"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 CommentThis song reeks strongly of regret, this huge chance passed and the narrator couldn't stop it from doing so. or maybe he regrets taking action on it, and quite literally feels sorry to the other for not having the guts to take the chance. on a more personal note, it just sounds so big and haunting, even for a little pop song. rem at their fucking finest.
