lyrics

Rain poured on top of my roof
From out of the sky
Out of the sky
Out of the sky fell some diamonds on you
And they caught my eye
They caught my eye
They caught my eye as they shimmered in your hair
Turning your straight lines to waves, I felt the air
Fill up my lungs
Where your song is sung
That night when we drove down the highway
In two separate cars
Well we weren't far
We weren't far from the world underneath us
Where things get so hard
No, we weren't far
We weren't far from just saying how it is
And turning those straight lines to waves with just a kiss
You filled up my lungs
Where your song is sung
If time became suddenly solid
Like tangible, malleable clay
I would hold that time in my hands
And let the fabric fray
But each time that I've tried to keep it
It just slips through my fingers again
So if 2a.m.'s in my pocket
I'm gonna make it rain til I say when
Somewhere a long way from here
Is someone like me
And someone like you
Someone like you who's got nothing to fear
And they'll make it through
With someone like you
Someone like you hits the ground and starts to run
Smiles big and wide into the barrel of a gun
You filled up my lungs where your song is sung
You filled up my lungs where your song is sung
You filled up my lungs where your song is sung
