City’s looking like rain throughout the evening
I ain’t leaving the house without a coat
I’m in need of some time to keep my mind afloat
Take a trip to the corner for some cigarettes
Take a sip of some whiskey along the way
Take a bit of this rain to wash my trouble away
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn’t have to take it that way

Buy a ticket for one to see the cinema
Pick up some popcorn and peanut M&Ms
And when the movie is done I stay and watch it again
Out in the street all the stores got gates in front of them
And every window got a beautiful display
I wanna break through the gates
I’m gonna find a way
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn’t have to take it that way

Couple nights all alone she went ahead, changed the locks on me
Couple days on her own she got a guy, looks a lot like me
But that’s the way that it goes
The story everyone knows
Pretty soon I’m like all the other runaways
Find food with my nose, ruined all my good clothes
I should have known I should have known we gonna end up this way

And in the end the storm drowns the city
The lightning strikes too many miles away
The thunder finally arrives, he’s got nothing to say
I really thought that we were doing okay
You know you didn’t have to take it that way
I didn’t know what to say, I’s only trying a play, I didn’t know
You know you didn’t have to take it that way
