I've been longing for as long as I can remember
for something like this to go my way
and it always feels so right
and then you take it all away

tell me how will I fall in love like that again
when I'm still singing my way through tears in the pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights of ours together
see I thought I'd found a love I'd have forever

now I'm hiding myself
behind this shattered veil
and I know it's only me to blame
and I'm swimming through this ocean of grief
and I'm sailing up your way

tell me how will I fall in love like that again
I'm still swimming my way through tears in pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights of ours together
see I thought I'd found a love I'd have forever

yeah, yeah, yeah, and I…

and everything in this house
has something to give
but I can't escape
even though I try
photographs and memories
I never knew I had so many tears to cry

and I, yeah, and I
die, die, die
I never knew I had so many tears to cry

tell me how will I fall in love like that again
when I'm still singing my way through tears in the pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights of ours together
see I thought I'd found a love I'd have forever

    General Commentthis would most likely be imogen's lower register.
    it may sound crazy, but a lot of girls can sing incredibly low.

    General Commentgood song. no matter what.....
    the lyrics are real strong. Its about someone getting out of a relationship but telling the person tht they were with b4 how am i supposed to fall in love again... If it isnt with you? he or she thought that the person they were with was their one....

    General Commentlol, imogen heap is not a transvestite though I think she has marfan's syndrome which is the same genetic disorder that lincoln had. I have perfect pitch and that is imogens voice. She has an extraordinary range high and low. The high end of the register is way too high for almost all guys.
