The Sound of Rain

Rain falls, I drift away to long-past days again
We were young, ordinary, hardly worth an elegy
Playing songs on Saturday as the rain pattered away
We’d no idea, not a clue what the future held for you
 
So much time’s gone, all my words come out wrong
 
But it’s nothing, it’s nothing but the sound of rain
It’s nothing, it’s nothing but the sound of rain
Heard long ago, long, long, long ago
 
Rain falls, I almost hear our voices in my ears
‘Have you heard this one?’ you’ll say, wind the tape back and press play
We listen as the rain comes down to sweet long-lost indie sounds
I see the photos on your wall – in my mind I see them still
 
So much time’s gone, the picture fades but lingers on
 
But it’s nothing, it’s nothing but the sound of rain
It’s nothing, it’s nothing but the sound of rain
Heard long ago, long, long, long ago
