i came home
in the morning
just a little bit ago

you lie asleep
in our bed
all twisted in your clothes

when the rain came down
upon our rooftop
with a rhythm like this

let the hair stand up
on my shoulders
when you open your mouth

say aaooh
say aaooh

so i wrote you a letter
etched into my forearm
with the pen that you gave me

'cause if there's one thing that i mustn't face
this is permanent
this is permanent

wish that i was strong enough
wish that i could give it all
wish that i could change enough
to be yours

wish that i could give it all
wish that i was strong enough
wish that i could change enough
to be yours

wish that i was strong enough
wish that i could give it all
wish that i could change enough
to be yours

wish that i could give it all
wish that i could change enough
wish that i was strong enough
to be yours

    Song MeaningJohnny Belinda is an old movie that was considered controversial for its time. One of the main female characters is deaf and is raped by an acquaintance. She gets pregnant. The doctor who had fallen in love with her is suspected as the father. She ends up killing shooting the man who raped her with a shotgun.

    Great Song though.
