The Wonder Years - Raining in Kyoto

Текст песни: Raining in Kyoto

[Verse 1]
Raining in Kyoto
It's flooding the streets
I'm nursing a coffee from a vending machine
I saw the god of rice, a fox with a key
I woke up blind with a headache
Grinding my teeth
Confused and alone and taking pills to sleep
They soften your absence but they don't let me dream

[Verse 2]
Raining in Kyoto
My breath turns into steam
I'll buy you a candle, not even sure what it means
But I cursed at the matches
And drown in my grief
An older man stood close by, and smiled at me
I rung the bell like he did
And I told you I'm sorry
A makeshift funeral, I tried setting you free

[Chorus 1]
You're half asleep
And I bought you a radio to drown out the machines
Hospital light, you asked about the weather, wished that they'd let you outside

[Verse 3]
Raining in Kyoto
I'm starting to shake
They'll hold your service tomorrow
I'm an ocean away
Reached into my pocket, found a small paper crane
It's been over a year now
April fades into May
I've barely stopped moving, I've been so fucking afraid
Too much of a coward to even visit your grave

[Chorus 2]
You're half awake
And I bought you a radio to play the blues away
With my hand to hold, you asked about the weather, wish they'd let you die at home

[Chorus 3]
You're half awake
And I bought you a radio to play the blues away
Hospital light, you asked about the weather wished that they'd let you outside

[Outro]
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodbye
