wait for a rainstorm
to come wash the scum off
the streets you walk at night

curse god for hindsight
the soft skirt of his light and charm
you painted his portrait
on the inside of your toilet
to remind you that he’s gone

you wait for a rainstorm
to come wash the scum off
the streets you walk at night

it’s all right
to wear your heart on the outside of your sleeve
you don’t mind
if it’s cold out, it’s dark down by your street
it’s all right
to wear your heart on the outside of your sleeve
you don’t mind
if it’s cold out, it’s dark down by your street

wait for a rainstorm
to come wash the scum off
the streets you walk at night

curse god for hindsight
the soft skirt of his light and charm
you branded his portrait
on the inside of your toiletry
to remind you that he’s gone

you wait for a rainstorm
to come wash the scum off
the streets you walk at night

it’s all right
to wear your heart on the outside of your sleeve
you don’t mind
if it’s cold out, it’s dark down by your street
it’s all right
to wear your heart on the outside of your sleeve
you don’t mind
if it’s cold out, it’s dark down by your street

    General Commenthow has no one commented on this song? such a great, eclectic use of instruments and freak-folk. i have no idea what it's about, but it's damn catchy.

    Memory*the soft skirt...

    Instead of that, it sounds more to me like "obscured by his light and charm."
