Rain

the streets are heavy with rain
my thoughts are heavy with you again
the wind is pushing me back in time
i felt you so close to me
and i was so close to asking you
but only one thing came to mind

that night the silence
save for your breathing
the dark
that night the stillness
save for your hand on mine

it seemed like hours had passed
it seemed the secret was yours to tell
but you wanted me to give the sign
the slightest move and then stop
the slightest touch and we both let go
and all our caution was thrown aside

that night the silence
save for your breathing
the dark
that night the stillness
save for your hand on mine

i found myself back outside
you found yourself turning round to go
the wind had rendered the world sublime
