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 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 speak 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 got 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 sometime
Sky is crying see the streets are full of tears Rain coming down to wash away my fears And all this writing on the wall Oh I can read between the lines
