As the rain comes pouring

I realize what has been left behind

A picture of me with a sparkle in my eye

Dreams come and go

But this nightmare stays alive

As you broke me like glass I swore I’d never survive

As empty as the ocean and as strong as the pin

You didn’t give me all you had

Just to let go and push me in

I trusted your soul

That everything was right

Until the day I reach for your hand

And I fell into the night.

Again I walked and again I searched

But you were no where to be found

Until I saw your name in lights

Plastered to the ground.
