I wandered through each rain soaked street
a meaning to unfold
Sadness on each face I meet turn
my collar to the cold
The wind blows strong. The hour is late
but then I'm nearly home
Misread cues, broken promises
you'll make it all alone
A picture forms inside my head
of when the sun shone down
and then again, it's like you said
summer comes around
If your dreams don't scare you then they're not big enough
If you want the smooth then you better take the rough
A perfect world with perfect friends,
something you won't find.
Live your life in a warm vacuum
lightin' candles for the blind
Always said it would come to this
but then what do I know?
Your talent lost, your pain has eased
but why'd ye have to go?
and now in this world of madness
we survivors struggle on
A faded picture on a faded wall
tells us that you've gone
