lyrics

The thunder shook me
Out of my dream
And the wind kept me awake.

The persistent tapping
Above my head
Is more than I can take.

Looking the storm in the eye
I can only see your face
I never meant to fall behind
I never meant to fall from grace.

My heart is racing
As I struggle to stay sane
And I pretend I'll be OK--
And I listen to the lullaby rain
As it dances on the rooftop.
I hear it sing your name.

The days are wretched
The nights are worse
And the thunderhead looms above

Lumbering onward
Like a skybound hearse;
A symbol of our dying love.

Looking the storm in the eye
I can only wish you the best
I never meant to steal your time
I never meant to make a mess.

My heart is aching
As I sift through the remains.
And I long for one more day--
And I'm taunted by the lullaby rain
As it dances on the rooftop.
I hear it sing your name.

My heart is breaking
As I sever every chain.
And I keep the tears at bay--
And I curse the lullaby rain
As it dances on the rooftop.
I hear it sing your name.
