"So. Central Rain" as written by and Patrick Buck Markus Binapfl....
Did you never call? I waited for your call
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away
The trees will bend, the cities wash away
The city on the river there is a girl without a dream

I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

Eastern to Mountain, third party call, the lines are down
The wise man built his words upon the rocks
But I'm not bound to follow suit
The trees will bend, the conversation's dimmed
Go build yourself another home, this choice isn't mine

I'm sorry, I'm sorry
Did you never call? I waited for your call
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away
The ocean sang, the conversation's dimmed
Go build yourself another dream, this choice isn't mine

I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

    General Comment"The wise man built his words upon the rocks
    But I'm not bound to follow suit "
    One of my favourite lyrics ever... I think the song could be about a relationship where two people want different things... he is restless and wants to live and take risks, whereas she wants to settle down - "a girl without a dream". He says I'm sorry, I love you but I've got to move on.
