I was sitting on the edge of his bed
Staring at the headlines on the paper
He said, "Look at poor Gene Kelly"
I guess he won't be singing in the rain
Just take away all my heroes
Will you take away my pain?

Take away my pain
Leave the cold outside
Please don't let it rain
Don't stumble on my pride
Take away my pain
Oh I'm not frightened anymore
Just stay with me tonight
I'm tired of this fight
Soon I'll be knockin' at your door

She was standing by the edge of his bed
Staring at the message on their faces
He said, "What else can you do, babe?
I guess, I won't be coming home again
Just took away all my promises
Make them take away my pain

Take away my pain
Leave the cold outside
Please don't let it rain
Don't stumble on my pride
Take away my pain
I'm not frightened anymore
Just stay with me tonight
I'm tired of this fight
Soon I'll be knockin' at your door

His final scene
The actor bows
And all those years
Are gone somehow
The crowd applauds
The curtain falls

I was standing by the edge of the wall
Noticed my reflection in the bricks
And I saw you lookin' back again
And I knew that for a moment
You were calling up my name
Took away my heroes
Can you take away my pain?

Take away my pain
Let the cold inside
It's time to let it rain
There's nothing left to hide
Take away my pain
Oh I'm not frightened anymore
I'm learning to survive
Without you in my life
Til' you come knockin' at my door
