Different shapes and sizes
Hiding the horizon

In the distance
Coming to change my plans
All my dreams will melt like sand

The moment that you say good-bye
They're going to rush right to the sky

Baby, baby, please don't go

It's going to rain
It's going to rain
It's going to rain down tears
Of heartaches and fears

It's going to rain
It's going to rain
I know for sure
Cause you don't reach for me no more

It's going to rain
It's going to rain
There in the distance
Is that number one pain

Thunder is the warning
So dark and so alarming

Go away, go away
Go, don't take away my sunny days

Leave me be
Getting so dark out
I just can't see
