Lyrics
Yesterday I heard the rain whispering your name
Asking where you'd gone
It fell softly from the clouds on the silent crowds
As I wandered on

Out of doorways black umbrellas came to pursue me
Faceless people as they passed were looking through me
No one knew me

Yesterday I shut my eyes, face up to the skies
Drinking in the rain
But your image still was there floating in the air
Brighter than a flame

Yesterday I saw a city full of shadows without pity
And I heard the steady rain whispering your name
Whispering your name

Asking where you'd gone

Yesterday I saw a city full of shadows without pity
And I heard the steady rain whispering your name
Whispering your name
