Sun is gone and I'm on my own in a thunderstorm
But it's not about to turn me back around
Hail is under my feet
And lightnin' is in my head

Deep inside I am tired of runnin'
I don't mind if the rain is comin'

Walking onto the water
Where I was meant to be

Deep inside I am tired of runnin'
I don't mind that the rain is comin'
Deep inside I am tired of runnin'
I don't mind that the rain is comin' down

Lost my way into you
And I don't know what else to do
But wait for a calm in the storm
Hopin' it subsides
And nothin' is wrong when it rains
Even from my eyes

Broke your vision of love
As I saw through the sky above
And Heaven was windy with change
Blowin' through my time
And nothin' is wrong when it rains
Even from my eyes

I wait for a calm in the storm
Hopin' it subsides
And nothin' is wrong when it rains
Even from my eyes

Yes I do, believe the rain
And yes I do
Deceive it when I can
If I was runnin' and I fell
If it's subsidin' I can't tell
Looking at nature through a hole in the clouds

As you take a final bow
The earth creates
A dark and stormy now
But you must answer if it calls
Under the sky and when it falls
Lookin' at nature through a hole in clouds

Yes, I can explain
Anyone's pain
It isn't mine to know
Yes, I feel it too
No, I'm not you
Is that the way you feel?

When the first light closes the night
And you feel unusually right
As sun streams it all around
Filling you up with desire

But I love you only to find
I can't have your heart inside mine
On the outside you run away
Havin' your day in sun

And you won't realize
'Til after it's done
You're back where your dreams began

Before I became who I am
And before you were ever like this
Even though you came to me
Everything but what I see
Havin' my day in the sun

And will I find myself
After it's done
Suddenly realize
I'm back where my dreams began

I'm on my own
I'm on my own
Sun is gone and I'm on my own in a thunderstorm
Sun is gone and I'm on my own in a thunderstorm

Deep inside I am tired of runnin'
I don't mind that the rain is comin'
Deep inside I am tired of runnin'
I don't mind that the rain is coming down
