lyrics

I wake up in the morning with a vague recollection
of arms once wrapped 'round my waist
I roll over slowly and gaze at the wall
brush it off, and get on with my day
I walk down the stairs, grind up the coffee
let it brew, while I try to grasp
at the feeling that lingers from whatever I was dreaming
then I throw away the grounds and it all rushes back

it's the morning that we woke up to the thunder and rain
when you held me and told me let's lay here all day
while the heaven pours its judgement down
your memory leaves me and the rain stays around

there are things I come across in my day-to-day living
that cause a paint to pass through
i'm fine one moment and the next i'm in ruin
and I don't know what I should do
because all that used to bring me joy
no longer satisfies
I look at my friends and I see only strangers
they don't know how i'm dying inside

from the moment that we woke up to the thunder and rain
when you held me and told me let's lay here all day
while the heaven pours its judgement down
your memory leaves me and the rain stays around

now i'm outside of my body and my eyes are glazed over
though I'm sober, or at least i've tried
but there's a haze wrapped around me like i'm coming down
from the biggest lift of my life
and the nighttime leaves me deeply disturbed
by an aching i've never known
i awaken from sleep again and again
this lingering feeling just keeps lingering on

like the morning that we woke up to the thunder and rain
when you held me and told me let's lay here all day
while the heaven pours its judgement down
your memory leaves me and the rain stays around
your memory leaves and the rain...
