Perhaps It Is The Rain

 

Perhaps it is the rain about to fall 

Or the phone begging to call 

Maybe my memories belie 

The truths of you and I 

Perhaps it is the rain 

Perhaps it is the rain 

Tonight it’s raining in boston 

And I am lost in thoughts of you 

Darlin’, just pick up the phone, don’t leave me alone 

And lost in you 

I am a transient moving on 

After years immersion in you 

What do I do with this language I honed. 

Your careful accent I knew? 

Perhaps it is the rain 

Perhaps it is the rain 

perhaps it is the rain, 

and I am the sun 

You said, always the sun 

to your hard rain 

So now on the eve of the day that marks 

A year since I left your shores 

Can you feel the rain and the edgy dark 

No sign of relief in the weather report 

Perhaps it is the rain 

Perhaps it is the rain
