Yeah, that's right

I stand out breaking
In the Portland rain
I see the end there in your eyes
As I watch you drive away

I walk back blind
Into my cold dream house
And I think about the damage
As I put the big light out

I sit down smoking
On my basement floor
I hear footsteps up above me
And they are right outside my front door

The only place that I wanna be
Is watching you move up on top of me
The only sound that I wanna hear
Is the rain against my window
As you whisper in my ear

Baby, you know I love it
When you call me baby, baby

I go upstairs
And find my twelve year old
She's got tears running down her face
Sitting sad at my piano

She sings soft words
From that old Beatles song
And I think about my yesterday
And all the things I did wrong

The only place that I wanna be
Is watching you sweet dream
In bed right next to me
The only sound that I wanna hear
Is the rain against my window
As I pull you near

Don't give up on me
Baby, can't you you see?
We could make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
Wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me
We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me

I stand out in the rain
Where I watched you drive away
Never thought I'd live to see
This fucked-up day

Stand out in the rain
In the middle of the night
Wish that it could wash away
The beast inside

The only thing I wanna do
Is kiss you when I am coming
Deep inside of you
The only sound that I wanna hear
Is the rain against my window
As I hold you

Don't give up on me
Baby, can't you see?
We can make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
Wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me
We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
Don't give up on me
