I am not trying to avoid you
But I know it looks that way
I am not trying to cut off
What you’re trying to say
Don’t get discouraged, we’ll talk on another day
Okay?
It’s just that the rain is coming down
The rain is coming down
And I wanna go inside where it’s warm and dry

I don’t disparage you motives
I know your heart is good
You’ll make it out of the woods real soon
Knock on wood
Am I not paying attention as well as I could?
I should
It’s just that the pain is coming down
The pain is coming down
I can barely stand up when I feel you cry

I feel the pull of the life I have built
Out of comfort and cowardice, stiffness and guilt
And it stops me from staying too long

Your situation is bad
And I’m glad you reached out to me
Previous plans just prevent me
From being the key
Maybe you’ll find someone else
Who can set your soul free
We’ll see
But I feel my world is coming down
World is coming down
And it keeps me from making heartfelt try

Cuz I don’t believe in the future or past
Like a normal man
I just keep stretching the present
As far as I can
And when you say yesterday
Might as well be The Sudan
(Or Japan or Iran)
And I feel the time is coming down
Time is coming down
And tomorrow’s a good way to say goodbye

And I feel the pull of the life I have built
Out of comfort and cowardice, stiffness and guilt
And it stops me from staying too long
And it stops me from staying too long

This is not just an excuse
But I know it will sound that way
It’s hard enough for me to fight my way back
Through the gray
Don’t get discouraged, we’ll talk on another day
Okay?
It’s just that the rain is coming down
The rain is coming down
And I wanna go inside where it’s warm and dry
