with another foot closer
to the preverbial ledge
with another broken heart
and busted edge
with another empty promise
that i know i can't keep
and another fading night
because i know i can't sleep

with everything you are
and everything i'm not
with everything i've lost
and all these vices i've got
with every waking second
of every fucking day
with all these haunting voices
that i wish would go away

and i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
and wash off the pain
that i've grown to need
i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
they say it's cleansing
and i believe

they say regret looks back
confusion looks around
they say faith looks to the sky
so i focus on the ground
cause i'm stepping on the cracks
practicing what i can say
just to try to make it better
or just make it ok

and i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
and wash off the pain
that i've grown to need
i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
they say it's cleansing

and you ask
"are you mad at me?"
and i confirm
you don't even bother asking why
you're unconcerned
from kicking you out
to kissing in the rain
this life is like a bad romance movie
so goodbye to old lovers
goodbye to this town
goodbye to my friends
who feel they once knew me well

cause i got me some songs
and i got me a band
and i got me a day job
to buy me a van
and i'm leaving this town
and you people i hate
and i'll smile to myself
as we hit the next state

and i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
and wash off the pain
that i've grown to need
someone turn down the sun
bring me some night
i can't stand the way
i look in this daylight
i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
and wash off the pain
that i've grown to need
i am praying for rain
to fall down on me
they say it's cleansing
and i believe

they say that miracles never cease
well i am totally alone
they say the history just repeats and repeats
i am once again on my own
