know who's kissing you and I don't know where you are
    So far from home don't you think of me sometimes
