“Why won’t you run into the rain and play. And let tears splash all over you?“
Come and see
I swear by now I’m playing time against my troubles, oh
Oh, I’m coming slow but speeding
Do you wish a dance?
And while I’m in the front
The play on time is won
Oh, but the difficulty’s coming here
I won’t tell you to begin
But it’s coming too much more
Me, come down that ghosts that’s come back
Reeling in you now
Oh, what if they came down crushing?
In a way
I used to play
For all of the loneliness
That nobody notices now
Boy begging slow I’m coming here
Why won’t you ever be glad?
It melts into wonder
I came in praying for you
Why won’t you run
Into the rain and play
And let tears splash all over you?
