On a Rainy day...I sit next to my window,
and think about us;
But I never think about what went wrong.
We're too old to play blame games,
We're too young to waste our lives in regret.
All I can think about are the happy times
We spent together. The laughter still echoes,
And all the plans we'd once made comes rushing back to me.
I don't know where you've gone off now,
Because though I know where you are,
You're no longer here with me.
There was always something so peaceful about the rain,
Who knew that a curtain of water could protect us both
From what the world thought about us,
Even during the times we wanted to run away.
The rain was always my friend.
I made a mistake, I made an enemy out of it.
I used to blame everything that went astray on the rain.
Now, I know better. It's time to leave it all behind.
Yes, I know. You've moved on. The happiness my company
Once gave you is gone. It vanished the minute the rain
And the one second I thought life was supposed to be better
than this adventure.
Rain came back, reminding exactly why this adventure was what
life is about.
I reached out for you hand, but you were already gone.
All I have saved up from back then are the memories. They live on.
I reach out of the window, watching the rain fall against my skin,
I recall the times we both loved the rain. And I smile when I
remember you quoting,
"Don't threaten me with love, baby. Let's just go walking in the rain."
And I never bargained for what happened right after that.
It was enough to drive anyone insane. And I am only human.
If I could see you now, hold you hand and smile at you,
I would have told you the same thing, you know.
Would've given you a tight hug and said,
"I am not trying to make you fall in love... I am just asking you to come with me for a walk in the rain."
Just because I cannot move on, doesn't mean you need to be with me forever.
I'll find my way out, because I sure as hell remembering walking in.
On a rainy day, I sit at the window, watching the drops of rain hit the ground,
I listen to each them etching their memories, and I remember you.
From a time long ago. Whatever were you thinking,
I still don't know...
I never did plan to fall in love with you,
But I did.
I never thought the rain could evoke such feelings,
But it always does.
