Hey
does it ever make you wonder
what's on my mind?
I
I was only ever running
back to your side

I never cried
I just watched my life go by
it's just a pack of lies
coz you're leaving me behind

why
after this long is there nothing I'll keep
oh I can shout
you'll pretend you're falling asleep

I live a lie
yeah
believing that you're mine
it's just a waste of time
coz you're leaving me behind

hey there's not a cloud in the sky
it's as blue as your goodbye
and I thought that it would rain
on a day like today

hey there's not a cloud in sight
it's as blue as your blue goodbye
and I thought that it would rain
the day you went away

hey
does it ever make you wonder
what's on my mind?
ooh yeah,
I was only ever running back
to your side

hey there's not a cloud in the sky
it's as blue as your goodbye
and I thought that it would rain
on a day like today

hey there's not a cloud in sight
it's as blue as your blue goodbye
and I thought that it would rain
the day you went away

he's on the buses
and the aeroplanes

with some groceries
and a sleeping bag

    General CommentShe was in love with someone and when they left her she thought she'd be sad "i thought it would rain", but it turned out to be a good thing "theres not a cloud in sight".
    thats my take anyway... very good emotional song
