Lyrics


The Sun And The Rainfall

Someone will call

Something will fall

And smash on the floor

Without reading the text

Know what comes next

Seen it before

And it's painful


Things must change

We must rearrange them

Or we'll have to estrange them

All that I'm saying

A game's not worth playing

Over and over again


You're the one I like best

You retain my interest

You're the only one

If it wasn't for you

Don't know what I'd do

Unpredictable like the sun

And the rainfall
