Ryan Adams - Dirty Rain

Last time I was here it was raining
It ain't raining anymore
The streets were drowned and the water's waning
All the ruins washed ashore
I'm just looking through the rubble
Trying to find out who we were
Last time I was here it was raining
It ain't raining anymore
Last time I was here you were waiting
You're not waiting anymore
The windows broke and the smoke's escaping
A book's scattered across the floor
And the church bells ringing through the sirens
And your coat was full of bullet holes
Last time I was here you were waiting
You ain't waiting anymore

So
May the wind blow
May the moonlight know your name
So
Let the needle move the record 'round til the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancing in the dirty rain

Last time I was here it was raining
Like you ain't ever seen it rain
And your eyes were filled with terror and smoke from the gasoline
As the stars exploded with gunfire
I saw you smiling just before
Last time I was here you were crying
You're not crying anymore

So
May the wind blow
May the moonlight know your name
So
Let the needle move the record 'round til the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancing in the dirty rain
Mmmm dirty rain
In the dirty rain
