listenin’ to rain…

i’d stay up all night listenin’ to rain…
drops of water softly hittin’ windows…
as trains wailed into darkness…
hum of motors in streets below…
a symphony really…

cop cars carryin’ criminals to holdin’ tanks…
ambulances vainly driving the dead down county roads…
wishes for more time…wishes for more time…
helicopters fly over a sleepin’ citizenry…
dreams keep ’em safe…

this darkness…
not a star in the sky…
just lights reflected off buildings…
oranges and yellows…oranges and yellows…
alone never felt so alone…

i’d stay up all night listenin’ to rain…
