Rain on my pillow


Rain on my pillow, tears in my eyes,

The pain never ending, a smile my disguise,

The end of a romance that drowned in a still,

I pray that you'll stay, but I doubt that you will.


Rain on my pillow, the blues in B sharp,

Pain like no other dismantled my heart,

The drop of a key on the letterbox mat,

I know by the sound that you won't be back.


Rain on my pillow, black clouds on my mind,

The pain of the lonely, the blue moon's all mine,

A night of confession of disrupted sleep,

I know that you've gone and this time it's for keeps.
