first there was the dawn
and i couldn’t sing a song to you
then there came the rain
but i couldn’t seem to blame you

sometimes it rains
sometimes it snows on you
sometimes it sleets
sometimes it defeats you

it’s quiet on dark nights
and you must give up the fight before long
trust is not a game
that naïve stupid people play in youth

sometimes it rains
sometimes it floods you
sometimes you bleed
sometimes you just need to make it through
make it through

you will always hurt
you will always sting
you’re my badlands
my grand canyon
my empty stream
you’re my reservation
my second place consolation
my devastation
a thorn
a pang
a deep dark heartache
my greatest fear
a lonely tear
an empty caress
an earthquake
a broken plate
lost innocence
a cheap defense
my delusion
my confusion
a cancer
a wrong answer
a lost game
fickle as fame
a bad critique
a glass that leaks
a fallen leaf
talk too shallow
ground that’s fallow
fatal attraction
nuclear reaction
false resurrection
thrown election
you’re my silence
my violence
you’re a sad song
you’re a long, you’re a long,, you’re a long way from home
you’re a long, long, long, long way from home

you will always hurt
you will always sting
cause you won’t let go of everything
until you’re quiet one dark night
and you give up the fight you’ve fought so long
and find that trust is not a game
that naïve stupid people play in youth
and you let it rain
you let it flood
you let it drive out all the pain of love
