Janet says it looks like a rainy day today
Just another rainy day
As I lean my chin slowly up against the window pane
It's another gray rainy day but go on try it again
Try, try, try, try to get goin'
But the rain comes down, forcin' you to stay inside
Holdin' you back from the places that you usually hide
Are you all alone? Or more than anything before?
Janet says she loves you, is there something troublin' you?
It's not that easy to say, for I feel at times such a presence
In the room of friends I knew especially on these rainy days
But go on try to stay
Fly, fly, fly, we're flyin' away
We hold on to memories of everyone
Like existing clouds - a shadow dance before the sun
And down with the rain
I can see the separations come
Janet says maybe you would rather sing to me
It might be easier that way
I guess it would and it ought to be a simple melody
One that sort of suits the rain
Everything rolls off unwinding reels
Of remembering how it used to feel to belong somewhere
