It's funny how the smile in your eyes
Is slowly fading with the last days in July
The year is drowning like the calendar grows thin
You'll sail away again with your back against the wind.

And when the cold wind blows your gone
And I will hold my head again
But you can't run from the truth
Ahh ooo oo the London rain

_________ the beaches where the world is cold and weak
And press me flowers in the pages of the diary's you keep
I still don't feel the spot besides me in the bed you sleep
As the calendar repeats

And as the cold wind blows your gone
And I will hold my head again
But you can't run from the truth
Ahh ooo ooo the London rain

Yeah
Just say it like you mean it
Life's like a summer on your face
I swear i believe that,
that someday you will stay
I can't take or leave it
i'll take it anywhere with you
I'll take it with

The cold wind blows, your gone
And I will hold my head again
But you can't run from the truth
Ahh ooo ooo the London rain

    General CommentMORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS BAND!
    Incredibleeeeeee!

    This song is about someone who is upset because they are forced to make a life change. It's about doing something that you don't want to happen, but it inevitably will occur.

    For example, in the opening verse, when it says: "It's funny how the smile in your eyes/Is slowly fading with the last days in July/The year is drowning like the calendar grows thin/You'll sail away again with your back against the wind."
    The summer (the last days in July), or the easy and enjoyable time in this person's life is ending. They are forced to leave this point, so they are fighting the wind, the inevitable, which is pushing them.

    It could also be about someone who is dying, and they know their time is running out. (Although it seems a little upbeat for that.) The lyrics says "I still don't feel the spot besides me in the bed you sleep/As the calendar repeats". As the years go on, the person is still gone even though they didn't want to go, they weren't ready.

    As for the line that is blank, I believe it is "Please send me beaches when my world is cold and weak"

    "Please send me beaches when my world is cold and weak...
    ...[this line is fine]
    ...It still won't fill the spot beside me in the bed where you sleep"
