And if I knew more about fabric
I'd be better able to describe your dress
I just remember it was blue
And made you stand out from the rest
We were sitting on a beach somewhere
You had flowers in your hair
The sun was sinking down into the sea
And though we must have talked for hours
I can't remember what was said
As all the words I should have used on you
Kept bouncing 'round my head
You know I tried so hard to be so cool
Tried harder still not to play the fool
Something told me we were meant to be

But like all things of flesh and bone
You had to slip away
Somehow I wasn't meant to have you then
Not even for a day
I tore my heart and skin out thinking about you
Suffered through a life lived without you
Hoping you'd come back when it was time

And it'll be a cold day in August
By the time I know what's going on
And while the meantime weighs upon us
I can act like nothing's wrong
And I'll just keep spittin' lyrics in the rain
Til the fates say I can see you again
And maybe we can make up for lost time

The problem with my heart is I can't keep the thing in line
I'll spend an afternoon beside you
Not I need to make you mine
I wish that there was something I could say
To make you stay but that's just the way
It works sometimes and I won't shed no tears

And it'll be a cold day in August
By the time I know what's going on
And while the meantime weighs upon us
I can act like nothing's wrong
And I'll just keep spittin' lyrics in the rain
Til the fates say I can see you again
And maybe we can make up for lost time
