BLACK RAIN

BLACK RAIN

Lurking in the darkness just to hide the pain
To bury my emotions that was left out in the rain
Why didn't somebody tell me before I sacrificed my soul
That the passion of hot emotions can turn & run so cold

Black black rain I'm a creature in the night
Black black rain causing fear & fright
Black black rain goodbye my dear good-night

It's been so long but it seems just yesterday
The pain is embedded all my clouds are gray
She was my one & only then she turned away
Objects in my mind keep begging her to stay

Black black rain I'm a creature in the night
Black black rain causing fear & fright
Black black rain  goodbye my dear good-night

I lay in my bed her beauty in my head
Another lifeless body counting up the dead 
She's pasted on my wall & all down the hall
Clips of her fall newspapers stacked so tall

Black black rain I'm a creature in the night
Black black rain causing fear & fright
Black black rain goodbye my dear good-night
